ABOUT LADIES ROCK CAMP
Ladies Rock Camp (LRC) is a weekend day camp in Philadelphia, PA that provides an opportunity for women 19+ to demystify the joy of making music and playing in a band! You’ll learn and/or practice your instrument of choice*, and receive instrument instruction all weekend. You’ll form a band and work together to write an original song that you will play together on stage on Sunday. The Ladies Rock Camp Showcase is an unbelievable experience! In addition, you will have the opportunity to attend a variety of workshops. LRC happens twice a year, once in the spring and once in late Fall/early Winter.
*Choice of instruments includes Bass, Drums, Guitar, Keys & turntables.
Who may apply to Ladies Rock Camp?
Any woman age 19 and over may apply. NO MUSICAL EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. You don’t even have to bring your own instrument, but feel free if you like.
*A note on the name: Girls Rock Philly believes in gender self determination and Ladies Rock Camp is open to all who identify with the female experience.
Tuition for Ladies Rock Camp, like all GRP programs, is sliding scale: $50-$400. We prefer to give our participants the space to decide what amount works best for their budget. Let us know if you have any questions!
Space is limited to 25 participants: first come, first served.
Ladies Rock has taken place in different locations around Philadelphia including: Russell Byers Charter School, FACTs Charter School, and Studio 34.
Enrollment process and confirmation
We will confirm your enrollment via email as soon as we process your application. We will do our best to give you your first or second choice instrument but keep in mind that we need an somewhat even distribution of instruments and levels. We will email you with instrument assignments about a month before camp. We will also announce on our website and other online platforms when enrollment is full. Registration closes two weeks before camp.
Accommodations & Food
Please mark on your application if you need a place to stay or can offer a place to stay for an out of town camper. Otherwise, there are plenty of hotels nearby.

Camp begins on Friday at 4pm and ends Sunday in the evening after the showcase.
You will receive a detailed schedule of the weekend in the weeks leading up to camp. However, you can plan on camp beginning around 4pm on Friday and ending after the showcase (around 10:00PM) on Sunday. Please take these hours into consideration when making travel arrangements and adjusting work schedules. There will be a party after the Showcase on Sunday to celebrate all your hard work!
