Adult Rock Camp (ARC) is a weekend day camp in Philadelphia, PA, that provides an opportunity for women, trans and gender non-binary/genderqueer adults, 19 and over to play music together!

We need rad, rockin' volunteers like YOU to help make it happen!

Volunteer Application (HERE!) – Deadline April 16th

Through our application process, we want to learn more about the the people who would volunteer and shape our camp experience! What is your relationship to music? Why do you rock? What identities do you bring with you? What are you looking for as a volunteer?

Also, this application is one part of a larger organizational commitment to make LRC available and informed by the multitude of different communities across Philly. We believe the power of LRC comes from the way music brings so many different people to the table. GRP is shaped by its participants and volunteers alike!

Interested in facilitating a workshop at camp? Check out this specific workshop application!
