Lethbridge Girls Rock Camp is a non-profit, volunteer driven organization where youth aged 9 to 17 can learn a new instrument (or new techniques on an old one) and express themselves in creative and artistic ways, as well as build self-esteem, confidence, leadership and teamwork skills.
Rocking since 2013, this summer marks LGRC’s eighth summer of helping Southern Alberta youth learn build confidence and new skills. Campers will spend the mornings taking part in instrument instruction, while the afternoons will be split between writing a song and rehearsing with their bands, and participating in various workshops. At the end of the week there will be a Camper Showcase where each band will take to the stage and perform for family, friends, and fans. We have also created an Intern position for our older campers to check out. Interns will be able to step up and take on a leadership role at camp, while learning some of the basics of what happens behind-the-scenes.
LGRC values diversity of age, race, economic status, gender expression, size, physical ability, developmental ability, musical interests, learning styles, nationality, religion, thought, citizenship status, and sexual orientation. We promote respect and do not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia, or other discriminatory behaviour or expression.*
LGRC would like to acknowledge our programming takes place on the territory of the Niitsitapi, which includes the Siksika, the Kainai, and the Piikani Nations. Lethbridge is also home to the Stoney Nakoda and Tsuut’ina Nations, as well as Métis Nation of Alberta.
LGRC also gratefully acknowledges the support of YWCA Lethbridge & District.
