Ladies Rock Camp Boston (LRCB) is an intensive 3-day-weekend program in Jamaica Plain, MA that provides an opportunity for women 21 and over to let loose for the weekend and play rockin’ music together while supporting a great cause (funding scholarships for girls)!
What is LRCB all about?
Programming for LRCB is similar to what girls do during our summer program: receive instrument instruction, form a band, and work together to write an original song and perform your song LIVE – in just three days! In addition, you will have the opportunity to attend a variety of workshops with topics related to being an empowered rocker. All proceeds from LRCB go directly to the Girls Rock Campaign Boston (GRCB).
LRC programmatic function is to generate funds and awareness for GRCB, as well as reach out to women who support our mission. This year we are hoping to raise $30,000 through Ladies Rock Boston to help us make GRCB continue on as a sustainable organization while providing financial aid to all girls who apply!
When is the next LRCB session?!
Our next sessions of Ladies Rock Camp Boston will be:
MARCH 2-4, 2018 & APRIL 6-8, 2018
APPLICATIONS WILL BE AVAILABLE NOVEMBER 1, 2017
Who can apply for LRCB?
LRCB is for any woman, age 21 and over, who wants to rock out while supporting GRCB! There is absolutely no musical experience necessary and we will provide all instruments for all women who attend. While our programming is guided by the experiences of girls and women, we are committed to creating an inclusive environment that supports and welcomes a wide range of marginalized gender identities and expressions. We welcome girls, women, trans, and gender nonconforming youth and adults.
How much is tuition for LRCB?
Tuition for LRC will be on a sliding scale ($275 – $500) based on how much you are able to contribute to Girls Rock Campaign Boston.
Tuition has been set at the absolute lowest amount possible for us to cover our costs and meet expected financial goals for our programs. We are unable to offer a reduced fee for early registration, or other reduced tuition options this year. If you can give more than the tuition, GRCB will enthusiastically accept your donation!
What workshops are offered at LRCB?
Workshops rotate each year but we offer a variety of workshops that have included Combatting Relational Aggression, Pedals & Alternative Sounds, Screen Printing, Songwriting, Women in Rock History and Intro to DJ.
What is the time commitment for LRCB?
LRC is an intensive three day, all day, rock camp. Please check out the sample schedule below to be sure you will be able to commit to the full weekend.
Is LRCB an overnight program?
No! Friday and Saturday nights end at 11:00PM and there are no over night accommodations. If you need a place to stay while attending LRCB, we can try to help you find a host but cannot guarantee that someone will be available to host you.
