NOW: Girls Rock day camp empowers girls through music


SOUTH BEND, Ind. --- The second annual Girls Rock Michiana camp is set to kick off Thursday, several spots are still available but space is limited.

The day camp seeks to empower young girls with two transformative days of self-discovery and music.

Available to girls in fourth through eighth grade, the music camp is a collaboration between the University of Notre Dame’s Gender Studies Program and The Music Village.

These future musicians will get a chance to try out and play a variety of instruments from guitars to the drums.

Campers will work with professional musicians in small groups learning their instruments and the basics of what it takes to become a performer.

Additionally, topics will also cover songwriting, zine making as well as audio and video production.

On July 25, campers will perform the “Girls Rock Anthem”, an original song written by Dena Woods of The Dena Woods Project, Abigail Mullins of SHAM and children’s music specialist Wendelyn Daly.

Space is limited for the two-day camp which runs from Thursday, July 25 to Friday, July 26 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The camp is located at The Music Village on 333 S. Michigan St.

The Music Village hopes to expand the camp from a two-day experience to a full week in the future.

The cost is $100 per attendee but organizers say financial assistance is available upon request and no participant will be turned away due to financial hardship.
