THE STORY: Women Rock Weekend is a private fundraiser for Girls Rock Birmingham, a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering girls and women of all backgrounds and abilities through music education, creative expression, and performance. Girls Rock Birmingham Camp is a week-long program serving girls ages 9-16 in the Birmingham areas. During the week, campers learn an instrument, form a band and write a song which they perform at a the Friday evening showcase. In addition, the girls will participate in workshops centered around empowerment and creativity. Girls Rock values diversity and encourages girls from all backgrounds to apply for camp. We aim to offer the optimal environment for originality & self-expression while allowing the girls to showcase their own individuality and creativity.
