COME ROCK with us
In one week, campers form a band, write an original song, and participate in workshops along the way. These camps take place at Jam Box and Myers Park Baptist Church.
Summer camp registration opens in February. Our camps fill up quickly, so early registration is strongly encouraged (most camps are full by March or April). We also reserve up to half of our camp spots for families applying for scholarships and tuition assistance.
camp program & mission
At We Rock Charlotte, campers learn much more than how to rock!
Our summer camp curriculum teaches these diverse individuals to learn, create, and collaborate through musical exploration. We provide lessons, workshops, and activities that build allyship and empower campers to find their voice.
This community is a safe space for campers to explore and affirm their identities, using positive and inclusive language across all genders, races, ethnicities, socio-economic levels, immigration statuses, abilities (physical, cognitive and mental), and more.
By uniting musical education with social justice programs, We Rock Charlotte teaches campers to stand up for themselves and each other as artists, activists, and allies.
We invite all girls and gender diverse individuals to make disruptive change and rock with us!
Our summer camp tuition provides full-day programming and instruction. Campers participate in instrument instruction, band practice, social justice workshops and arts programming *8am to 4pm Monday through Friday, along with a concert.
All campers are an important band member and must take part in our big concert!
Tuition covers camper bags filled with snacks, treats, craft supplies, and more! Due to health concerns and food allergy issues, campers are asked to provide their own lunch.
*specific camp times may vary.
Experience & Instruments
Don't know how to rock? That's okay!
Musical experience is not required. In fact, many of our campers learn to play an instrument for the first time at our summer camp.
We provide each camper with all the instruments they will need, but they are also welcome to bring their own instrument. Please note that We Rock Charlotte is not reponsible for any loss or damage to the camper's own instrument or gear.
Our 2023 Rock Camps are held at Myers Park Baptist Church. MPB are proud LGBTQ+ allies!
