"Guitars in your face....girls on the bass..." those are a couple of lines from the Girls Rock Grand Rapid's camp theme song that only scratch the surface of how insanely our campers have been rockin' at the Cook Arts Center this week! Girls Rock! Grand Rapids is modeled after both national and international chapters of women who seek to empower girls ages 8-16 through music. What does that mean? It means that campers will be encouraged, learn "do it yourself" skills and have their self-esteem bolstered through one entire week of learning to play an instrument of their choice in a band setting. After a week of intensive instrument training, band practice and photo shoots (yes, photo shoots!) they'll be playing their grand finale rock concert at Wealthy Theater and recording their bands' music on Sunday.
Come out and support our girls at Wealthy Theater on Saturday, August 24th at 3:00 P.M. There is no entrance fee but a donation ranging from $2-$100 is suggested. We're so thankful for all of our incredible sponsors, volunteers, and program staff who've made this camp a possibility for Grand Rapid's girls this summer. Hope to see you on Saturday! :)
