In addition to our summer camp we also have ongoing programming.
We currently are partnered with Moberly Arts Centre and the City of Vancouver to hold an after school program for girls and non-binary children and youth. It’s just like our summer camp but it happens every Thursday at Moberly Arts and cultural center in South Vancouver. Participants learn the basics of music making, as well as attend workshops on merch making, recording, songwriting, and more. The last few weeks are reserved for band formation and the new rockers will create a song together and perform it on the last day.
We also have a drop in music program at the Urban Native Youth Association every Tuesday from 4pm-8pm. This program is open to indigenous youth of all genders ages 12-24. Youth are given instrument instruction as well as participate in open jams and workshops, including drum making, recording, and more.
Girls Rock Camp Radio is a fun new addition to our organization. Every 2nd Monday from 7pm-8pm you can tune in to Co-op Radio 100.5FM in Vancouver to hear local bands, interviews with musicians and interesting people, as well as profiles on other rock camps and current events.

We have hosted various workshops throughout the years, a past example being a Radio Show, an introduction to radio hosting with technical training by CJSF 90.1 FM at the SFU Campus.
In 2015 we spent the day participating in a workshop with the LGBTQ2S* Youth Housing, RainCity Housing.
In addition to our Summer Camp Session, we partner with community allies to help run programming throughout the year, including: Ladies Rock Camp, a rock camp held in a Women’s Prison and a Downtown East Side Rock Camp in partnership with RainCity Housing
