Who We Are

Who We Are

We are a community of organizers, instructors, musicians, artists and talented volunteers who came together in 2009 to plan Vancouver’s first ever Girls Rock Camp – an action inspired by Portland’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls which began in 2001, and an action we felt was crucial to promoting change in both the music industry and the lives of young women.

Girls Rock Camp Vancouver is a registered non-profit organization in British Columbia, Canada. The collective is entirely volunteer run and operates and makes decisions using a consensus based model.

We’ve hosted 7 Summer Camps, 210 campers, 56 new youth bands, 350 volunteers, 35 local lunch time bands, over 3000 showcase attendees, and endless bouts of laughter and juice boxes during our existence.
