WHAT IS Amplify Sleep Away Rock Camp? Amplify Sleep Away Rock Camp is an intensive one-week overnight program offered to girls ages 10-17 years old and is held at Ojai Valley Boarding School in Ojai, CA. Here girls of all skill levels have the opportunity to learn guitar, bass, drums, vocals, keys or other instruments. Girls will also form a band, write an original song, and perform at the Final Showcase for friends, families, and fans! In addition to all this, girls will have the opportunity to meet other girls and female musicians and mentors, as well as participate in enrichment activities such as workshops on media literacy or screen-printing, high ropes course, Dj-skills, Zine making and more. GRSB! welcomes campers that identify as female, trans, and gender-nonconforming. LESSONS Participants choose one instrument to focus on for the week–drums, bass, guitar, vocals, keyboards, or DJ. All instruction takes place in small group lessons and is led by experienced and enthusiastic female musicians. BAND PRACTICE The bands have band practice every day. During band practice, band members work together to write a song and practice playing as an ensemble. Band coaches help bands with the writing process, facilitate the rehearsals, and answer questions as necessary. Band counselors help guide campers and smooth out any bumps along the way. WORKSHOPS Throughout the week, workshops are held on a variety of interesting, helpful, and awesome topics! Some workshops include: Songwriting, Rock 'n' Roll Herstory, Screen Printing & Band Art, Image & Identity, Performance Anxiety & Body Confidence, Media Literacy, Self-Defense, Zine-Making, Beat Boxing, DIY recording, Alternate Instruments, DIY Band Posters and Button Art, High and low ropes courses and Punk Rock Yoga.
