Due to an overwhelming number of applicants in 2017 we will be accepting campers based on a lottery system.
Applications are reviewed and must be complete (including camper portion and self expression piece) to be entered into the lottery for their age group. However several factors influence final decisions regarding camper placement. Those factors include: age, instrument, diversity and interest. When we assign instruments we’re making sure there is an even distribution of ages and instruments so that bands can be formed. Some ages and instrument choices are in greater demand than others. The most common reason we turn an applicant away is that there were too many applications from girls of the same age.
Instrument and Band Assignment: Campers will be assigned one instrument to focus on for the week and will find out what instrument they are playing when they arrive at camp Monday morning. Every day they will have a group lesson in that instrument, and play that instrument in their band. Applicants are asked to share their instrument preferences in the application. Their choices are: voice, guitar, bass, keys or drums. Not all campers will be assigned their first choice. Campers cannot change instruments once their instrument has been assigned. This year bands will be formed by camp staff and announced Monday morning at camp.
All instruments are provided. If a camper has their own guitar or bass, they may bring it. Rock n’ Roll Camp for OKC does not accept liability for personal instruments.
Lunch & Snacks: Campers must bring their own lunch and a snack each day. We do not provide lunch for campers. Re-usable water bottles are highly recommended to help stay hydrated throughout the day. Each day at lunchtime the campers and volunteers will be treated to a live performance! Past lunchtime bands and performers include The So Help Me's, Annie Oakley, Ali Harter, Kaitlin Butts, Camille Harp and Kate Dinsmore from Harumph!
Our Volunteers: Our volunteers are an awesome bunch of local business owners, artists, musicians, mothers, grandmothers and empowering women and we could not have camp without them! Our volunteer mentors are thoughtfully selected and screened through an online application, in-person or phone interview, and fingerprinting.
Non-Discrimination Policy: Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls OKC does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national and/or ethnic origin, age, citizenship, marital status, sexual orientation, mental or physical ability, or gender identity/expression in the administration of any of its educational programs, admissions policies, financial aid, and other Camp-related policies and programs, as well as volunteer and employment-related policies and activities.
