We would like to thank all of the volunteers and campers for making the first ever Rock Camp 4 Girls Appalachia a HUGE success. It was such a huge success in fact, that we made the front page of the Charleston Gazette! Way to go girls! (You can read the full story here: http://www.wvgazette.com/News/201006251065)
Here's what camper Trystan Lively said about her experience at camp:
Rock Camp 4 Girls Appalachia was a great experience. You get to pick an instrument to learn, form bands, and even write a whole song in only a week. Not only do you get to do all that, but you get to play your band's song that you helped write in front of your family and friends on stage at the end of the week! It is a really empowering experience, and while you’re having fun, you’re working on your self confidence. You might not notice how much self confidence you actually get from it, but by the end of the week you’re gonna be rockin’ out with your friends on stage. If that’s not self confidence then I don’t know what is! Now we don’t just sit around and play our instruments the whole time, we still have other things to do. Sometimes we go outside and do crazy fun things, and sometimes we have little workshops that we do. We also have a reflection everyday, and the rest of the time we just chill and maybe go practice our instrument a little, or even jam on another instrument.
Ok so if you have read this and it doesn’t sound awesome yet, then I think you should read it again because Rock Camp 4 Girls Appalachia is one of the most awesome things out there for girls who want to rock hard and jam out.
