It would send FOURTEEN girls to camp who might not otherwise be able to afford it,” says Emily Marks, Director of Girls Rock Camp Austin. “We have an extensive scholarship program and we believe strongly that girls should have equal opportunities regardless of background, ability or what’s in their parent’s bank account.”
Girls Rock Camp Austin (GRCA) provides a positive, all-female environment that offers musical instruction as well as a variety of workshops and performances. GRCA fosters leadership, community, social change, and life skills for girls of all means and abilities.
