All programming is facilitated by female-identified musicians, artists, teachers, counselors and community leaders. No prior musical experience is necessary and tuition is sliding scale.

AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
Girls Rock Camp Toronto launched our first after school program in early 2015. We currently have no after school programs running, but sign up for our newsletter to stay on top of future developments.
Tuition for all GRCT programs, is sliding scale: $0-400. We prefer to give our participants the space to decide what amount works best for their budget.
Girls Rock Camp Toronto operates with very limited resources, and we rely heavily on donations and support from the community to sustain our programs. We ask those who can afford to pay full price to do so. That being said, we do realize that not everyone can afford our suggested fees, so we use a sliding scale that includes a range of tuition amounts. Please consider your family income, resources, and dependents in the household when determining your tuition amount. This process is honour-based and confidential. We do not require any supporting documentation for consideration, so we expect you to be honest in your assessment and statement of financial need.
ROCKER SELECTION & NOTIFICATION
Youth between the ages of 8-16 by the start of camp may apply. Participants are selected by a committee seeking to establish a balanced and diverse camp population in relation to instrument, age, previous musical experience, economic status, geography and community. We anticipate receiving more applications than spots available, meaning we may not be able to accept every person who applies. Additional information about camp will be sent with acceptance letters.
Campers choose which instrument to learn: guitar, bass guitar, drums, or keyboards. Please indicate first and second choice of instrument on the application. Due to the need to acquire gear in advance, you cannot change your selection after you send in your application, and you cannot change instruments during the program.
Instruments will be provided, but if you have your own guitar or bass, you may bring it. Please note that Girls Rock Camp Toronto does not accept liability for personal instruments.
If you need to cancel, please notify the office right away. If you must cancel up to 3 weeks prior to a camp’s start date, we will attempt to fill your space from the waitlist. If the spot is filled, a service fee of $75 will be deducted from the refund amount. If you must cancel within 3 weeks of a camp's start date, you will not receive a refund.
In the event of medical emergency, credit for a future session may be available. Please note that absolutely no refunds will be issued after the start of the program.
