Montreal, Canada
Job Type



Rock Camp Montreal is an organization that holds a week-long summer camp where campers discover and express their talents, and become leaders in creating their own cultural production through music. Musicians and community members support campers through instrument instruction, tech tutorials, band practice and skill-building workshops. At the week’s end, campers get the chance to show off their talents to friends, family, and community members at the Showcase Concert.


Rock Camp fosters the promotion of self-esteem, skill-building and critical thinking skills for girls, trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming youth through collaborative music composition and performance. Rock Camp supplements the music component with workshops based on feminist and anti-oppression frameworks that provide campers with a space for critical examination and personal empowerment.

The goal is for girls, trans, non-binary, and gender non-conforming youth to rock in all aspects of life!
