Girls Rock Dublin 2019 Summer Camp & Gear Library Launch

Girls Rock Dublin are back for 2019 with their summer camp for 12-17 year old girls and non-binary folk running from June 25th – 29th 2019.

Over 5 days, 20 campers will learn an instrument, form a band, write a song and perform on stage with no previous musical experience required.

The camp will be delivered at Sound Training College and Temple Lane Studios in Dublin City Centre by an all woman team of volunteers who work as musicians and music professionals in the local independent industry.

Valuing diversity, GRD welcome and encourage applications from young people from socially underrepresented groups and 10 scholarships will be granted to applicants from Direct Provision and low income households.
