WHAT YOUR CAMPER NEEDS TO PARTICIPATE AT VIRTUAL GRRR:
- Reliable internet access
- Access to a laptop or desktop computer that uses the Google Chrome browser and has access to Zoom. While a tablet (iPad, Chromebook) can be used, the applications we'll be using don't run as smoothly tablets and your camper may get frustrated. We are happy to loan out a laptop for your camper to use during camp!
- Excitement to interactively engage in music technology, connect with their community, write original songs and connect with inspiring role models!
Don’t have internet access or a laptop? We have solutions for you including laptops that your camper can use during camp. Let’s work together to get your camper the virtual experience they want and deserve!
Frequently Asked Questions
Who can come to camp?
Any girl, trans or nonbinary youth, ages 9-16 (13-18 at our teen week) is welcome at camp! No prior musical experience is necessary.
How much is camp tuition?
The actual cost to the organization for each camper is $300, while the full tuition rate for virtual camp is set at a sliding scale between $10-$150. We utilize the sliding scale model for tuition to make camp accessible to as many girls, trans and nonbinary youth who wish to attend as possible. In the sliding scale model, you determine your tuition based on your income, with the help of our guidelines.
Do you provide instruments for virtual camp?
In order to best serve our campers in a virtual camp, we will not be teaching physical instruments as per usual (guitar, bass, drums, keyboards). Instead, we’ll be engaging in daily workshops on how to play virtual instruments, write, record, produce and mix songs using music technology. We’re excited to show campers this tool so they can learn more behind-the scenes-technology, especially since only 5% of all sound engineers and producers identify as women.
Do you provide laptops for virtual camp?
Yes! Computers and laptops are highly recommended to use during GRRR: Studio Edition. We have laptops that we are happy to provide to your camper to use during camp week. Just make a note on your registration form!
What will campers do at virtual camp?
Campers will be using the online platform Soundtrap to create music and collaborate with their bandmates to write awesome songs! Additionally, there will be workshops, guest performers and a big Friday night showcase!
How will you ensure my camper’s safety in the online setting?
As per usual, all of our teachers and staff will undergo background checks to ensure your campers safety. And, campers will never be in a video chat alone with one adult. There will always be at least one other camper and/or teacher. We’ll be using privacy settings of our video chatting platforms to ensure that only our campers and teachers can enter the video calls. We also take cyber bullying seriously and will create guidelines with the campers each week so they know how to show and act with respect on our online platforms.
Do you accept beginners at your camp?
Yes, we do accept all levels of players, beginners-advanced!
