From July 4-9, girls from throughout the Pine Ridge community participated in the first annual Girls Rock Summer Camp. Campers spent 4 days learning an instrument, forming bands, writing songs, participating in empowerment workshops, and having fun!
The goal of the Girls Rock Pine Ridge Camp was to provide unique programming to the girls via different workshops, including ones sponsored by Kaga: Create . These sessions presented life through a cultural perspective and worked to empower the girls to express themselves through music and song-writing. Campers formed bands and worked together to compose an original song, which they performed in a showcase open to the public at the end of the week.
The goal of Girls Rock Pine Ridge is to help girls build self-esteem and find their voices through unique programming that combines music education and performance, empowerment and social justice workshops, creative collaboration, positive role models, and leadership skill building. Kaga: Create is honored to have been part of this exciting week for local girls!
