Here's their description of the experience: "Girls Rock Charleston is a music arts camp serving girls from diverse backgrounds in Charleston county. The camp will use music as a platform to promote creative expression, self-confidence, acceptance, and community among young women and girls. Campers will have the opportunity to learn how to play musical instruments, write songs, perform, and promote music through various media in a positive, encouraging environment."
And here's a tumblr so that you can see what the week's been like: http://girlsrockcharleston.tumblr.com/
They have a showcase in downtown Charleston on Saturday afternoon--if you live around here, come out and see these girls perform!
Is it fair for me to say that I'm extra proud of them because several of the women who made this happen are former students, and even WGS alums?
