Girls rock again this summer

It’s that time again. Time to register your daughters for Minnesota’s first rock camp for girls only.

The Girls Rock N Roll Retreat was founded by Minnesota rockers Jenny Case and Amy VanPatten. It’s now in its fourth summer at the Perpich Center For Arts Education in Golden Valley.

Case and VanPatten see a problem with the way women and girls are treated by the music industry. Here’s their vision:

…to help change the stereotypes of women in the music industry and in society in general. To help girls, at an early age, increase their self-confidence, take pride in work well done, ask for what they want, and gain tools that will help them to achieve their dreams.

Check out this story I did on the camp.
