Please note that it is central to our values that Girls Rock Columbia is accessible to and inclusive of young people and their families of all backgrounds. Campers are not selected on a first-come, first-served basis; they are selected to create a balanced camp population in relation to instrument groups, age, race/ethnicity, economic status, geography/community, and lived experience. We receive more applications than we have camper spots, so we will not be able to accept everyone who applies. Campers who are not immediately accepted will be put on a waiting list and alerted if space becomes available. Please be aware that we make every effort to welcome back returning campers, but we cannot guarantee spots for returning campers.

Cancellation Policy:
If you need to cancel before May 6, 2017, we will keep a $25 application processing fee and refund the remainder of your payment. If you cancel before May 20, 2017, we offer a 50% refund of your payment. Please note that no refunds will be issued after May 20, 2017.
