Girls Rock!DC Visits Mt Pleasant This Weekend

Girls Rock!DC, the rock and roll day camp for girls/grrrls, is having a recruitment party this Sunday in Mt Pleasant.

The open to the public event is an Instrument Show-n-Tell. You can also meet the organizers and some of the instructors. Play instruments (no experience necessary!). There will be live music and a bake sale. Girls Rock!DC is a non profit, so if you want to contribute some monetary support they won't turn you away. But the event this weekend is free. It's this Sunday, June 1, 2008 from 3pm till 7pm at La Casa. La Casa is in the heart of the Mt Pleasant commercial strip, at 3166 Mt Pleasant Street NW.

The actual camp will be held this August. Its for girls 8-18 years of age. Campers will get more than music instruction; camp activities and workshops will stress team building, self-empowerment, self-advocacy and leadership skills. Plus, the campers will get to play a showcase at the 9:30 Club. Bonus! If you know any young ones in the D-M-V area who fit the bill (no pun intended, j/k! pun intended!), bring them on down this Sunday. Should be fun.
