We welcome girls, transgender folks, and gender non-conforming folks 8-17 years of age. Prior musical experience is not required.

Accessibility is important to us at GR!C-U. We offer tuition for the workshops on a sliding scale, with full tuition for the week being $250. A limited number of scholarships are available. For more information please email us at

— Registration Opens Tuesday, April 23rd at noon — We will email a registration form to those on our email list as well as share it on our social media channels. As we are only in our second year, space is very limited for our summer camp. We expect camp to fill up within the first few days of registration. We'll have a waitlist for those who do not get a spot in case of cancellations.
