Girls Rock! DC Principles:

  • All Girls Rock! DC camp activities will promote and maintain the personal and emotional safety of all campers and staff regardless of socio-economic status, gender identity, sexual orientation or other individual identities.
  • Girl Rock! DC will function administratively as a non-profit, non-hierarchical, woman powered, volunteer organization that demonstrates and operates within the female empowerment and collaboration standards our camp seeks to promote in our campers.
