ROCK CAMP FOR GIRLS 2014 - STILL A FEW SPOTS LEFT
We still have a few spots open in both Session 1 and Session 2 of Rock Camp for Girls, so get your applications in! Campers do
not need to have any previous musical experience -- just an interest and a desire to learn. We provide all gear and instruction.

Session 1, for girls aged 13 to 17, runs August 11-15
Session 2, for girls aged 10 to 14, runs August 18-22

You can
apply online here or pick up a paper application form, available at Maar's Music (360 George St. N.), Bud's Music
Centre (296 Aylmer St.), The Spill Coffee Bar (414 George St. N.), and Sadleir House (751 George St. N.).

The full cost of camp is $225, which covers all musical equipment and other materials. If the cost is more than you can afford, talk
to us. The City of Peterborough Recreation Department has a subsidy which can be used for by qualifying city residents for
registration at RC4G. Other sources of support may also be available.

years. But to keep these great programs going, we need help. Whether it's attending our monthly steering committee meetings or
coming out a couple times a year to help with fundraising events, there's a place for you at RC4G. Check out the list of volunteer
opportunities below, and then
drop us a line to discuss how you can help keep the Rock Camp experience alive! Or drop by our
Volunteer Orientation Session at Sadleir House on Sunday, June 22, between 1 and 4pm.
