The 2014 session of Queen City Rock Camp ended on Friday, July 11th with amazing showcase at Randy Bacon Studio. Our thirteen campers rocked so hard. We’d like to give a huge thank you to everyone who attended camp, the amazing volunteers who taught the campers new skills, and all our sponsors!

QCRC will be back in 2015, and early registration for returning campers will go live as soon as we have a date and location set. If you’d like to be part of the development process for our next camp session, e-mail to get updates on our planning meetings.

Three Days to ROCK

Our Rock Campaign on Indiegogo is in its final three days! This is a flex funding campaign, so we get whatever funds we make, whether or not we reach our full goal. That means that every little bit helps!

Several girls have already applied for full camp scholarships. This campaign covers our expenses so we can send them, and many more, to QCRC for free! We’ve been reaching out specifically to young women who would not otherwise have opportunities to learn to play an instrument, so providing scholarships is a vital part of our camp mission.

If you’re able to donate, please do so before Monday night. More importantly, please share the Indiegogo link on your Facebook, Twitter, and anywhere else you hang out online. All of QCRC’s publicity to date has been grassroots and word-of-mouth. You can help us finish strong and bring the joy of rock ‘n’ roll to Springfield’s young women!
