Thank you for doing this camp and allowing scholarships, because without it I couldn’t have come here this week.

This has been a wonderful, empowering experience for my daughter.

Queen City Rock Camp (QCRC) is a week-long day camp for girls ages 8 to 18 in Springfield, Missouri. The mission of Queen City Rock Camp is to provide a safe and supportive environment where young women can work together to build self confidence through music.


Be A Sustainer

Queen City Rock Camp happens once a year, but our sustainers support camp all year long! For as low as five dollars a month, you can take an active role in covering camp expenses as they occur. Sustainers are listed on our website, and have access to exclusive sustainer communications, our Annual Report (new for 2016), and other goodies. 

Sustainer Tiers

Fund A Camper

Queen City Rock Camp does not turn anyone away for lack of funds, and a robust tuition assistance program is integral to our mission. At our first session in 2014, nine of our thirteen campers attended on full scholarships. In every session since then, half of our campers attended QCRC for free, with another 25% receiving partial tuition assistance. 

When you sponsor a camper scholarship, your money goes toward general camp expenses (facility rental; food and supplies) that would otherwise come from QCRC tuition payments. In return, you receive a certificate with your sponsored camper’s name and instrument, two tickets to our showcase so you can see your sponsored camper rock out, and a mention in the sponsors list on our website and all camp materials through the next session’s fundraising cycle.

Sponsor QCRC

Showcase: $1000

You make the camper showcase happen! This donation goes toward venue fees, sound and lighting, video production, printed programs, and refreshments at the grand finale of Queen City Rock Camp, where camper bands perform in front of a real live audience and show off what they learned during camp week.

You get: two showcase tickets, one QCRC T-shirt, special thanks in the showcase program and onstage during the performance, and a mention on the front page of the QCRC website and the Sponsors page in the camp guidebook. 

Camp T-Shirts: $500

No merch table is complete without T-shirts. Your contribution offsets the cost of printing official Queen City Rock Camp T-shirts for all campers and volunteers, so they can keep rocking out in style after camp ends.

You get: two showcase tickets, one QCRC T-shirt, and a mention on the front page of the QCRC website and the Sponsors page in the camp guidebook. 

 

Camp Gear: $400

The majority of QCRC campers do not own a musical instrument. You can help QCRC’s permanent gear library grow… and keep our campers rocking all year long. We offer an instrument lending program to our campers, so they can keep building their skills in the off season. Your gear sponsorship will allow us to purchase a drum kit, PA with microphones, electric guitar/bass with amp, or keyboard with amp.

You get: two showcase tickets, and a mention on the front page of the QCRC website and the Sponsors page in the camp guidebook.

Other Donation Values

Queen City Rock Camp accepts donations of any amount! Whatever sum you are able to donate, you’ll know that your contribution gives girls the skills to express themselves in creative, constructive ways.

You get: QCRC buttons and various other schwag.
