San Diego CALadies Rock San Diego (LRSD), a rock empowerment camp for women 18 and older returns to San Diego Friday, March 22 through Sunday, March 24 at A Reason to Survive (A.R.T.S.) in National City. At the three-day intensive program participants form a band, learn an instrument, write an original song and perform live in front of friends, family and the community in the Voodoo Room at House of Blues on Sunday, March 24.

This year, the girls camp will be held from Monday, July 22 through Friday, July 26 at A.R.T.S.

“We are so excited to bring back Ladies Rock San Diego for a second year! The first year was such a success that we’ve increased participants from 17 to 30 and even have participants coming from out of state to participate,” said Melissa Grove, founder and president of Ladies Rock San Diego and Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls San Diego. “We’re happy that we can provide a space that encourages women to step out of their comfort zones and express themselves through music, all while having fun and supporting the girls at Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls San Diego!”

During the powerful program participants attend empowerment assemblies and workshops covering a wide range of topics including guided meditation and self-defense. In addition, they engage in instrument instruction, jam sessions, a photoshoot with their band and wrap up the weekend rocking out live at the Voodoo Room.
