History

The GRCA was founded at the initiative of Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls in Portland, Oregon in 2007. As the first rock camp, Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls became a source of inspiration for other initiatives around the world. In the spirit of wanting to create a network for all these initiatives, Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls invited organizers from the other girls rock camps in existence at the time to a conference in Portland. Seven camps were represented at the conference including 5 U.S. based camps and 2 European Camps.
