Welcome aboard Rock Camp Express:
An online summer camp experience brought to you by Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls Los Angeles!

We’re committed to providing a safe and supportive space for girls and gender-expansive youth – even if it’s online! Together we’ll dive into creativity, connect with each other, sharpen our social justice tools, and have FUN!

This is the Music Video Program application page.


Please read all camp details carefully.

Regarding COVID-19: Camper, staff, and community safety is a top priority. We will be following guidelines from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, and the CDC. Guidelines may change. It is too soon to know now what COVID-19 safety protocols will be required in June.

What we do know now is that full vaccination is required of all volunteers. And we are strongly recommending that all campers eligible for the vaccination receive their final dose at least 2-weeks prior to starting camp. Unvaccinated campers may be required to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test.

We will provide updates as we get closer to the start of camp.

About the Music Video Program

In the Music Video Program (MVP) campers direct, shoot, and edit a music video! Campers work with each other in a crew alongside inspiring filmmakers to bring their ideas to the big screen! No prior filmmaking experience required!

In one week, campers will direct a music video for a local musician, learn how to operate professional cameras, edit with cutting-edge software, and finally screen their video in front of a live audience at camp!

Each crew will have their very own camera mentor and editing mentor, making sure that each camper has plenty of one-on-one time with the gear, and ensuring that there’s always someone close by to answer questions and teach tips and tricks! Every MVP camper will have an opportunity to direct, shoot, and edit.

Crews will be formed by RCGLA staff before camp starts.

Girls and gender expansive youth between the ages of 12-17 are encouraged to apply. All equipment provided! Bring your awesome!

Campers will be assigned an arrival time, pickup time, and drop-off/pickup location.

Arrival times will range from 9am – 9:30am. Camp activities start at 10am.

Pick up times will range from 3:00 – 3:15. Camp activities end at 3:00pm.

We are not providing extended hours child supervision. Please drop off and pick up your child at the assigned times.

Campers must bring their own lunch and snack each day. We do not provide lunch or snacks for campers. Bring your own water to help stay hydrated throughout the day.

We do not provide transportation. For COVID-19 safety, please do not carpool with other campers unless you are in the same cohort.

Tuition & Tuition Assistance

Tuition is $450 per camper for the week of camp. Tuition assistance is available to those in need and who live in the Los Angeles area. We offer tuition on a sliding scale so that youth from all financial backgrounds have the opportunity to attend camp. Tuition is not considered a donation.

Tuition assistance is available on a need basis to campers who live in the Los Angeles area.

For those requesting assistance, tuition is based on a sliding scale between $25 – $450. Tuition assistance typically goes to families that are low-income, have many dependents, or are facing other financial hardships. We do not grant tuition assistance because of a camper being enrolled in multiple summer camps, private school tuition or other situations involving elective activities.

We realize that families have different abilities to pay. It’s part of our mission to make summer camp accessible regardless of financial situation. Applying for tuition assistance will neither increase nor decrease the chances of acceptance.

The tuition assistance application is within the main application. The link to the main application is at the bottom of this page.

In the application you will be asked the following questions:

  • How much can you pay towards your child’s tuition?
  • What is your household annual income?
  • How many dependents are in your family?
  • Are you a single income family?
  • Does the child receive child support?
  • Does the child receive free or reduced-priced meals?
  • Did you lose work because of COVID-19?

Crew Formation

Crews will be formed by RCGLA staff before camp starts, and campers will find out who is in their crew on Day 1 of camp.

Our Volunteers

Our volunteer mentors are thoughtfully selected and screened through an online application, interview, and LiveScan fingerprinting. They are an incredible bunch and we hope you get to know some of them this summer.

We are seeking fully vaccinated volunteers for our 2022 Summer Camp.
