Girls Rock Carbondale is now accepting camper applications for the 2017 session!Applications deadline is May 1.


Girls Rock Carbondale (GRC) is a  music camp where campers learn an instrument, form a band, write an original song, and perform a concert at a live music venue. It is a fun and safe space for campers entering grades 4 – 12 to develop an amazing sense of self esteem through the creative process of songwriting and being in a band. 


The GRC camp application is a two-step process. Applicants are required to fill out a digital camper application as well as a physical application called Express Yourself.


The application can be found on the website


The Express Yourself application has two parts. The first part is a short personal essay following one of the prompts provided on our website. The second part is a creative submission and can be any of the following: a short video, a creative writing piece, a visual art piece, or an audio recording.


Packets can be dropped off at CCA on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday between 11-2pm, or mailed to:

Submissions will be accepted until May 13.Campers are then selected by a committee based on application timeliness and completeness, instrument choice, age, experience, and if they’ve attended camp before. Capacity is volunteer-contingent and not all campers who apply may be admitted that session. Campers will be informed of their status by May 20.


















Carbondale Community Arts (CCA) is accepting nominations for the second annual Southern Illinois Arts Legacy Award. The Award is being presented by CCA to recognize individuals whose character and achievements exemplify a dedication to the arts and community in southern Illinois.

All current or past residents of the southern Illinois’ 26 southernmost counties, with the exception of current CCA board members and staff, are eligible. Posthumous nominees will also be considered.
