The annual Girls Rock Carbondale camper showcase will be returning at the Hangar 9 in Carbondale, Illinois. 

The event is scheduled to kick off Saturday, Aug.12 from 7-9 p.m.

Girls will learn the basics of an instrument and what it's like being in a band through range of educational workshops.

Co-director of Girls Rock Carbondale, Jessica Lynn said they will also learn how fun it can be. 

“Girls Rock is my favorite time of year," Lynn said. "It’s a lot of work but it’s rewarded with the pure magic that happens when you’re in a space without judgement, that builds you up, and pushes against the preconceptions of your negative self-belief," 

This year’s camp will serve approximately 35 campers with 15-20 volunteers. 

To learn more, visit or call (618) 303-4165.
