Columbia Rock-n-Roll Camp Puts Girls in the Spotlight

Jul 25, 2017

With participants across the country and world, the Girls Rock Camp Alliance is made up of organizations that hold annual camps to empower girls through rock music. In each week-long day camp, kids are assigned a musical instrument: bass, electric guitar, drums, key board, or vocals. Many campers have never picked up a musical instrument before. Mollie Williamson is the founder and executive director of Girls Rock Columbia. This will be Williamson's last camp as she steps down as executive director to pursue her Master's degree out of state. Local musician Jessica Oliver will be taking over as the new leader of Girls Rock Columbia. South Carolina Public Radio's Laura Hunsberger has the story.
