 » The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.

For the second year in a row this nonprofit Philadelphia-based organization is hosting a girls-only, week-long summer day camp for "junior rockers" between the ages of 9 and 17.

The camp will be held from August 4th to the 9th on the campus of Girard College in Philadelphia, and hopes to expand on the success of 2007, which saw girls converging to hone their instrumental prowess, learn how to write songs, form makeshift bands and perform a set at week's end. According to the organizers, last year the camp even "fostered a new band known as Oak Oak Okay, who have continued to perform around the city."

The event's director, Beth Warshaw-Duncan, credits the first camp as being "a tremendous success" with many of last year's participants returning for 2008. She also adds that "the Girls Rock Camp Alliance has 14 sister camps serving over 1500 girls this summer, and we're proud to be part of a movement that has clearly struck a chord."

While most of the girls participating last year were from the area around Philadelphia, the camp is open to girls from anywhere, and Girls Rock Philly also provided scholarships & partial financial assistance for half of last year's campers.

GRP is now accepting camper and volunteer applications for the 2008 summer camp session. For more information and to submit an application, visit the event's website or call 215-789-4879.
