We are excited to announce that we are now offering a year round practice space for returning Summer Camp and GRASP participants up to 20 years old! This space will create an opportunity for campers to stay in their summer camp and after school program bands year round, create new bands with friends, or continue to freely experiment with and practice different instruments. Our practice space will be equipped with full drum, keyboard, guitar, & bass set ups as well as a PA.
Utilizing our practice space calendar, campers will choose times and dates that work for them and jam out! Our practice space will be hosted by a skilled BAGRC volunteer or staff member available for technical assistance and general support as needed. Please take a look below for more details.
