This year’s We Rock Camp (formerly Girls Rock Camp), organized by local nonprofit Girls Rock Athens, took place July 29–Aug. 2. During the camp, musically inclined youth ages 9–15 got a crash course in writing, playing and performing while also attending workshops designed to spark independence and boost self-esteem. The week culminated in a public concert at Hendershot’s on Aug. 3. Flagpole photographer Whitley Carpenter was on hand to document the magic as it unfolded.
