Carolina Youth Action Project's Rock Camp took place July 15-19 at the Palmetto Scholars Academy in North Charleston. The week-long camp provided leadership development workshops, focusing on topics such as gender, sexuality, anti-racism, self-defense, and media literacy.

Girls, trans youth, and gender nonconforming youth ages 9-18 learned to play instruments and formed bands to create an original song to perform in the ninth annual Rock Camp Showcase on Saturday.

Their performances will be held at Palmetto Scholars Academy, 7499 Dorchester Road in North Charleston. Doors open at noon for the 1 p.m. showcase. Admission ranges from $10-$20 and is free for those 17 and younger.
