As for the future of Rock Camp for Girls OC, Candace envisions a year-round program with a paid staff of women and girls and a permanent building. "I see a program that continues and becomes part of the culture of this community," she says. "Girls who were once campers coming back and volunteering, and women who were campers teaching their nieces, daughters and friends how to play an instrument. We want to create more opportunities for young girls to become leaders in their communities through putting together classes, shows or playing shows—and also by teaching what they have learned at camp."

For Hansen, this is about more than just mastering the instrument; it's using her skills to help the community. "I want to stay true to myself," she says. "And that means serving the community, meeting my own needs and playing drums. As long as I'm able to throw out a big net and get all those things from the universe, I'm happy."
