Music, it’s been said, has charms to soothe the savage breast.

That’s really just a fancy way of saying that beating the skins, shredding guitar riffs and belting out a vocal solo can relieve stress and do wonders for your mental health.

Winnipeg teens are invited to test the theory at the third annual Let It Out Summer Rock Camp, which takes place July 8 through Aug. 30. Deadline to register is June 29.

The camp, open to ages 13 to 17, are offering in four two-week session and held at Robert A. Steen Centre in Wolseley. It’s a collaboration between local indie band Waterfront Drive and the Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba.

Participants will spend their days learning the ins and outs of being in a rock band, while also having ample opportunity to learn about and talk about mental health. Teens do not have to have a mood disorder to register. Cost is $50 per two-week camp. Email rockcamp.mdam@gmail.com or phone 786-0987.
