Eh?  Women are still seriously under-represented as composers, so it makes perfect sense to me.  And sleep away summer camp programs are frequently separated by gender.  That's hardly something new.  This sounds like a great opportunity for some of our younger site visitors who are prepping portfolios for college admissions. 

We all post information about concerts, books, recordings, competitions, and workshops here, so that people can explore them if they are interested.  It doesn't imply affiliation or personal profit.  I'm not affiliated with this camp. 

If no one here shared information, what would be the point?  It's the internet.  That's what it's for.
