In Europe the development of Girls Rock Camps began in Sweden with Popkollo in 2003, followed by the UK (2007), Germany (Berlin, Munich) (2009), Austria (2011), Czech Republic (2011), Iceland and France (2012). Initiatives to start up Girls Rock Camps in Europe have began to grow rapidly: Denmark, Norway, Finland, Poland are all on their way to start up new camps. Communication and collaboration between these new initiatives and existing camps have been sporadic but fairly close, and for a long time coming the idea of a closer European network has been a hot topic and conversation piece at the GRCA Conferences.

In June 2012 organizers from Sweden, Germany, Austria, Norway, Iceland and France got together in Stockholm and found the European Committee, a sub-committee of the departement of Membership of the GRCA. The aim was to create a platform for collaboration, meetings and exchange for camp organizers in Europe, as a complement to the Annual Girls Rock Camp Alliance Conference, with the emphasis on supporting the growth of new camps in and around Europe. A handful of skype-meetings, online working parties and financial encouragement by public fundings later, the GRCA Europe Conference was born!
