Girls Rock!

Heather Rampton grew up playing the drums. Kids would tease her about being a girl in a rock band. So when she became a teacher and heard about the chance to open a Vegas band camp for girls, she jumped at it. She now runs Girls Rock Vegas, a summer camp where girls can strap on a guitar or go wild on the drums. Their bands include "Zombie Unicorns" and "Shredding Skittles." Heather and some of her young bandmates talk about writing songs, and why rock-n-roll really is a girl's world.
