Bellingham Girls Rock Camp is a day-camp for girls, ages 8 to 17. In one week, Rock Campers get a crash course in playing an instrument, writing songs, collaborating with a band, live stage performance, and do-it-yourself recording. Campers do not need to have any prior music experience, and instruments will be provided.
Bellingham Girls Rock Camp is a proud member of the Girls Rock Camp Alliance (GRCA). We are part of an INTERNATIONAL movement of music and empowerment camps for girls and queer youth. There are rock camps all over the US, Canada, South America, Europe, a rock camp in Mozambique, Japan, and many more starting up every year! To view the list of all GRCA member camps, visit the GRCA website.
BGRC is governed by a Board of Directors made up of experienced professionals and emergent leaders from the Bellingham community!
