Mission

Bellingham Girls Rock Camp (BGRC) creates fun and inclusive spaces for girls and queer youth. We encourage self-empowerment through music and anti-racist action, working together toward collective liberation.

BGRC is governed by a Board of Directors made up of experienced professionals and emergent leaders from the Bellingham community!

 

​We are a proud member of the Girls Rock Camp Alliance (GRCA), and part of an INTERNATIONAL movement of music and empowerment camps for girls and queer youth. There are rock camps all over the world!

To view the list of all GRCA member camps, visit the GRCA website.

Vision

Music is a powerful vehicle for personal and social change. We envision a world where music is recognized as both an individual and collaborative tool that illuminates the path to accessible community-based systems rooted in love, transformation, accountability, forgiveness, and healing. Youth leadership is encouraged and supported, and our differences are celebrated and acknowledged as strengths, allowing us to work in solidarity to take collective action.

Statement of Diversity

Bellingham Girls Rock Camp values diversity of age, race, economic status, gender expression, size, physical ability, developmental ability, musical interests, learning styles, nationality, religion, thought, citizenship status, and sexual orientation. We promote respect and do not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia, or other discriminatory behavior or expression.

We gather on ancestral homelands of the Coast Salish Peoples who have lived in the Salish Sea basin throughout the San Juan Islands and the North Cascades watershed from time immemorial. Bellingham is located on the ancestral homelands of the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Indian Tribe.
