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.
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.
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.
