Bellingham’s Summer Music Camp is a new program designed for rising students in grades 5 through 8 who would like to explore music in a fun, engaging and relaxed summer atmosphere. Students can select from different interest areas: singing or band instruments and all students will participate in music games, leadership and group activities. No music experience is necessary! Bellingham music staff will be teaching and high school students will help facilitate the activities. Our goal is to refresh and reenergize your music-loving student!
