GRC 2018

This year was our fifth annual! Twenty-four campers, ages 10-17, spent the week with us at Liberty High School in Bethlehem, PA. They learned how to play an instrument, formed a band, wrote an original song together, and then performed at a *real concert*– all in just six days! Our campers also attended workshops based on this year’s theme: RAISE YOUR VOICE. Our curriculum was focused on speaking up for yourself & others and claiming your space unapologetically.

Our program concluded with the showcase on Saturday July 28th at Diamond Theatre. “Raise Your Voice” featured seven bands each playing their original song in front of their family, friends, and future fans. The show was SO GOOD. The performances were fantastic and Kelsi finally got to be the MC!

We would like to thank all of our sponsors, our amazing volunteers (many took off an entire week of work to be with us), and each of the incredible kids who attended camp. You all help to make this possible! We love you and we are grateful.
