"I created Rock N' Roll Fantasy Camp for anyone that ever dreamed of rock n' roll stardom," says David Fishof, Founder and Executive Producer. "Our goal is to help campers with all levels of musicianship develop stronger skills, fulfill their rock n' roll dream and change their lives in the process."

"It's just great to see people gaining a lot of knowledge about our business that has been incredible to me in my life," states rock legend and camp counselor Roger Daltrey.

Now in its fifth season, Rock N' Roll Fantasy Camp brings together REAL rock stars to teach REAL people how to be the musical superstar. For 5 days and nights, the music superstars teach campers for more than 10 hours a day. The grand finale is a battle of the bands performed on stage at the legendary House of Blues on the Sunset Strip.
