This isn't just a camp; it's a chance to live your rock 'n' roll dreams, to play the music that has inspired generations, and to stand where legends have stood.

The camp is open to instrumentalists and vocalists of all skill and experience levels. A few weeks prior to camp, you will have a call with the Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp musical director to help learn about you to place you in a band that is perfect for you. The Rock Camp will send you a song list to start rehearsing, and before camp begins you will be connected with your rock star counselor and bandmates to start further preparing for your camp experience. You will not only come out of this camp a better musician, but will have one of the most amazing life experiences and leave with friends for a lifetime.
