The fully interactive, participatory camp takes place in a non-competitive atmosphere that welcomes guitar players, bass players, vocalists, drummers and keyboard player at all skill levels ranging from beginner to advanced.

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp experience begins the moment of sign-up. After a skill level and musical preferences assessment, fantasy campers are placed in a band with other like-minded, similarly skilled musicians all ready to rock. Whatever their level of proficiency – from lead guitar to rhythm guitar to air guitar – abilities and confidence will grow during rehearsal under the constant guidance of rock star counselors.

These recognized musicians won’t simply coordinate your band, they’ll inspire in a series of intimate master classes on the camper’s chosen instrument, stage presence, and everything rock and roll, along with tales from the road. Our newest class, THE ROUNDTABLE, welcomes campers to bring their original song to work on with our incredibly talented and skilled rock star counselors. Campers will take part in Q&As with headliner and rock star counselors, parties, catering, road crew and more. Ultimately, attendees will practice, show-off skills in front of family and friends at camp, take photos, get memorabilia signed and then jam live, onstage, with Joe Perry of Aerosmith and Jason Bonham.
