“Rock camp was my son’s favorite camp last summer. It was a great way to try out playing with other people and seeing if you might want to be in a band someday. I was amazed how well the kids gelled by the end of the week. They were able to play a few songs together and sounded really good.” –Debbie (2013 parent)
ALTERNATIVE ROCK CAMP
summer 2019 dates:
July 29-August 2
Camps are 9 AM – 3 PM Monday – Friday, for kids 10-17.
Camp at Rock Academy is a fun, hands-on experience in creating a real rock band. We use alternative rock, punk, indie and grunge songs of the last 30 years as our curriculum. We rehearse as a band for one week then perform a show for family and friends.
Instrumentalists should have at least 1-2 years of playing experience and/or a current private instructor. Prior to camp, they should be at the level of playing along to simple rock songs. Guitarists should have some experience with open chord and/or power chord names and locations. Keyboardists should have some experience building major and minor chords. There is an expectation that campers are serious about rehearsing complete songs and building a setlist for the Friday show.
