The goal of this program,is for your child to develop a better feel for how the pros play Rock! Campers will spend 2 hours each day rehearsing in their Performing Ensembles, where they will improve on their technique and get better at playing different styles of Rock. All of our Rock faculty are both performers and educators and they are dedicated to creating a non-competitive environment that is conducive to learning. The camp also provides a safe environment for our campers. Counselors escort the younger children throughout the day and are also on hand to help them in their activities. And don't forget to save the date - we end camp with a concert where every camper performs with their class!
