Depending on ability level, development of original material is strongly encouraged. Each weekly session culminates in a public performance and the recording of a CD. This camp is split into two age categories: for kids 7 - 9 and 9+.

"I just wanted to send a note to let you know how much my son enjoyed Rock Band Camp. He's VERY sensitive and usually grossly introverted and if I didn't sign him up for something he'd be perfectly happy at home by himself with his Xbox all summer. But I signed him up anyway with much protest. This is the first camp he's attended where he came home THRILLED with his day EVERY day. He enjoyed all of the teachers, learned TONS and came out of his shell quite a bit. As a mother, that is so fantastic to see. I hope the Back to Rock team knows how much they influence these young musicians and how important their role is to them. Please thank them all! I look forward to sending him again!"
"This was such a wonderful experience for my daughter. She was definitely frustrated after the first day since she was playing with more experienced members; but, she was appropriately challenged and rose to that challenge. She wants to come back for another week, wants to take lessons and participate in the band program. I really feel that she has "found her people". I was very impressed with the enthusiasm and talent of the instructors which showed with spirited performances by all of the bands. Thank you for taking the time to really get to know my daughter and fostering her talent."
