ABOUT SUMMER ROCK CAMP
Rockers spend 2 weeks working in a hands-on environment, learning real performance and recording techniques, and the joys and complexities of being in a rock band. Campers will enjoy forming a band with peers, learning new songs from their favorite bands, improving their skills, and developing their band’s identity and logo all the while working with some of the top professional working musicians of Santa Fe. This access to established music professionals, who will share their experience and knowledge, will help young musicians understand some of the options open to them in the music industry.
During Summer Rock Camp, some of the activities rockers will experience are:
Recording a CD at professional audio recording facilities including Kitchen Sink Studios and Frogville Records
Visiting 98.1 Radio Free Santa Fe for an on-air interview (and having a song from their CD played to promote the concert finale!)
Performing in a live concert at an all ages venue at Tumbleroot
Enjoy Pizza and Ice Cream Fridays (pizzas sponsored by Upper Crust Pizza)
Receive a concert poster and VIP concert badge printed by Image Ratio
Rockers (and parents) will also enjoy digital downloads of recorded albums and online viewing and downloads of all photos taken throughout camp. The concert will be video recorded and photographed as well.
Camp sessions are 2 weeks long, 4 hours a day, Monday through Friday with a concert finale on the second Saturday. Rockers will be placed in either a morning session (9:00am to 1:00pm) or an afternoon session (2:00pm to 6:00pm). In an effort to place students in the best band for them to enjoy the best camp experience possible, we are unable to take requests for morning or afternoon sessions. However, we generally place younger participants in morning bands.
Camp Tuition is $600.00 + Tax
