Rock and Roll Summer Camps for Little Rockstars

School is (almost) out for summer! But the school of rock is in session. This summer, if your child wants to forego the usual camp experience in favor of a chance to see what it is like to feel the limelight, then consider signing them up for a week (or an entire summer) packed with opportunities to perform some old fashioned rock and roll. Rock and roll camps give kids an opportunity to learn music, try their hand at different instruments, and even perform on stage for friends and family! Who needs swim lessons and hiking when you can learn how to shred?!

And be sure to browse our Camp Directory, for even more ideas- like art camp for the artists in your family!
