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?!
Bach to Rock—Wayne
Offering camps seasonally, this camp experience not only is guaranteed to help your little one rock out, but to do so in the style they love.

Camps are available for kids ages 4 and up, and can be week-long or just day camps depending on the schedule that works best for you.
