New Exciting Program for Experienced Musicans and Bands at RRFC

Dear Rockstar,

Cool things are happening at Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp that you don't want to miss out on! RRFC and American Express Vacations have teamed up to make it possible for our rockers to come to camp using their Gold Card Membership Awards points!

We are also premiering our RRFC Master's Program at the November camp. This program is designed for the seasoned musician and returning campers who want to take a more rigurous rock-camp route.

Check out all of the details below on both of these offerings and don't hesitate to contact Courtney at the RRFC office (888.762.2263) with any questions or help signing up!

So you wanna be a rock and roll star and you're already a seasoned musician? The Rock 'n Roll Fantasy Camp Master's Program can help propel your Rockstar journey even further. If you're a prior RRFC camper ready for the big time, or a semi-professional musician looking to take your music game to the next level, this bonus camp experience is for you.

Here's how it works. On the first day of the Hollywood camp, we'll hold Master's Program auditions for new campers who want to take the more rigorous rock-camp route. Based on your performance you'll be placed in a band of musicians with comparable, compatible talent and a Rockstar camp counselor who will serve you best. (If you can't make it to the audition, send us a video showing you doing your rock thing.). Returning campers, take note: there's no need to audition -- we'll place you according to your past performance (but you are welcome to send us a new tape if you feel you’ve grown significantly since camp)!

Taking the reins on this intense (and intensely rewarding) program is real-life Rockstar Kip Winger. Kip is a Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camper favorite. Kip says prospective RRFC Master's Program musicians "should be able to play anything thrown at them by the counselors." He adds that "it's not so important to know a million songs; just be able to learn on the spot and keep up."

If you'd like to audition for the Master's Program, just let us know when you sign up for the November camp. Also let us know if you're going to be coming to auditions or if you'll be sending us a clip of your performance. We'll take it from there.

And remember this: Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp is exactly what the name says it is. It's your rock and roll fantasy; we're just here to help you live it. All levels are welcome: newbies who've never been on stage, or pros who want to get even better. The camp is tailor-made to each camper's needs. Call us and we'll prove it.

Still not sure? Don't listen to me, listen to Mr. Winger.

"If you've never done camp, you should. I've met so many great people who have become friends. Even many of my heroes," Kip told us. "It has literally changed my life for the better!"

So there you have it. No excuses.
