February camp is a smash success! Next up...Abbey Road!

Dear Rock Star,

We just concluded another amazing Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp! My sincerest thanks to Michael Anthony, Bret Michaels, Lita Ford, Dave Mason, Lemmy Kilmister, and the many other artists that jammed with campers and shared their time and stories with everybody at RRFC. Our counselors once again did an amazing job leading our camper bands! They came together to put on a kick-a** All Star jam at the opening and closing night concerts. I'm also pleased to announce that our Key Club auction raised thousands of dollars for the Red Cross, to go towards Haiti relief.

London Camp Updates:

Rumor has it the legendary Abbey Road Studios in London might be going up for sale!! Don't miss out on the chance to visit and record at Abbey Road Studios over Memorial Day weekend with Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp. The London camp will feature Jack Bruce of Cream, Nick Mason of Pink Floyd and many more amazing Rock stars. We only take our program to London once every two years, so don’t miss out! Click here for more info on our London program.

Alan White, legendary drummer from the band YES, will join us in London as a counselor. In addition to playing with the band YES for over 25 years, Alan played with John Lennon in the Plastic Ono Band, recording the legendary hit “Imagine,” “Instant Karma,” and others. At our London camp you will have the opportunity to record in studio 2 at Abbey Road – the same studio where Paul, John, George and Ringo recorded so many of their hits as The Beatles.

Don't Take Our Word For It...

Holy crap, RRFC was one of the most awesome experiences of my life! I cannot wait to come back. Jeff Foskett was an amazing counselor and I had more fun that I imagined. Thank you David, Courtney, Jeff and all the other counselors, as well as my band Wild Oates. It was a truly a pleasure being a camper! - Ryan L.

There are so many great memories with all of you – Performing for Dave Mason, Michael Anthony’s visit, The Gibson Showroom performance, Mark Farner’s awesome magic, and our kick-butt set at the Key Club. I hope all of you had as much fun as I did!!! - Geno O.

I just wanted to tell you what an AMAZING crowd there was in that room (at the Key Club). The musicians all felt the love and support on stage and rode the wave off of energy. And thank you to David Fishof for creating the greatest event of all! I Lived the Dream this week with rock stars! - Julie D.

What a wonderful experience. I'll definitely be back sometime. I'm also glad we could help out the Haiti cause through the guitar auction! -Peter W.

Wow...what a week! Thanks again for all your help and putting us with an awesome counselor! That was AMAZING stuff! You have another regular camper with me! - Ken W.

This past weekend, I attended Rock Camp...those 3 1/2 days were frankly, unbelievable. I have not had that much fun for at least 20 years .... I am very glad I made the decision to come. I will never forget it. - Kevin W.

Featured London counselor: Alan White

After a short stint with Ginger Baker's Airforce in 1968, featuring Ginger Baker and Steve Winwood, Alan was invited to play with John Lennon in the Plastic Ono Band and recorded the legendary hit "Imagine" along with "Instant Karma" and many others. He then recorded with George Harrison on the album "All Things Must Pass" and the hit song "My Sweet Lord." In 1972, while touring with Joe Cocker, he was asked to join the progressive rock band YES. Alan and YES gave each other three months to see if their styles were compatible and 27 years later Alan is still writing and playing with YES.
A Big THANK YOU to all of our sponsors for helping to make the February camp a huge success!!
