“The past year has been difficult for everybody… If you’ve ever played an instrument, been in a band, been to a concert, or you’re just an avid rock ‘n’ roll fan, you’ll escape into the fantasy and have some well-deserved fun.”

– Chuck Foster, Film Threat

About the film:

Rock Camp: The Movie is a backstage pass to Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp where lucky campers get to meet, learn from, and play with rock legends like Roger Daltry, Alice Cooper, Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Nancy Wilson, Joe Perry, Jeff Beck, Slash, and countless others.

Since 1996, music producer and camp founder David Fishof has connected these super fans with their heroes. This new documentary follows the journeys of four campers who overcome challenges and live out their dreams through music.
