Local would-be rock stars are invited to participate in Youth Rock Camp Moab, which will be held Tuesday, April 11 through Friday, April 14 at the Grand County Middle School and the Moab Arts and Recreation Center. The camp is a volunteer-run rock and roll camp for young people ages 8 to 17 and is scheduled to coincide with the Grand County School District’s spring break period.

Camp sessions will be held each day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. During each session, camp participants will form bands, learn how to play an instrument — guitar, bass, keyboards, drums, or vocals — compose an original song and perform live at a local venue, Youth Rock Camp organizers said in a news release.

Camp participants will be “encouraged to explore self-expression and creative outlets through music,” organizers said. Participants will work with a variety of local musicians and artists, who will mentor them during the process through one-one-one and group instruction, workshops, team-building exercises, and other activities. The camp culminates in the live performance, which will take place at the Moab Arts and Recreation Center stage room on April 14 at 7 p.m. The public is invited to attend the performance.

“This four-day intensive camp is a must for any local young person who is ready to rock,” organizers said.

Parents can register a child or children for Youth Rock Camp Moab online at: kzmu.org/rockcamp. The application can be completed online, or downloaded, completed and dropped in person at KZMU, 1734 Rocky Road. Instrument assignment is on a first-come, first-served basis based on application date, organizers said.

The deadline for applications is April 1. Camp tuition is $100 and includes lunches, snacks, instruments, instruction and workshop materials.
