Over the past decade, PJ Olsson’s Rock Camp has inspired young musicians and the community. The program brings together professional artists, technical crew, sponsors, concert goers, and talented kids to growth through music and performance. We hope to see the Rock Camp continue to thrill and delight for many generations to come, but for 2018 we have decided to take a breath. We will not be hosting a 2018 session of Rock Camp, but plan to resume in 2019. We cannot thank enough all of the people and organization that make Rock Camp possible and sincerely hope that love and support will be there in the future.

Is Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen to difficult for a bunch of kids? There’s only one way to find out, chart it and take it for a test drive. Here’s a Facebook Live of the campers testing the song out. If we like it… we’ll start developing the song to perfection for the final concert.
There’s never a dull moment at camp. Check out what the campers have been up to:
Facebook Live on Day 4 of Rock Camp 2017. The tech crew has the main stage set up and roughly tuned in. Time to bring on of our bands on stage to tune in the monitor mix. First band on stage, first time being on stage for the band. The kids are off to a great start.
Our small community is very fortunate to have it’s own music store. Owned and operated by Bruce Rundman and crew, Good Times Music has a great inventory and can get anything you need if its not in the store. If you frequent Good Times Music, awesome! If you haven’t check it out lately, best get over there and take a look around. Let’s keep having our own music store, drop in on Bruce and crew and give him a little business!
We are playing around with Facebook Live this year. Our last video was too long and this one is too short. What’s great about Rock Camp is all the different types of music the kids pick to work on, typically spanning 40 years and many genera’s. The campers have plenty of time to test and try songs, but at the show grows closer it’s time to settle down and practice, practice, practice. The buy your tickets for the final concert coming on Saturday, August 5, 2017! Let’s give these kids a sell out show.
