Rock Camp! is an intense six-day, five-night residency program that provides a fun and educational opportunity for high school students at any experience level to benefit from music education. Music education leads to the development of creative and critical problem-solving skills, higher self-esteem, and pride in accomplishment.

Students learn different aspects of music including performance, music business and music history, providing them with the understanding that music can be a viable career choice. Students choose to play one of five traditional rock instruments: guitar, drums, bass, keyboards, or voice.

ISU music faculty and professional musicians lead the program, with ISU music students assisting. Resident students pay $525 and commuters $300. Resident fee includes all buffet-style meals, on-campus housing, and classes.
