Now in its 14th year (Yep, you read that right, XIV!), Rock & Roll Camp has become a key part of the creative life of young people in our region. We love seeing teens come to their first camp and we burst with pride when we see the musical and artistic growth and success of those teens who have attended each year. And, we're not gonna lie, we get teary eyed seeing the young adults who we have to say goodbye to when they age out of the program. So many of them have come back as volunteers and we're proud to have them. 

A week of instruction for teens of any and all levels of experience with music culminates with a Showcase Concert on Main Street Pendleton Friday evening. Teens from across the northwest (and beyond!) welcome. Sign up at 

If you know a teen 13-18 who would enjoy hanging out with top-flight musicians, rock journalists and other music professionals for a week, let them know about Rock & Roll Camp! It's FREE, thanks to the amazing support of a long list of donors, including Wildhorse Foundation and Grocery Outlet.
