Soon-to-be guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and vocal heroes will use professional-quality instruments and equipment to learn to croon, lay down killer bass lines, and discover David Lee Roth's pole-vaulting theatrics. Students will study the tricks of the wall-shaking trade with School of Rock's entire down-to-earth, guitar-shredding staff. Enrollment is rolling and based on seasons, with each season ending in a student-designed rockstravaganza of immortal proportions.
Wildwood aims to supply one underserved student from a Kansas City middle school with a scholarship for the residential summer camp. During five days, youth commune with nature, build self-esteem, and hone critical-thinking skills while hiking, swimming, and making crafts, and learn leadership and teamwork on Wildwood's adventure challenge and ropes courses. These hands-on activities help empower at-risk youth outside of the traditional classroom setting, teaching them respect for themselves, for others, and for nature.
