WHAT IS ROCK CAMP?
Since 2009, Rock Camp has organized music camps, lessons and events for children and young people. The idea of Rock Camp came from how to bring new experiences and content into young people’s lives through music. The feedback we have received has been staggering. Many have made new friendships and networks have been created through us, and young people have learned that they can be accepted exactly as they are.
It is important to teach young people to value, to respect and to consider other people. Playing in the same band with people of different ages and backgrounds increases tolerance and sense of community: music is a unifying factor, no matter what the attributes of the enthusiast are. In a group, those who easily gets pulled aside and even are a little quieter grow into an important part of the group’s dynamics and are encouraged.
With its activities, Rock Camp supports a drug-free and positive rock-spirited youth culture. In the lives of many young people, music plays a strong role, and we want to use it to combat mental illness and anxiety. The Rock Camp crew was awarded at the Long Live Suomirock Gala in 2019 for long-term work for young people.
The dream came true in September 2021, when Rock Camp got its first permanent location in the heart of Seinäjoki. This allows for a wide range of year-round activities.
We encourage young people to be proud of themselves despite the prevailing ideals of beauty. "Be yourself, be Rock, no matter what other people think of you." Attitude is the most important!
Welcome to our great team!
