Choose Specialty

Your child's journey begins by choosing a specialty. This is the first step in building their own perfect adventure.

Unleash your inner rock star! Industry professionals help you learn your favorite songs and teach you how to write your own original music. Get exclusive access to our state-of-the-art recording studios and receive a professional CD recording of you performing. Pali has a variety of instruments available to use (guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, ukulele, tambourine, hand drums and more), or you are welcome to bring your own. Here’s what to expect during your week:

An essential aspect of the Rockstar experience is learning how to make music with other people. Campers collaborate with each other and with their instructors to form small bands and performing groups. These small groups then come together to plan a song list for a full-length feature concert - the Rockstar Showcase - which the rest of camp comes to hear and enjoy. Every camper is involved in at least one of the songs in the concert and will get authentic performance experience. All of Pali will be cheering you on and going totally crazy - we guarantee you will leave camp feeling like a real rock star!


What Parents are Saying

“I think this is his 4th year and every year is a fantastic experience for him. He cried when he left! He got to play a Van Halen guitar solo in front of 300 Cheering kids wearing sparkly nail polish. What could be better?”

What Campers are Saying

“When I got Rockstar, I felt so accepted. These were my people. No one ever judged me. They just cheered me on and they became my friends, even though it felt like they were more of family.”“I'm in Rock Star and I loved performing my song in front of everyone. Everyone in my cabin, especially Annie, started cheering for me and it felt like the best day of my life. I felt like a real Rock Star.”“Awesome. I saw old friends and made new ones. Everyone is so nice and you can be free here. Rockstar is awesome and you get to show your talent.”“I especially love my specialty Rock Star. I made up a song with my friend. It was called Overrated. A counselor helped us with the song. We had lots of fun together, The performance was one of my favorite days.”
