What Does a Week at DJ
Camp Look Like?
Over the course of the

Serato DJ decks and laptop bundles, as well as other professional DJ equipment.
Campers will practice
beat matching, song dropping, and using high-tech virtual turntables, too. At
the end of the week, participants in the DJ camp specialty will perform a set
at the Pali Dance for their peers to enjoy. Campers also get the chance to be
the star of the show when they show off the skills that they learned throughout

The Benefits of DJ

child attends, they are sure to gain valuable experience performing in front of
their peers. Many kids come to camp having some stage fright or performance
anxiety, however, Pali’s encouraging environment emphasizes fun above all else,
so kids can relax and be themselves in front of their peers and counselors.
Music summer camps also
give kids exposure to the different areas of the music industry. With
professional DJs as their mentors, campers in this specialty will leave camp
feeling inspired to keep mixing tracks and expanding their set list long after
the camp session ends.

that their child returned home glowing from DJ camp at Pali Adventures —“My son returned home from the
first session of Pali begging to go back next year! It was a fantastic
experience for him and his self esteem was sky high when he returned. His
counselors helped him to see his potential while he was there. He made friends
and worked with equipment he never used before….Was very proud of all the
things he accomplished.”
