We are a summer day camp for girls and boys ages 9-17. NYCRC’s mission is to support a culture of positive self-esteem and collaboration among young people while building community through music. NYCRC recognizes the potential of every young person to be a strong, talented, creative and empowered individual while providing a safe space where everyone rocks.
At NYCRC campers can choose from instrument lessons in guitar, bass, vocals, drums, or keyboards, and can take workshops in song-writing, recording, photography, arts and crafts, or music history. Campers will have the opportunity to form their own bands and perform for an audience of fans, family, and friends at the culiminating Saturday Night Showcase. Reserve your spot today and give your child the gift of collaboration, freedom of expression and empowerment through the power of rock and roll!

About TORCH Music Fest

TORCH Music Fest is now in its twelve year and since its inception has been the biggest annual citywide talent competition and showcase open to all New York City high school students. From conception to creation, the event is entirely put together by the TORCH participants who plan, promote and produce the event. This includes production, set design, marketing, promotions and public relations, web design and creative design. Professionals from the music and entertainment industries mentor and advise the students throughout the project and also serve as judges at the event. Music Fest encourages NYC high school students to express and showcase their culture, creativity and talent. This project is an excellent example of how TORCH incorporates empowerment within the learning experience through visual and performing arts. TORCH Music Fest 2012 is scheduled for June 8, 2012.
