What a Camper Needs to Know

Eskil works with Anna Zuver and Aaron GordonWe accept players and singers in middle and high school, with playing and singing skills on a late beginner/intermediate (quick learner) through advanced levels. Remember, this is not a camp for those new to their instrument.


  • Guitar players should know their basic open chords and bar chords and know a little bit about scales and the notes on their fret boards. A knowledge of key relationships is also helpful.
  • Bass players should be able to play simple bass patterns in a steady fashion, and know a little about chord relationships.
  • Drummers should be able to keep a steady beat for a minimum of three minutes, and know the basic rock and blues patterns.
  • Keyboard players should know the basic chords in most keys, and have some knowledge of the relationship between keys.
  • Horn players should be able to play all 12 major scales. They will need to have their own instruments, and in good working condition.
  • Singers should be able to match pitch. Nerves of steel are helpful.

All campers should bring an eagerness to learn, a willingness to be creative, and a determination to do his or her best.

Available Slots

Before registering, please check the information in the window below to find out if there is an open slot for your instrument for the session of your choice.

Registration Form

The registration process is in two parts: filling out the form and payment. The completed form will take you to PayPal where you may pay by credit card.  Should you wish to pay by check, you may send it to Atlanta Rock 'n Blues Camp, c/o Micki Gonzalez, 3087 Belingham Drive NE, Atlanta GA 30345.  

You must submit your registration form via this website in order for us to process your check.

Registration will be complete immediately after PayPal payment. Registration payment via check will be complete upon clearing.

Both parts of registration must be completed at the same time.  If you do not complete the selection of check or credit card for payment, and in the case of credit card payment complete that transaction, your completed form will be discarded and you must fill it in again.

If you wish to register more than one student, you will have the opportunity to return to this form and fill it out again.

Paying for Multiple Sessions

In order to afford as many musical teens the experience of attending our camp as possible, we are initially restricting all campers to two sessions this summer. In the event we open up more band slots later in the Spring, we will announce the opportunity to add a third session for those interested. Note there is a discount for registering for two sessions on the same registration form. Our discount is for two sessions for the same camper, not a sibling. (We had to choose, and this discount helps more families.)

Georgia waiver of liability for injury or death while attending Atlanta Rock ’n Blues Camp LLC.


Atlanta Rock ’n Blues Camp, LLC, will be abiding by the current guidelines from CDC, the Georgia Department of Public Health, and “Bright from the Start,” a child-based state organization in Georgia with respect to the operation of summer camps. At this point, before camp opens, we can say that our expectation is that all campers will be vaccinated, including the booster. All of our staff are boosted.

Should circumstances become such that more protocols must be added, we will initiate all or some of the following:

  1. Wear a mask in the practice room if for any reason, a member of the band is not vaccinated.
  2. Keep reasonable distance as practical in practice rooms and at lunch.
  3. Vocalists will not share microphones.
  4. Parents coming to watch daily jams are asked to mask and keep distant from others as much as is possible.

A full set of rules for camp will be sent to all registered campers and parents well before each camp session begins. All requirements with respect to COVID-19 mitigation are subject to revision and modification depending on the advice of public health officials. Please check the box below acknowledging the State’s required waiver, and that you have read ARBC’s COVID-19 protocol and agree on behalf of your child to comply therewith.


Under Georgia law, there is no liability for an injury or death of an individual entering these premises if such injury or death results from the inherent risks of contracting COVID-19. You are assuming this risk by entering these premises.

Policies on refunds and changes of session


Atlanta Rock 'n Blues Camp [ARBC] is, above all, a place where students who love to play their instruments can learn to work together to form bands and perform the music they love. Ours is a band-centered camp, with individuals in each band contributing a unique set of skills, and whose absence would affect all other members of the band. It is this fact that drives our refund policy.

If a registration is cancelled before April 30, we will issue a full refund. Cancellations between May 1 and May 15 will result in a 50% refund. After May 15 no refunds will be given unless for a significant medical condition or death in the family. Cancelling players are, however, free to find an appropriate replacement player to take the spot and work out the fee between them.


There have been times when a camper has needed, or wished, to change sessions in order to conform to family plans, or to attend camp with friends. ARBC is glad to accommodate these changes when possible, however we cannot guarantee that a space will be available in the desired session. Wishing to change a session close to camp time can result in a band losing a necessary player, which makes any change especially difficult and in many cases, not feasible.
