TNTRC Day Camp


TNTRC (Murfreesboro, TN): June 9 – June 13, 2014

TNTRC (Nashville, TN): July 14 – July 18, 2014

Tennessee Teens Rock & Roll Camp (TNTRC) is a summer day camp for girls and boys ages 10-17. TNTRC is presented and produced by Youth Empowerment through Arts & Humanities (YEAH!), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit youth arts organization. TNTRC’s mission is to support a culture of positive self-esteem and collaboration among young people while building community through music. TNTRC recognizes the potential of every young person to be a strong, talented, creative and empowered individual while providing a safe space where everyone rocks. Aside from instrument instruction, TNTRC offers many other ways to rock out. Exclusive performances by local, regional, and national bands and artists offer students an opportunity to experience a diverse range of musical styles. In camp workshops, students will learn skills like songwriting, recording, and screenprinting, in addition to life skills like teamwork as they join forces to complete projects over the course of the week. The most exciting part of camp week is the opportunity for students to form their own band and collaborate on a song to perform at a showcase at the end of the week.

TNTRC in the News

Tennessee Teens Rock Camp has been voted in the Top 10 by the Nashville Scene Magazine!


The best song written about the Deepwater Horizon tragedy in the Gulf of Mexico, you should know, was called “Deepwater Horizon,” and written by a band called Rolling Radiation, who had only existed for a week — they met and formed at the inaugural Tennessee Teens Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp, the new, co-educational offshoot of the venerable Southern Girls Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp. If living in an industry town has made you forget that music is about fun and friendship and nervousness and joy, do us all a favor and send a kid — maybe even your own — to this camp next year.
