WRAPS is super excited to be able to offer a second camp for youth this summer. RAWK Camp will run from August 22nd to 26th at the Ashcroft HUB. Participants (aged 8 and up) will spend their days rocking out with the members of Speed Control and local music teacher Dave Dumont. Straight out of -40 degrees in Canada’s Yukon, Graeme Peters, brother Jody Peters, and Ian March formed the power trio Speed Control. The three members all come from a jazz and classical background but have turned to their true passion – rock n’ roll. The week will end with an evening show by Speed Control featuring all the students.
“The premise of the RAWK Camps is to teach participants that there’s more to music than the Top 40 we hear on the radio, and that music can be a whole lot of fun. We also provide them with skills that they can use down the road. Skill development is so important.” -JODY PETERS, SPEED CONTROL BASSIST
Space is limited to just 20 participants, so be sure to register early. Registration is $50 per student. T-Shirts are also available for $20 each. Students will be split into two groups and will spend half the day with Speed Control and half the day with Dave learning band instruments. The camp will run from 930 to 230 daily, with a final performance at 7pm on Friday. Tickets for the performance are $20 in advance or $25 at the door, and will be available for purchase from our website as well as various businesses sometime in the middle of July.
Come let your inner rockstar out and show us all that Ashcroft RAWKS!
