This is a good thing. There are lots of folks who would love to build on their desire to play the music they love. I don't know if this was intentionally modelled after the official Rock and Roll Fantasy Camp (www.rockcamp.com), but it's a proven formula. The nice thing is that it's fairly inexpensive - RRFC is often $8k+. However, RRFC does let you play with names like Joe Walsh, Steven Tyler, and Sammy Hagar. I played with Elliot Easton (Cars) and Dave Ellefson (Megadeth) when I did RRFC, but I'm going to look into this Rock Cap for Dads and see if I can connect with loal guys and keep playing!

I've been to some of these camps before and they're nothing but FUN! If you have the time and desire, sign up!

How about a camp where you act like a grown up and hang out with responsible, married fathers and work at Habitat for Humanity or Sharing and Caring Hands? Or what about a fantasy camp that is a mission trip to help the unfortunate? I guess that wouldn't sell to well for those that want to retain their youth.

Kinni88---The most serious person of all time. Guys can't get together and make music? Get over yourself.

Maybe music could do you some good, kinni88. Temple University researchers have found that music & creative expression therapy can be seen as a form of anger management. It’s an accessible & effective tool that should be part of a person's health and wellness routines. Look into it.

Sorry guys, but Kinni88 is right. This is sad and irresponsible. These men (and women) should be directing their time, energy, and money towards their families and communities and not towards dated, selfish fantasies. And Shoe, I'm sure you could find just as many, if not more, studies show the kind of church/family/community activities Kinni88 is talking about has as many or more benefits. Just because something is "fun" doesn't mean it is good for you.

This church/community/service versus making music debate is silly. I happen to do BOTH! And you can too!
