Running for over two decades now, Mr. Hetfield’s 2023 Rock and Roll Summer Camp in Rehoboth Beach Delaware begins on July 24, 2023 and continues through August 4, 2023.

The camp is open to aspiring rock and roll musicians from ages 8 to 16. Mr. Hetfield’s Rock and Roll Summer Camp is run by director Walt Hetfield. Mr. Hetfield has been the music teacher at Rehoboth Elementary School for the past twenty-five years. He is also an active rock and roll musician.

The camp is open to most instruments and vocalists. One of the primary goals of the camp is to take students who have been taking private or school band lessons on various instruments and getting them into an ensemble-playing situation. Mr. Hetfield’s Rock and Roll summer camp is a place for them to meet and play with other young musicians.

There is no formal audition, but campers need to have a rudimentary knowledge of their instrument. All interested guitarists should know basic chords (i.e. G, C , D , E, A major and minor) and a scale pattern or two. Drummers should have some familiarity with a drum set, etc. Keyboard players should be at least graduated to level two. Saxes and trumpets and other wind instruments are always welcome.
