Born in 2013, Youth Rock Camp Moab was started by Moab Musicians Amy Stocks and Josie Kovash. Youth Rock Camp Moab works in collaboration with other local musicians, the Moab Teen Center, KZMU as the sponsoring organization — and the kids themselves, who learn an instrument, write a song and perform it, all in four days.
Marty Durlin created a radio piece about 2015’s camp, listen here:
Youth Rock Camp Moab is taking a break in 2018!
