Camp Spin Off is a week-long sonic adventure for youngsters ages 13-17 in Ojai, California. Aspiring DJ’s and producers come from all corners of the earth including Kenya and Italy to “live, eat and breathe” DJ culture. Campers of all skill levels are welcome. Some kids have already made names for themselves in the industry, others have never even touched a set of turntables. When they’re not rock-climbing, zip-lining, or roasting s’mores students bond over their love for music. It’s a truly unique experience.
Camp Spin Off is a volunteer-run 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All volunteers are DJ’s, music producers, and other industry professionals. The goal is to give access to the art of DJing to youth who might not have access otherwise due to the cost of equipment and instruction. This is not your mother’s camp experience. Gone are the days of sweltering in the woods. There’s no more squatting outside to relieve yourself either. Campers keep cool and clean with air-condition cabins and indoor plumbing. They work with a wide variety of state-of-the-art equipment and production software. Their daily schedules include guest speakers, specialized workshops, and cabin challenges. They hike, swim, and get busy on the 1’s and 2’s.
Sound Off™ X Camp Spin Off
Not much is cooler than a glowing, head-banging dance party that can only be heard with headphones. Campers LOVE a good silent disco! Sound Off™ has been silencing Camp Spin Off’s end-of-camp parties since 2014. “Sound Off Experience is literally the best part of camp for a lot of campers,” says Candice Corbett, Camp Spinoff’s Executive Director, and board member. She runs the day-to-day functions of the camp and facilitates fundraisers. Candice also finds sponsors for campers and helps them get registered. “Prior to using Sound Off headphones, our parties would always get shut down early – the police have even shown up! When Sound Off agreed to be apart of Camp Spin Off, our parties became legendary. It’s a life-changing experience.”
