It's a different experience - by design:

Rock Star Camp Mission Statement and Philosophy
This camp is about changing education through technology, building an ever expanding group of tech-oriented educators. Rock Star is built for teachers to socialize in the context of connecting these inspired educators from throughout California and beyond.

Saturation:
Rock Star purposely limits attendees' comprehensible input to TWO 2 HOUR sessions per day. This prevents "info glut" and allows enough time to gain mastery during the sessions.

Social time:
Daily social time is built in to the schedule, before class, at long lunches and evening "after parties".
Rock Star is about the powerful "what if" conversations that happen after sessions that carry on into the evening.

Cost:
Rock Star will always be a low cost camp, allowing teachers to pay their own way.

Collaboration:
Rock Star session leaders and attendees should expect to add very rich and exciting personalities to their personal learning network, whether via email, Twitter or any other web 2.0 collaboration tool.
