This special music camp in the heart of the badlands offers aspiring singers, songwriters, and musicians the opportunity to learn from Kat Perkins and her handpicked team of advisers – whether they are hoping to simply elevate their music to the next level, or dream of taking those amazing talents all the way to the top.
Campers age 12-18 spend four days in the Badlands in an immersive and inspiring musical environment with training focused on vocals, stage performance, artist branding and more. Plus, campers enjoy time with Kat and many of the perks of being in North Dakota’s #1 Vacation Destination. Camp details are as follows:

Here’s a little taste of the Camp from 2016!
Reflecting on the decision to start her camp, Kat tells the story: “When I was 17, I had a life-changing experience at a music camp. It made me a better singer, performer, and it changed my whole perspective on performing as a career.
“Then on NBC’s The Voice, my life changed once more in so many positive ways. After that experience, I instantly knew that I needed to use my ‘new voice’ to educate and inspire.
“Now, I’m setting out to change lives just like mine was, and my Badlands Rising Star Camp is set up to do just that. We will create, support and inspire!”
TRMF Marketing and Communications Director, Justin Fisk, added, “When Kat was starring on The Voice, we were so excited for her and immediately started talking with her about performing in Medora.
“What has made us so proud to partner with her, though, has been her commitment to the youth of North Dakota through her school tours and, now, with her Badlands Rising Star Camp, which gives so much back to our state. It aligns perfectly with our mission to connect people to Medora for positive, life-changing experiences.”
Nearly 40 talented singers from as far away as California participated in last year’s Rising Star Camp in Medora. Availability is limited so interested parties are encouraged to sign up as soon as possible.
Campers will again open Kat’s Headline North Dakota Concert in Medora on July 1 before that evening’s Medora Musical.
Pre-sale tickets for Kat’s July 1 Country Tribute Concert in Medora are available now at Medora.com.
