Getting to rock out in person with The Who 's Roger Daltrey -- how's that for a rock 'n' roll fantasy?  Fans who attend an upcoming edition Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp, taking place this October at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut, will have the chance to do just that.

Daltrey will be among several well-known rockers who'll take part in the event, which will be the first Rock Fantasy Camp hosted by Foxwoods and will run from October 16 to October 19.  Other participating artists include Bad Company drummer Simon Kirke , Rick Derringer , Aerosmith touring bassist David Hull , and legendary pop/soul singer Darlene Love .

Musicians and singers of all skill levels are welcome at the camp.  Activities include writing and recording an original song, jam sessions, tutorial classes, and Q&A sessions with the famous music artists.  In addition, two concerts will be held featuring the mentors: one on October 18, and a finale show at Foxwoods' Fox Theater on the 19th.

Daltrey, who previously appeared at a January 2013 edition of the camp that was held in Las Vegas, says, "I feel quite passionate that anything that encourages people in music, just to see people with enthusiasm having fun even though they're all different abilities...rise to the occasion, it's fantastic!" 

Proceeds raised by the event will benefit Teen Cancer America, the charity Daltrey co-founded with band mate Pete Townshend that helps develop teen-friendly treatment facilities at various U.S. medical centers.  Roger's Fantasy Camp appearance will precede the launch of The Who's planned 50th anniversary tour.

If you're interested in attending this October's Rock 'n' Roll Fantasy Camp, you can reserve a spot by visiting RockCamp.com or calling 888-762-2263.

Meanwhile, a separate Rock Fantasy Camp installment running from July 31 to August 3 has been scheduled at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.  Among the rockers who will take part in this event include Aerosmith 's Brad Whitford , Jane's Addiction 's Stephen Perkins , Black Sabbath / Dio drummer Vinny Appice , Quiet Riot 's Rudy Sarzo , and Ratt 's Warren DeMartini .
