In December 2003, as he was turning 50, Hofstetter dreamed that he was in a rock and roll camp, jamming with artists that he adored.
Seeing it as a sign, he enrolled in the Rock ’n’ Roll Fantasy Camp, a five-day fantasy-come-true program in New York City founded and run by tour producer David Fishof (who also operates camps in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and London). Roger Daltrey taught me 'Pin Ball Wizard.' That’s a true fantasy," says Hofstetter. No matter what your fantasy may be—to become an astronaut on a shuttle mission, an elephant trainer, even a ghost hunter—chances are there is a program or camp waiting for you.
Become immersed in a lush tropical habitat surrounded by hundreds of butterflies (at the most glorious stage of their fascinating life cycle) moving freely throughout the exhibit.
Guests of all ages will be delighted as they experience 40-50 different species of butterflies through intimate interaction all set in a unique, custom-designed greenhouse.
