“What has always intrigued me the most about modeling is that there are some who can make an image better rather than just be a part of it. The best models are a part of the creative process, they are an artist themselves, and that’s how I’ve always seen Coco Rocha. Whether in print or on the runway, you feel something when you see Coco. Truly a master of pose, and that starts in her mind, in her understanding of imagery and fashion. Young models should feel empowered to see themselves as a creative, and to learn that through experiencing The Coco Rocha Model Camp is an incredible opportunity and priceless head start!"
The Coco Rocha Model Camp is a boutique master class for models taught by supermodel Coco Rocha. It is an elite education in both the practical and artistic sides of what is often viewed as complex and mysterious industry. Class sizes are purposefully kept extremely small so that Coco is able to tailor her education to each participant individually. As such the camp is equally beneficial for models starting out in the world of modeling as well as those who have had a number of years of experience. Each participant is hand selected by Coco Rocha herself and availability is extremely limited.

Like all businesses around the world had to make plans for reopening in the summer of 2020 in a COVID-19 global environment. As our previous location in New York was too small to successfully socially distance in the way that New York State expects, at considerable expense we had to find a much larger venue. Nothing at all has changed regarding the education we provide at CRMC, but as you might have noticed on more recent instagram posts, our new CRMC studio space is cavernous and allows for a minimum of 8 feet social distancing at all times between participants. We carefully follow all state and federal guidelines and require all attendees and staff to wear masks while interacting. Food preparation and cleaning follows strict protocol and every model attending now has the opportunity to pay for a private suite for herself (something we could not offer in our previous location which was set up dorm-style). All guests have their temperature checked and sign a health affidavit when they check into camp and visitors from out-of-state must also follow state and federal guidelines regarding appropriate testing. Our staff and Coco herself is tested regularly between camps.
Camp check in and orientation dinner followed by an introductory class, portfolio review and an honest discussion of strengths and weaknesses.
Pose and runway classes with Coco followed by an open discussion on the industry, expectations vs. realties. Anonymous questions submitted from all models will be answered with candor.
Seminars on social media, branding, agencies, contracts and the fashion industry. A mentored photo shoot with an internationally published photographer, glam squad and Coco herself will result in high quality fashion images for your portfolio.
Breakfast and check out.
Coco Rocha Model Camp New York is housed at a beautiful location, 30 miles north of New York City. For the safety of Coco and all participants we keep the location private unless someone is a contractual participant with the camp. We are accessible via car or metro north train from New York and all NYC airports. You will be staying 3 nights with us on site and all your meals are covered.
“I’m a firm believer that you must always invest in yourself, whether it be your career or your craft. I did just that when I attended Coco Rocha’s model camp. The Queen of Pose not only opened her arms to share her gift but also made sure we left knowing that we had grown. Grown into stronger, more confident women that can take on this industry with fearless unapologetic poise. Camp made me a better model, a better business woman with my brand and my walk, is dangerous hunny!”
"Meeting Coco was such an honor. Not only was she an incredible teacher and mentor, but she is an amazing mother and someone I can call a friend. As a model who started a couple years ago, Coco taught me how to step out of my comfort zone and work the camera in ways I didn’t know I could. The greatest thing about camp is that you don’t just get one great mentor, but two. James (Coco's husband and manager) taught me the business side of the industry and his advice is something I will use for the rest of my career."
