A talented yet unsure teen who yearns to share her songs with the world, and a tempestuous young superstar who's lost his passion for music, learn to believe in themselves and to value the freedom to be who they really want to be, in "Camp Rock," a relevant, celebratory, music-and-dance-filled Disney Channel original movie for kids and families that stars Platinum-certified rockers Jonas Brothers (Joe, Kevin and Nick) and singer/songwriter/actress Demi Lovato ("As the Bell Rings").

The story is set at Camp Rock, the acclaimed summer workshop that launched the music careers of many including the hugely popular Connect 3. Aspiring singer-songwriter Mitchie Torres, a teen from a working class family, longs to be part of it and is thrilled when her mother, a caterer, takes a job as the camp cook so Mitchie can attend camp for a discounted tuition while helping in the kitchen.

On her first day at camp, Mitchie is intimidated by the privileged kids and feels as if she doesn't fit in anywhere. She is befriended by Caitlyn, a down-to-earth girl who wants to be a music producer, and quickly dazzled by the camp's veteran members, the catty clique led by diva Tess Tyler and her friends Peggy and Ella. Mitchie even tries to impress the trio with the tale of her mother being a high-ranking executive at Hot Tunes TV and agrees to join their group as back-up singer. All the while, she keeps quiet the fact that she's also working in the kitchen.

Meanwhile, Connect 3's summer concert tour is canceled and lead singer Shane Gray is forced to return to Camp Rock by his band mates, Jason and Nate. They're hoping Shane can get his ego in check by leading a few camp classes and rediscovering his passion for music. Although Shane's displeasure is obvious at first, he is eventually inspired by the campers' enthusiasm for music. When he hears a voice singing a song that deeply affects him, he sets out to find the girl behind the beautiful voice.

While the other campers fawn over Shane, he is particularly intrigued by Mitchie who seems to appreciate him for his art, not his celebrity image. But Tess is threatened by their budding friendship and makes it her mission to expose that Mitchie is merely "the kitchen help." Ultimately, she manages to get both Mitchie and Caitlyn banned from performing at the camp's big Final Jam competition.

On the last night of Camp Rock, with Shane, Jason and Nate as judges for Final Jam, and parents and families in the audience, it's up to Mitchie to overcome her fears and step into the spotlight, while the most unsuspecting camper wins the competition.

The cast includes Joe Jonas as Shane Gray, Demi Lovato as Mitchie Torres, Kevin Jonas as Jason, Nick Jonas as Nate, Maria Canals Barrera as Connie Torres, Alyson Stoner as Caitlyn Geller, Meaghan Jette Martin as Tess Tyler, Jasmine Richards as Peggy, Anna Maria Perez de Tagle as Ella, Julie Brown as Dee La Duke, Roshon Fegan as Sander, Jordan Francis as Barron and Daniel Fathers as Brown.
