Camp Rock 3: Battle of the Bands

Summary: It is Mitchie's final summer at camp after her senior year and new problems arise. Bad Boy Anthony Higgins and his group of rocker punks have invaded the camp and want the final jam trophy as well as Mitchie. Anthony is also an old rival of Connect Three and is determined to kick them off the charts. Can Mitchie help connect 3 or will Anthony get what he wants?

Authors note: Since I am following the camp rock theme, this will be a musical, but since I suck at writing songs, I will be picking songs that I think fit the scene.

Chapter One: Summer is finally here

Mitchie Tores was extremely excited to be returning to camp rock for her third and final summer, only this time, she wasn't arriving with her mom, she was riding the connect 3 tour bus with Shane, Nate and Jason.

"This is going to be an awesome summer" Mitchie said excitedly. Shane grinned and put an arm around her.

"Yeah, especially since Camp Star went out of business" Nate said, grabbing a coke.

"I can't believe this is my last year though" Mitchie said sadly.

"Don't think about that yet" Shane said. "Just think of all the…." He trailed off as he looked out the window when the bus entered the Camp Rock gate. "Oh no! Look who's here" Nate and Jason followed Shane's gaze and groaned. Anthony Higgins was leaning on a motorcycle sneering at the tour bus as it pulled to a stop. Mitchie glanced out the window as well.

"Who's that?" She asked eying the boy, who was dressed in leather.

"Tony Higgins" Shane spat. "He's been our rival since Connect 3 reached number one on the charts. He keeps trying to upstage us or make us look bad" Mitchie frowned.

"What's he doing here?" She asked. Shane shrugged.

"He's probably ready to try and destroy our career again" He replied. Mitchie clenched her fists.

"well, we won't let him" She said. "This is our summer, and it's our time to shine" She got off the bus and was suddenly mobbed by her four friends, Peggy, Caitlyn, Ella and Tess.

"Have you seen the hunkmester?" Tess asked, motioning towards Tony. Mitchie rolled her eyes.

"He's only here to ruin Shane's career" She said warily. Tess rolled her eyes.

"Don't be so dramatic, Mitch" She said, "he's gorgeous"

"Whatever" Mitchie said, dropping the subject. "I've got something cooked up for opening night, if you're interested"

"Sure" The girls nodded and they left in a whirl wind, leaving Connect Three confused.

"Don't worry" Tony said, stepping in front of them. "All girls are like that" Shane eyed his nemesis carefully.

"What do you want Tony?" He asked.

"Hmm, let me think, I want your career, your girl, and your life" Tony snapped. "It should have been mine" Shane shook his head.

"We've been over this many times Tony, these are my brothers, and we formed Connect Three as a family group, even if it did start here" Shane said.

"Whatever, but you're going down this summer Gray, and I think afterwards, I'll enjoy a little alone time with Mitchie" Tony said. Shane raised a hand to slug him but Jason pulled him away.

"Come on man, Mitchie will never go for him" Nate said, slapping a hand on Shane's back. "She is way too smart and in love with you to do that"

"Besides, you and Mitchie have had a long distance relationship for three years," Jason said. "Mitchie would never give you up for that piece of trash" Shane sighed.

"I hope you're right guys" He said. "Let's get ready for opening night"

At opening night, Brown, the owner of the camp, introduced Mitchie and her friends as the first entertainment of the night. Mitchie walked up to the microphone and spoke.

"This is a song that I wrote over the summer about everything we've been through and how we kept it together through hardships. It's called, Gift of a friend" She began playing her guitar while Baron and Sander played background instruments. Mitchie started off the song.

Mitchie: Sometimes You think You'll Be Fine by Yourself
Cause a Dream is a Wish You Make all alone
Its Easy to Feel Like You Dont Need Help
But Its Harder To Walk On Your Own

You'll Change
Inside
When You
Realize

All: The World Comes To Life
and Everything's bright
From Beginning To End
When You Have a Friend
By Your Side
That Helps You To Find
The Beauty you are
When You'll Open Your Heart and
Believe in
The Gift of a Friend
The Gift of a Friend

Caitlyn stepped up to the microphone and began the next line.

Caitlyn: Someone Who knows When Your Lost and Your Scared
There through The Highs and The Lows
Someone to count On
Someone Who Cares
Besides You Where Ever You Go

You'll Change Inside
When You
Realize

All: The World Comes To Life
and Everythings bright
From Beginning To End
When You Have a Friend
By Your Side
That Helps You To Find
The Beauty you are
When You'll Open Your Heart and
Believe in
The Gift of a Friend

Tess: And When your Hope Crashes Down
Shattering To The Ground
You , You Feel All Alone
Ella: When You Don't Know Which Way To Go
And There's No signs Leading You home
You're Not Alone

All: The World Comes To Life
and Everything's bright
From Beginning To End
When You Have a Friend
By Your Side
That Helps You To Find
The Beauty you are
When You'll Open Your Heart and
Believe In
Peggy: When You Believe In
When you Believe
The Gift of A Friend

All of the campers cheered when the song was finished. Shane hopped up on to stage and Mitchie kissed him, surprising him. Tony scowled and crossed his arms. Shane kept one arm wrapped around Mitchie and spoke into the microphone.

"Is everyone ready for a fabulous summer?" He asked. The campers cheered.

"Now we all know the hard work everyone put into Final Jam last year, but this year, Final Jam is going to be a little different" Shane explained.

"You mean, we won't be fighting Camp Star" Caitlyn said, grinning. Several people laughed.

"Exactly, but we will have a competition, called Battle of the Bands. Each band that signs up must have a drummer, guitarist and lead singer to compete, but you may have more people in your band if you choose. The band winners will receive…" Shane took a deep breath. Now that he knew Anthony was here, he hesitated to announce the prize, because Tony would be ruthless in order to win it. Mitchie took the microphone.

"They will receive a record deal with the same recording company that Connect Three uses" She said. She looked right at Anthony when she said this and then turned away. "Shane and I will be judging along with Nate and Jason"

"How do we know you won't be biased?" Anthony asked. Mitchie looked right at him.

"We know talent when we see it" She said. "So work hard, practice, but if anyone is caught cheating or breaking the rules, they will be disqualified. Now, Let the fun begin" The campers cheered and the party was in full swing with other campers getting on the stage and singing their heart out. Mitchie sat with Shane by the camp fire and listened to the music, content with where she belonged.
