THE INTERLOCHEN EXPERIENCE

On the path from who you are to who you will become, between what you have and what you’ll make, between your dream and your goal, you’ll find where you belong at Interlochen. Over 90 years of legacy dedicated to your future. Find your way here. Since 1928, northern Michigan has held a special place in the lives of dancers, actors, musicians, and artists from all over the world. For one summer, for one session, for one magical moment, Interlochen was their home. On a stretch of land separating two lakes, set back among the woods on 1,200 pristine acres, Interlochen Arts Camp was where they found themselves. To tens of thousands of Interlochen alumni, their time here was invaluable. They learned from great instructors and trained with talented artists who propelled their growth. They also made lifelong friends and memories. This is Interlochen. And this is where you belong.

NORTHERN MICHIGAN Interlochen Center for the Arts is located in the northwest corner of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula. It’s a beautiful region, full of stately pine forests, rolling sand dunes, and placid lakes. Michigan summers are temperate, but prepare for some fluctuation in temperature. Summer lows can dip into the 50s, and highs can soar into the 90s. Get ready for some of the bluest skies and brightest stars you’ve ever seen.

Interlochen


TRADITIONS Like any good summer camp, Interlochen Arts Camp has a number of fun, time-honored traditions. Here are a few of our favorites: FIRST GATHERING

Campers of all ages celebrate the opening of Camp by singing “Sound the Call.” THE INTERLOCHEN THEME

Performed at the end of every musical performance, and often conducted by a student, “The Interlochen Theme” is an excerpt from Howard Hanson’s Symphony No. 2, “Romantic.” “COLLAGE”

“Collage” is a sampler of all of Interlochen’s disciplines, presented in an immersive, fast-paced performance. THE MELODY FREEZE

The Melody Freeze serves up thousands of frozen treats to campers each summer, including the perpetual fan fave, the $1 ice cream cone. LES PRÉLUDES

Franz Liszt’s “Les Préludes” has been performed as the final number of Camp since 1928.
