Traditions Like any great 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 classical music performance, and often conducted by a student, “The Interlochen Theme” is an excerpt from Howard Hanson’s Symphony No. 2, “Romantic.” “COLLAGE” “Collage” is where all of Interlochen’s seven arts disciplines converge in an immersive, fast-paced performance and pop-up visual exhibition on the mall. 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.
