Camp Family Resource Center

  • Parents of campers that attend Interlochen Arts Camp share about their Interlochen experience.

Welcome! Information on the 2016 Interlochen Arts Camp application process is coming this Fall. Important information and forms for families are posted here.

Located in northwestern lower Michigan, Interlochen is a part of the Grand Traverse region, which is a popular travel destination. If you plan to accompany your child to or from Interlochen, we hope you have some time to explore our beautiful area. There's a lot to see and do, and we've put together some of our favorite Traverse City events, attractions, restaurants, and online resources.
