Funded by the generosity of late Interlochen Center for the Arts trustee Lee Dennison, the Dennison Center for Recreation and Wellness is a 23,000-square-foot facility that boasts a large gymnasium, weight and fitness studios, a game room, rock climbing wall, and more. The Center provides students with access to top-of-the-line fitness equipment, free fitness classes, intramural sports tournaments, and school-sponsored sports.

The fitness classes are led by licensed instructors. Classes offered each semester are subject to change based on student interest and instructor availability. Past classes include:

  • Yoga
  • Barre
  • Reboot
  • Exercise Foundations
  • Zumba
  • TRX

The Dennison Center also hosts intramural sports leagues and tournaments—as well as our school-sponsored Fighting Blueberries athletic teams that compete against other local high schools. Sports offered include:

  • Basketball (men’s and women’s)
  • Cross Country (men’s and women’s)
  • Volleyball (women’s)
  • Lacrosse (women’s)
