Arts Exploration for Camp Parents

Why attend Arts Exploration for Camp Parents

Join fellow Camp parents and grandparents on opening day of Interlochen Arts Camp to experience an arts education for yourself at Interlochen. Learn new drawing skills, approaches to writing a short story or memoir, and try your hand at a variety of musical instruments. You will also have the option to learn about the college admissions process for your child or attend a lecture on classical music. The afternoon of programming will conclude with a reception and a fun look back at Interlochen’s rich cultural history and traditions of the Arts Camp.
