Program Highlights

Performance Opportunities

At the end of the session, there will be a two-performance run of the show. This is your chance to take the stage and show your friends and family what you've learned this summer.

Recreational Activities

This might be an arts camp, but it's still camp! In addition to theatre rehearsals, you'll have the chance to explore the woods and swim, play field games, and learn cool skills like archery.

I've learned that it's just not your play. When you work together, you create a puzzle. And the puzzle is the play.

Camp alumnus Jesse Green

From Interlochen dilettante to the Times

Jesse Green (IAC/NMC 67-74) spent his summers at Interlochen, majoring in music, drama, visual arts, and radio. Little did he know that this was his first step on a path that led him to The New York Times as a theater critic. “It was the best possible education I could have had,” said Green. “There are many ways to have careers in culture and in the arts, and they don’t all require you to be a prodigy.”
