You can't miss with a theater production, a musical, a ballet recital, art show or reading here. Everything, whether it's performed by the students or outside artists, is top notch.

We happened across this amazing place whilst visiting Traverse City MI. The Academy centres on the performing arts and academic studies for highly talented young people. The centre itself is wonderful and even though we had not planned to visit we found ourselves there for several hours. If you go when the summer schools are taking place you will be... More

The concert venue is wonderful for listening and viewing the concert. It is possible to stay in cottages right on the grounds. The concert is dry, and even worse is that only water was allowed in the concert area.

I had no idea what we would find when we ventured to this music/arts camp of 2,700 children from elementary through high school, and from all over the world! This is a rigorous and high-class operation for six weeks each summer, and if you are in the area, do go for a visit and see/hear some concerts. Housing may be... More

My 10 year old attended the summer dace program for 4 weeks and didn't want to come home. The staff are so caring and professional that I was comfortable leaving my first born in their hands for a month. If your child wants to intensely study an art form for the summer, but you as a parent aren't ready for... More

If you are not familiar with the Interlochen Center for the Arts it is, quite simply, the premiere educational venue for young artists in the world. My son is an alumnus of the famous Summer Arts Camp and the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy boarding school. He has been on staff at the Arts Camp for three years and I wanted... More

Had a great time seeing a concert here last year and decided to stay on campus for the triathlon this year. It is a smoke /alcohol free campus. It still has many students here during the summer. There are some food vendors in the main area that serve coffee, hamburgers, and ice cream. It's very pretty. The cabins remind me... More

Interlochen Center for the Arts is an amazing place. The campus is beautifully set on a lake and all the performance venues are top notch. The high school (Interlochen Arts Academy) and the Summer Camp, attract talented students from all 50 states and around the world. Every performance (dance, theater, music, opera or visual art) is professionally done. If you... More
