Parents of campers that attend Interlochen Arts Camp share about their Interlochen experience.
Welcome! We are now welcoming applications for summer 2018! Additional resources for families will be available soon.
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.
Student and Family Handbooks and Packing Lists
Below are examples of the 2017 Student and Family Handbooks and Packing Lists. Summer 2018 handbooks and packing lists will be available soon.
Submit a question. Please allow 1-3 business days for a response depending on the time of year. Our busiest times are May and June.
The summer 2018 performance schedule will be announced later in the spring.
Ordering Student Tickets for Guest Performances
Students have the opportunity to attend guest artist performances that are part of the Interlochen Arts Festival performance series. If you would like your child to attend any of these concerts, tickets can be purchased later in the spring. Students do not need to order tickets for student events. More information on student ticketing will be available soon.
Families may order their own tickets to any of the Interlochen Arts Festival performances at tickets.interlochen.org. The 2018 lineup will be announced later in the spring.

Photos, Student Recordings, and Performance Programs
Throughout the summer, our roving staff photographers will post images to our SmugMug site at ica.smugmug.com. The site is free to use. You may view images at no charge; prints and other items may be purchased. While we strive to capture photos of as many campers as possible, we can not accept photo requests or guarantee that every camper will appear in the gallery.
Audio of many student performances is available online through Interlochen Public Radio: interlochenpublicradio.org/term/interlochen-recordings
Performance programs are located on the Archives website: archives.interlochen.org/ARTICA. Use the search bar near the top of the page. Try to be as specific as possible. Multiple search terms may be comma separated.
