It is never too soon to start planning ahead especially when it comes to kids and their summer activities. If your child has a passion for the arts you may want to consider enrolling them next summer in the Interlochen Summer Arts Camp for grades 3-12. This camp is a little different than most sleepaway camps in that they offer specialized courses in dance, theater, music, visual arts, creative writing and more.
According to Google Maps, Interlochen Center for the Arts is a mere 5 hour and 5-minute drive from Marquette, located 15 miles southwest of Traverse City. Interlochen Center for the Arts sits on a 1,200-acre campus and their summer camp dates vary by program but generally run between June and August.
GlenEllen Lehmberg, a Marquette native and recent Michigan State University graduate spent the whole of her summer interning at Interlochen Summer Arts Camp. Lehmberg graduated from MSU in the spring of 2019 with a degree in Comparative Culture Politics. Never heard of that major? Lehmberg explained it is basically a combination of political science and international relations. Lehmberg chose to intern at Interlochen vs. jumping right into a full-time position to gain the experience and skills necessary to reach her career goals.
Lehmberg sought the internship at Interlochen due to her own passion for the arts. She spent her high school years immersed in Redmen Chorale, MSHS Band and performing with Superior Arts Youth Theater, and then in college participated in campus band and women’s glee club.
Lehmberg was thrilled when she was offered an internship at the summer camp because she has always wanted to experience Interlochen as a camper but never had the chance. The summer internship allowed her to experience Interlochen’s rich arts-focused culture and give her the opportunity to pad her resume with much-needed work experience so succeed in the professional world of philanthropy and fundraising.
Interlochen, a non-profit organization was the perfect place to start her on her road to success…
