Interlochen to Welcome Summer Campers Back on Campus
“Interlochen arts camp will be in person this summer and we couldn’t be more delighted.” - Katherine Luellen
Campers at the Interlochen Center for the Arts will be back this summer season, but things will look a little different.
Interlochen is announcing that the summer session will go on – but with 50% fewer students. And they’ll be adding extra COVID-19 protocols to protect campers and staff.
Interlochen says this school year they hosted more than 500 students on campus with zero cases of community transmission of the Coronavirus. Executive Dean of Enrollment Management, Katherine Luellen, says, “I think it is important that young people are able to be together who are creative. And they’ve had a difficult year. So we are delighted to give them this opportunity to be in-person this summer, learning.” Luellen adds, “They’ll be able to come together and feed off that creative energy.”
The Interlochen Arts camp will also offer two summer sessions online. And students will again put on a number of performances throughout the summer season, many of which will be streamed live.
Summer students will also get their first look at Interlochen’s brand new, 25,000 sq. foot Dance Center, which just opened last month.
