Interlochen is located in northwest Michigan, 15 miles southwest of Traverse City. Situated between two glacial lakes and surrounded by inspiring natural beauty, the campus of the Interlochen Center for the Arts is a wonderful place to learn, live and experience all that the arts have to offer.
During the academic year, Interlochen houses 500 Arts Academy boarding school students in grades 9-12. Come summer, Interlochen is home to over 3,000 campers, faculty and staff and hosts dozens of nationally recognized guest artists.
Interlochen's 1,200 acre wooded campus includes dozens of performance venues, exhibition spaces and much more. From the historic Interlochen Bowl to the new, state-of-the-art Hebert H. and Barbara C. Dow Center for Visual Arts, there is a lot to explore and enjoy.
Guided tours of campus are available at 10:00am and 2:00pm, the last week of June through the first week of August. At other times of the year, visitors are welcome to walk campus using our self-guided tour map, which is available at the Scholarshop store, just inside the main entrance. For more information about guided tours, call 231.276.7200 and ask for the Information Booth.
