The world’s premier summer arts program for aspiring artists in grades 3 through 12, Interlochen Arts Camp attracts students, faculty and staff from all 50 U.S. states and more than 40 countries. Each summer, 2,500 students come to Interlochen to train intensively with renowned instructors, producing more than 400 presentations in music, theatre, dance, visual arts, creative writing and motion picture arts. Located on 1,200 wooded acres between two lakes, the campus includes 120 cabins, three dining halls, two waterfronts, dozens of rehearsal and performance venues and a variety of outdoor recreational activities.

Broadway Bound formed a partnership in 2009 with Interlochen, in order to provide arts opportunities for students of color and with demonstrated financial need. A full scholarship, including all application and camp fees, as well as round trip transportation costs between Seattle and Michigan, is available for qualifying High School students. Broadway Bound will assist in the application process, including the videotaping of required audition selections. These applicants will be submitted to the Interlochen staff, and the theatre instructors at Interlochen will choose which student is awarded the scholarship.
