Host a European Camper

Every summer, Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp enrolls more than fifty European campers who experience our American summer camp as part of the International Exchange Program. Every European community that hosts a Blue Lake International ensemble receives several camp scholarships to present to young musicians from that community. As part of the program, Blue Lake coordinates a one week host family stay for the student before or after their camp session. Like the hospitality that is shown to our Blue Lake students traveling in Europe, American host families from our Blue Lake community are encouraged to share traditions, food, and customs of their family and community with their European guest. Contact the Blue Lake International Exchange Program at or call 231-894-1966 for more information on how you can become a host family for our special European guest campers.
