Host a European Camper

Every summer, Blue Lake enrolls as many as 70 European Campers who attend Blue Lake as part of the International Exchange Program.

Every European community that hosts a Blue Lake International Ensemble receives one full tuition scholarship for a local young musician.  As part of the program, Blue Lake coordinates a one week host family arrangement for the student prior to their camp session.

Like the hospitality that is shown to Blue Lake students travelling in Europe, domestic host families are encouraged to expose their European guest to the traditions, food, and customs of their family and community.
