Join us in 2018 for our 41st Season

Blue Lake Suzuki Family Camp, in its 41st season, is designed as an opportunity for families to learn and play together following the teaching of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki.

“Nurturing and positive early environment foster high musical ability in any child guided properly by teachers and parents working together.” 

Camping at Blue Lake provides an opportunity to experience West Michigan's beautiful natural features while focusing on family-oriented Suzuki training. Families camp in rustic cabins and dine together in a cafeteria-style setting at Marek Hall. Campfire rings and picnic tables are available throughout the housing areas.

Blue Lake's instructional and housing facilities span nearly 300 acres of Manistee National Forest, with wandering footpaths and trails through the woods and along Little Blue Lake. The camp offers two large swimming pools overlooking the lakeshore and Central Park beach area.
