Blue Lake Suzuki Family Camp provides families an opportunity to learn and play together in a rustic, wilderness camping environment. Established by Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in 1976, the Suzuki Family Camp takes place on Blue Lake’s 1,600 acre campus just north of Muskegon, Michigan. Most classes are taught in rustic cabins and lodges in the woods while recitals and concerts are held in a variety of performance venues, including the 4,000 seat Stewart Shell near the lake.
Blue Lake Suzuki Family Camp offers instruction for violin, viola, cello, bass, and piano. The three core classes—individualized instruction, technique classes, and a large repertoire group—are augmented by chamber music, orchestras, fiddling, improvisation, and chamber music for pianists. Additional activities center around the outdoors, including swimming pools, wooded trails, and campfires at night. Blue Lake Suzuki Family Camp also offers the Art Barn, where students can create all kinds of interesting works of art throughout the day.
Families stay in individual rustic cabins or are welcome use designated camp sites for tents, campers, or recreational vehicles. Lodging is also available 7 miles away within the resort area of White Lake.
