Summer Programs

Postby BrassyNathan12 » Mon Mar 05, 2018 3:10 am

Hi all,
I am currently a Junior in high school, and I'm looking for summer programs to apply and attend for since I haven't been to one yet. I currently live in California, but if it's not too expensive (like... $4000+ type of expensive), I can probably go to another state or something.

tl;dr, basically please help recommend me some great summer programs!

Thanks! :tuba:

The best summer program is at Interlochen, at Interlochen Michigan. It'll be the best 6 weeks of your life. Tuition is up to $9200 looks like, but they are generous with scholarships. I did the summer program for five summers and attended the academy for my junior and senior years in high school.

I second the recommendation for Interlochen, but if it's looking too pricey theb Blue Lake is also wonderful. Spent three Summers attending Blue Lake in high school, and it changed my life. Only an 11-day camp, but they keep you busy. Either place, you'll work and play hard.
