Camp Mission

The Great Lakes Music Camp (GLMC) was dreamt up in 2017 by mandolinist/instructor, Jason Wheeler. A fine team of amazing human beings have since come to the table to create a music camp that offers classes, performances, discussions and demonstrations for the purpose of inspiring music lovers to keep music dear, pass it along and continue to learn and grow. In our inaugural year we will offer mandolin, guitar and fiddle tracks.

We are humbled to serve as a vehicle for music education and we have partnered with a fiduciary; The Grand River Water Festival (501c3). This partnership allows us to raise funds for programs surrounding traditional music education and local water quality issues in West Michigan. We are here to help West Michigan become better stewards of our traditions and our home. Funds raised through the public concert, sponsorship dollars and private contributions are donated by the GLMC to both Camp Blodgett and The Grand River Water Festival.
