We need your support to continue our mission!

Great Lakes Music Camp (GLMC) is an inspiring musical experience in West Olive, Michigan that creates a unique opportunity for equitable access to traditional music education.

2024 Sponsor Proposal

The camp is held on the shores of Lake Michigan at Camp Blodgett Loeks Retreat Center. In addition to engaging with world-class instructors, staff, and musicians you are immersed in the beauty of Michigan’s lakeshore for a weekend you won’t forget!

This experience is more than a weekend full of music. It is a chance to connect with nature, with a diverse musical community, to grow as an artist and to embrace a rich musical tradition. This is why we like the phrase, “It’s not about the music, it’s through the music.”.

GLMC’s team has long-standing partnerships with several community partners, organizations, businesses, and individuals who provide varying levels of support. We use funds raised through a fiduciary partnership with Grand River Watershed Arts & Music Council (GRWAMC), a registered 501c-3 non-profit organization. This support allows us to offer our Youth Scholarship Program and to provide additional financial assistance to students through the year for continued traditional arts education.
