Join Crystalaire Adventures and Camp Lookout at the Klein family household to learn more about our summer residential programs and adventure trips. We’ve been running fun and educational programs out of northern Michigan for almost a century, and now is your chance to join in on the fun! Programs run from ages 8 – 17.
The event will be hosted at the Klein’s house, 6735 Franklin Woods, Traverse City, MI. We’ll start at 3:30 and continue for an hour. Strangers are welcome, and the event will be quite informal. Show up anytime between 3:30 and 4:30! Contact Micah Leinbach at (414) 803 7080 or [email protected] to RSVP so we can make sure there’ll be enough hot chocolate!
Micah Leinbach, the Director of Crystalaire Adventures will be there speaking about both programs, along with Nicco Pandolfi, a longtime participant and staff member of both Crystalaire and Camp Lookout.
Camp Lookout offers a residential camp experience stemming from the historic Crystalaire Camp (Frankfort) and Camp Innisfree (Glen Arbor). Participants work with staff to develop creative activities inspired by kids who are allowed to be just that, kids. One week, two week, 3 night, and day camp programs are offered to kids of all genders ages 7 – 15, along with opportunities for sailing instruction, arts and crafts, camping, theatre, and more.
Crystalaire Adventures offers adventure education programming for kids ages 9 – 17, with longer trips beginning at 5 days for those age 12 and up. Trips for 13 – 17 year old participants include up to two weeks of backpacking, community service, sailing, or canoeing. 16, 17, and 18 year olds are invited to participate in a 3-week leadership program and those older than that can seek paid internships through our “apprenticeship program.” Trips show off the great natural beauty of upper Michigan and Canada, and are opportunities for youth to take on responsibility and set their own schedules. Participants are given the chance to shape all aspects of the trip, from navigation and route finding to cooking and meal preparation.
