The Other Michigan

Social and Cultural Change in Michigan's Upper Peninsula

This program introduces high school students to "The Other Michigan," the rural Upper Peninsula. Learn about or discover about the wonders and complexities of the Upper Peninsula in this one-week camp taught by Northern Michigan University faculty members. 

In this camp, learn about the history of the Upper Peninsula and visiting a mining site; visit ghost towns that were once booming cities; discover the environment that is unique to the U.P., including the watersheds, flora and fauna of the U.P.; explore the U.P.'s parks and recreation; and much more. 

This camp is open to students in 10th and 11th grades. Students in this camp will live in the residence halls and eat on campus. Transportation to and from the activities throughout the Upper Peninsula is included.
