The mission of the Shell Lake Arts Center is to provide creative arts education and enrichment experiences for diverse populations of youth and adult learners. We are home to the oldest continuously running jazz camp in the nation, and host a variety of other workshops and camps throughout the summer including Painting & Drawing, Music Theater, Rock Band and more! Join us near the beautiful shores of Shell Lake, where you will find no stoplights, no fast food, and not even a strip mall. Instead, you’ll find a sandy beach, many nature trails, a community of friendly neighbors, and a flurry of artistic fun at the Shell Lake Arts Center. Many former SLAC participants have become world-class performers, teachers, and artists. The Shell Lake Arts Center provides several concerts throughout the summer, including several concerts at the Shell Lake Pavilion in Memorial Park.
