I am helping coordinate host families for a German girls choir visiting visiting the USA this year as part of the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp International Exchange Program from. The Pamina Girls Choir includes girls from 12-18 years old as well as a few adult chaperons and their conductor. All choir members speak fluent to moderately fluent English and bring spending money to cover their own expenses.
You can visit their website to learn more about the group at:
We are their first stop on a 5 city tour of the states. We are looking for host families for their time here in Middleville. The group will perform a concert in the Village onas part of the Middleville Summer Concert Series. Other than the concert and a get-together night, the rest of the time is spent with the host families. Past hosts have entertained their guests with a wide variety of activities ranging from visiting Lake Michigan beaches, Chicago, Michigan Adventure, and Mackinac Island to adventures closer to home like kayaking the Thornapple or shopping trips to Rivertown Mall.

I hope you will consider volunteering as a host family for one or more choir members. It is a very memorable "short-term" international experience for you and your family. Please feel free to forward this email if you know someone in the community that may be interested.
Please contact me if you are interested in hosting or have any questions.
