Building upon the success of West Coast CUE Rock Star Teacher Camps in California, for the first time ever CUE Rock Star Teacher Camps will be taking place around the country. Join us for three days of hands-on learning and collaborative conversations in beautiful Saugatuck, Michigan July 23-25, 2014, for the Best of MACUL Presents CUE Rock Star Teacher Camp Saugatuck, Michigan.

Saugatuck, nestled along the Lake Michigan shore two hours from Chicago was recently named by Lonely Planet as America's #1 domestic travel destination. Often called "Martha's Vineyard of the Midwest", the area boasts a bustling arts scene, quaint shopping, dining,  boating, sport fishing, and unspoiled wilderness areas of towering dunes and remote beaches.

Conference Format

All CUE Rock Star Teacher Camps are purposely designed, focused, small group everts that have three items in common:
All three days consist of two, two-hour sessions allowing attendees to "dig in deep" and really get to know their topic and build resources to use next year.  Morning sessions are repeated in the afternoon so that attendees have two different opportunities to attend a workshop.
  • Small Presenter to Attendee Ratios
CUE Rock Star events are built so that there is one presenter for every ten attendees, and the events sell out at 60-70 attendees.  This allows participants to get hands-on support and learn directly from knowledgeable educators.
  • Time for Collaboration and Networking
We purposely start late, end early, and take extended lunches so that all attendees have ample opportunities to collaborate and network as part of a learning community.  

"Insanely Great" Staff: Check out the amazing faculty that has been assembled for Rock Star Saugatuck, some of the top minds in edtech from across Michigan, the Midwest, and America.
