Jeffrey Epstein met his first known underage rape victim at an exclusive $38,000-a-year Michigan summer arts camp to which he donated significant sums of money, according to a new book.

The victim was 13 years old at the time she met the convicted pedophile in 1994 at Interlochen Center for the Arts, a boarding school located in the secluded woods of northern Michigan.

Epstein and his close friend, Ghislaine Maxwell, frequented the camp and ‘befriended,’ the young girl, according to Miami Herald reporter Julie K. Brown.

Brown is the author of an upcoming book, Perversion of Justice: The Jeffrey Epstein Story, detailing her years-long investigation into Epstein’s sex trafficking operation.

‘The girl had just lost her father, a classical music conductor, so she was still grieving and vulnerable,’ Brown writes in the book, which was excerpted by Fox News.

‘The camp maintains that they’ve never received a complaint about Epstein, and the woman, who is now living in California, has not spoken publicly.’

‘In a sworn deposition, Epstein’s former butler, [Juan] Alessi, mentioned that the girl often visited Epstein’s Florida mansion and in later years, her name appears on the flight logs of his plane,’ she added.

In January of last year, an unidentified woman filed a lawsuit alleging that she met Epstein when she was 13 under similar circumstances.

‘The woman said she was sitting alone on a bench between classes when Epstein and Maxwell approached her, telling her that they were arts patrons who wanted to give talented young artists like her scholarships,’ Brown writes.

The lawsuit accuses Epstein and Maxwell of asking her questions about her background. Eventually, Epstein asks for the girl’s phone number.

He then contacted the girl’s mother, telling her that he ‘helped young talent.’ Epstein then invited the girl and her mother to his mansion in Palm Beach.

‘Over the next several months, Epstein and Maxwell tried to groom the thirteen-year-old girl. He told her to call him her “godfather,” and Maxwell befriended her like an older sister, the suit claims,’ Brown writes.

‘They took her to the movies, went shopping, and invited her to spend more and more time at the estate.

‘Soon, the sexual comments started.’

Epstein is said to have paid for the girl’s music lessons. He also gave her mother some cash.

Over the course of several years, Epstein assaulted the girl, according to the book. If she resisted, Epstein would scold her.

Epstein is alleged to have moved the girl and her mother to a New York City apartment. He also paid for her to attend a private school.

‘In 1999, when she was eighteen, she finally left him and moved away to start a new life. For a while, Epstein repeatedly called and berated her for not appreciating him,’ Brown writes.

‘But soon, the calls stopped. By then Epstein had moved on to new, younger prey.’

Last year, it was reported that a cabin in Interlochen where Epstein and Maxwell allegedly abused one of their victims was available for holiday rental.

The cabin in northern Michigan, which was once known as the Jeffrey Epstein Scholarship Lodge, was renamed the Green Lake Lodge after Epstein pleaded guilty in 2007 to soliciting underage girls, the Mirror reported.

Interlochen is one of Michigan’s most expensive private schools. Tuition alone costs some $38,000 while boarding costs nearly $60,000.

The lodge was listed in Epstein’s notorious ‘Little Black Book’ that included the names of some of his famous friends and associates, including Donald Trump, Alan Dershowitz, Harvey Weinstein’s brother Bob Weinstein, and Courtney Love.

Epstein was known to visit the cabin at least once a year as part of an arrangement with a nearby fine arts school for children

The book also had the names of two students who had attended Interlochen.

Epstein’s address book had the entries ‘Michigan Home’ and ‘Epstein Lodge’ as well as the PO box and address for Interlochen and three local phone numbers.

From 1990 until 2003, Epstein funded the lodge as a donation to the school. Former students at Interlochen said they recalled Epstein and Maxwell appearing on campus.

Epstein stayed at the lodge for a week in August 2000.

The school said it has no record of any complaint lodged against Epstein.

It has long claimed that the school’s ‘policies would not have permitted Mr. Epstein any unsupervised access to students.’

Not only did Epstein fund the scholarship lodge, but he also hosted events for Interlochen alumni at his New York office as well as his seven-story townhouse.
