Join us for this Nordic smörgåsbord of friends, family and fun!

Welcoming all families to our brand-new Nordic Family Fun Week! This week of family immersion will focus on Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish language, culture and life. The program will be hosted at our culturally and architecturally authentic Finnish and Swedish sites, surrounded by the North Woods on Turtle River Lake near Bemidji, Minn., with visits to our neighboring Norwegian site as well!

Our talented staff will guide families on an interactive week to discover Nordic language and cultures through activities, food, music and direct instruction. You can choose to focus on one language or sample all four. Throughout the week all participants will also enjoy delicious favorites from our Nordic kitchen.

Danish
In addition to opportunities to focus on language learning, families can enjoy fællessang (singing together), learning to bake traditional Danish rugbrød (rye bread), a hyggelig evening of Danish family films as well as crafting, sauna and nights around the bål.

Finnish
Among many activities during the day families can engage in mölkky, sauna, and folk dancing. Language lessons will be available to begin learning Finnish or to advance your current skills.

Norwegian
Families will enjoy forays into the life and times of Norwegians past, present and future with norsk, allsang, family-friendly games like boksen går and Viking kubb, stories and tall tales shared around the bål, and visits to Skogfjorden, which will be in session at the same time.

Swedish
Families can explore everything from weaving on a loom to playing brännboll (Swedish baseball), canoeing or baking tasty treats. Adults can sample films by Ingmar Bergman while kids learn dalmålning (traditional painting) or träslöjd (wood carving).

Please post in the discussion area if you have any questions.

Join us this summer to build memories that will last a lifetime!
