More About the Danish-filled Days of Dane Camp
Dane Camp is a mix of indoor and outdoor activities. Children are taken on outings to nearby parks to learn Danish sports and games. For meals everyone sits together in true Danish fashion, as they practice and discuss what they are learning. Kids are introduced to traditional Danish food.
Camp ends at 4:00 pm each day, except Friday, when a special open house and program for families will be held from 3:30 pm to 4:00 pm. Remember, before and after camp activities are also available for a small extra fee.
Northwest Danish Association hosts and sponsors this summer day camp every year during the first week of August. Sign up for our e-bulletin to stay up to date on Dane Camp and other NWDA programs.
