Summer DANE CAMP for Little Vikings!
First week of August each year
(For ages 10-18 see our other camp: Himmelbjerget)
Northwest Danish Association hosts and sponsors a summer day camp every year during the first week of August. The camp involves five fun days of Danish culture and language in an atmosphere designed for children ages 5 to 10.
Danish Language and Culture
Join us for exciting days of crafts and activities related to a rotating theme. Camp is led by Danish teacher, Pia Beetham.
The 2018 theme is: COPENHAGEN!
Learn about The Little Mermaid and other fairy tales from Denmark.
Dane Camp includes:
-Daily Danish language and culture lessons
-Danish crafts, sports and games
-Traditional Danish food
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. See the 2017 Dane Camp Brochure for more details.
