A Typical Year at Dane Camp
Dane Camp is held at the Seattle Danish Center each August. In 2020 the camp was transformed into a virtual camp due to the pandemic, but in 2022, we are so happy to be returning to an in-person format! Dane Camp involves a mix of indoor and outdoor activities related to a rotating theme. Our little Vikings 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 even introduced to traditional Danish food. There is a special open house and program for families during the afternoon on the last day of camp (Friday).
Northwest Danish Association hosts and sponsors this summer day camp. Sign up for our e-bulletin to stay up to date on Dane Camp and other NWDA programs.
