A Typical Dane Camp Year
When there is no pandemic, Dane Camp is normally held in-person at the Seattle Danish Center each August. 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.
