About Himmelbjerget Camp
Danish summer camps in the Pacific Northwest help preserve Danish culture through younger generations while the campers have a ton of fun! Himmelbjerget promotes skills of leadership, teamwork, cultural awareness, and cultural acceptance. Camp is also a great way to make new friends! Each year Himmelbjerget overlaps with the Danish American Cultural Retreat. This allows families to spend the weekend together in the beautiful surroundings!
Meet our new Camp Director
“Hello everyone! I am honored to be the new director for Himmelbjerget Danish Camp and I look forward to growing even closer with this amazing group of Danes here in the Pacific Northwest. I am currently living in Spokane, WA while I finish up my schooling, but a piece of my heart lives alongside the Columbia River Gorge at Menucha. I cannot wait until it is safe for us to hold camp in person, again, but until then, we will work our hardest to make virtual camp an experience just as unforgettable.”Kayti Hilzinger, Himmelbjerget Camp Director
