Language camp starts soon, register today!


Thu, May 29th, 2014
Posted in All Education

Norwegian Ridge Language Camp began in 2012 as an opportunity for students of all ages to have a high quality experience of learning Norwegian language, culture and traditions, as well as participate in sports activities and traditional folk arts instruction. The 2014 theme is “Here and Back Again – Celebrating the Bicentenary of Norway’s Constitution.” Session One is June 9-13 and Session Two is June 16-20 in Spring Grove, Minn. The first week is for students 4-7, and the second is for all age 8 and older.

Upon registration each student is sent an authentic looking Norwegian passport. When they arrive at NRLC, they check their bags with a host family, have their passport stamped, and begin the process of exposure to the language.

We will be offering traditional arts experiences again according to registration choices. Students will hear storytellers tell Norse stories and they will learn Norwegian mythology, and there will be opportunities for role-playing favorite myths. They will also create their own Norwegian dictionaries expanding them daily as they learn words and phrases. In preparation for coming to camp they will choose and bring photos and pictures of words they want to know in Norwegian, and those will go into their dictionaries as well.
