Nordic Cool Weekends
Nordic Cool: Outdoor Adventure Weekend
Join us for the Inaugural Nordic Cool Outdoor Adventure Weekend. If there is one thing that the Nordic countries are known for, it is their love of the outdoors! Beginning on Friday evening, participants will begin preparing themselves for the expedition on the following day by packing our gear and identifying what additional training is needed for a successful adventure. That training will then be covered through workshops on Saturday morning before we head out for an overnight trip. The team will experience the nature of our beautiful site up close. Carrying everything we need on our backs, we will navigate the trail, build a shelter, and prepare our evening meal together out under the open sky.
And this won’t be just any old campfire meal! Participants will learn how to make two quality meals over an open fire. In addition, participants will enjoy three authentic Nordic meals prepared by the Concordia Language Village culinary masters as well as some tasty treats.
This is the perfect chance to test out your gear in the field while experiencing an adventure close to home. Keep in mind that the Nordic countries really embrace nature and the expedition will take place rain or shine! As they say in Norway, there’s no such thing as bad weather… only bad clothing!
At the end of the weekend, everyone will leave with wonderful memories and many new-found friends plus a piece of gear to help them on their next adventure.
Nordic Cool: Virtual Holiday Weekend
Let's gather virtually to create delicious treats and handmade crafts! We will meet together on the evening of December 11 to get to know each other, set the tone for the weekend, and make our traditional first craft of the weekend. Then, we'll join back together a few times on Saturday to sample some delicious treats (with the recipes included to make your own at home), create more Nordic crafts, learn a bit about the four different cultures and traditions, and enjoy each other's company before closing out the weekend. We encourage those that have come as a group in the past to still gather together for a friend's weekend and join us virtually as a group.
