Our Swedish Adult Week includes Swedish language and culture lessons, activity time, free time and a healthy dose of outdoor activities to be COVID-19 safe. Please dress for outdoor weather activities as much of the program, which is often held indoors, will move into the natural surroundings. Returnees can expect some variations of favorite program components for health and safety. Free time offers opportunities for a trip to town, time in the Bibliotek, options for taking walks, enjoying the bastu (sauna) or taking a refreshing nap.

We will follow Minnesota COVID-19 guidelines for safety. For questions about pandemic safe housing plans, please contact health@cord.edu.
