Kalevala, Kantele, & Kaverit!
Published: July 12, 2019
Villagers take on another day of learning Finnish and Finnish culture!
In the morning, our ohjaajat (counselors) put on a very entertaining show about Kalevala. Then villagers were asked to use watercolors to paint out some of the scenes!
During kultturihetki (culture moment) villagers learned about the history of Finland's national instrument; the Kantele. They were then given some time to learn how to play it and were able to perform a song together as a group!
In the afternoon, villagers took to their pelit ja projektit groups to learn some more Finnish!
For our iltaohjelma (evening program) we had mökki-ilta (cabin evening)! Each cabin got to choose an activity that they wanted to do all together. It was a nice way to bond and take a pause from the usual momentum during the day.
Our last week of the summer is passing by so quickly. Days like this remind us why we love our villagers and Salolampi so much!
