New Faces and Keys in Hidden Places!
Published: July 2, 2019
A big, warm welcome to our newest villagers! We are so glad you are here at the paras paikka olla (best place to be)!
Before the arrival of our villagers, Salolampi staff and our tehos (credit villagers) worked together to make over one hundred korvapuusteja. It is always good to have a surplus of korvapuusti on hand here at Salolampi.
In the afternoon, our new villagers began to arrive!
Once parents left and villagers completed their check-in checklist, we hopped right into an activity! Villagers had the option of making nimilaput (name tags), playing jalkapalloa (soccer), or playing a card game.
After orientation, it was time for our very first iltaohjelma (evening program). Villagers participated in an "un-escape" room simulation. They were assigned with the task of finding the keys to their cabins through games and other obstacles. In each game, if they were successful, they would receive a word as a clue to finding their key.
It was a successful opening day at Salolampi! We can't wait to see where the rest of this week takes us! Be sure to follow along on our blog and social media platforms!
