The Last Päivä

Published: July 13, 2018

Today was the last full day at Salolampi and we made every moment count! Villagers filled up on a delicious breakfast and then headed out to raise the flag before playing a game to warm up. After their last Suomikoulus, villagers chose between activities like jalkkapallo, board games, frisbee, lautapelejä, learning how to build a fire and more!










After a final swim in the lake and a hot sauna, villagers got dressed up for a "fancy dinner" of lohi and reindeer! Later, we put on a talent show where villagers and staff could perform any talent of their choosing. Villagers ended their night dancing to Finnish music and playing games outside while enjoying every last moment at Salolampi.
