Dag 11 på Skogfjorden


Published: June 22, 2017

Today, our kveldsprogram (evening program) was Velg ditt eget eventyr (Choose your own adventure)! There was a feud between a troll and human family and the deltakere (villagers) got to choose how the problem would be solved throughout the course of the night. Some chose krig (war) and played capture the flag, others chose to solve the problem on their own and the final group chose to work cooperatively and come to a peaceful solution. The first group to finish their task was the fredlig (peaceful) group, so the two families were able to settle their differences and become friends.

Today, we had a picnic and ate kveldsmat (dinner) outside! Our kveldsprogram (evening program) today, was a special concert together with Skovsøen (the Danish language village) and Salolampi (the Finnish language village). We had performances by current villagers and staff, as well as from an earlier staff member, finishing up a U.S. tour with her band! Villagers sat cozily inside with pillows, blankets, and sleeping bags and enjoyed the music as it rained outside. Sol, regn, latter, sang!
