Norwegian Adventure Day CampLocation: Norwegian Language Village on Turtle River Lake near Bemidji, Minn.
Schedule: Tuesday-Friday; 9:00 am - 5:15 pm
With a passport in hand, your child will join a whole new world of adventure at Skogfjorden, the authentic Norwegian Language Village!
Norwegians love to explore — we’ve been doing it for centuries! Explore with us at and see what you find: perhaps a message from the Vikings, a secret bålplass (campfire) for preparing pinnebrød on a stick, perhaps a polar bear, perhaps the nøkken troll under a bridge, or perhaps even the largest paper clip you have ever seen.
Every day is different, but we’ll always be exploring. Most explorations happen outdoors, so come prepared — dressed to go anywhere at any time!
