Our Site: Skovsøen

Lodging and Accommodations

At our Danish Language Village, cabins are nestled in the woods along with the new weaving/crafts studio library and group activity areas. This site, which we share with Sjölunden, the Swedish village, was developed along the idea of a lovely fishing village.

The Danish village also shares facilities with Salolampi, the Finnish village. We also continue to use our own unique 17th century Danish setting at den danske landsby.

Up to 10 villagers and two counselors reside in each bright and cozy cabin, with separate cabins for boys and girls. Each cabin also offers a space for relaxing and sharing special moments with your cabin mates. There is ample storage space and private restroom and shower facilities are located within each cabin.

Amenities:

  • A traditional lake-side camp setting
  • Weaving/arts and crafts studio
  • Library and cultural house (being built and will be ready by June 2014)
  • Woodworking facilities
  • Den danske landsby
  • Windmill environmental learning center with Danish garden cottage
  • Swimming and sauna facilities
  • Soccer field

Climate

The weather and surroundings in northern Minnesota during our Skovsøen programs mirror the best of summer and landscape of Denmark. Days are usually warm with cooler evenings and the leaves of the birch trees flutter in the summer breezes. When the weather gets on the hotter side, our cabins stay naturally cool.
