One-week Youth Exploration sessions are a perfect introduction to Skøvsoen for villagers ages 7-15.

Villagers in one-week sessions explore language and culture through an introductory immersion experience featuring games, sports, crafts, music, outdoor activities, etc. Emphasis is on listening comprehension and speaking. Open to all proficiency levels. Villagers during this session participate in International Day.

Lego and Lego Robotics, Danish-Style: DB31 June 25-30, 2018

Combine your enthusiasm for Lego and Lego Robotics with immersion in Danish language and culture and learn about the country where Lego come from.  Build with Lego and program Lego robots to complete various challenges – all inspired by your own imagination.  No prior experience with Danish language, computer programming or robots necessary; just come with an excitement for learning.  We will use the latest Lego Mindstorms EV3 software for those villagers who would like to take this experience back with them to their local robotics programs.  While the emphasis of this program will be on building and programming with Lego, there will be plenty of time for regular Skovsøen village activities throughout the day.  

Music is an integral part of Skovsøen.
