Twin Cities Day Camp | Ages 4-9
Twin Cities Day Camps are a great introduction to language, and a wonderful precursor to our overnight programs. These programs are held at various locations throughout the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area. Utilizing our unique teaching methods, Twin Cities Day Camps include art, music, games and snacks to introduce the youngest learners to language and culture.
2020 Theme: Shark Tank!
Fun and imagination are the key to unlocking a great camp this week! Campers will use innovation and creativity to design an invention and make a pitch to project-hungry investors! Working in teams, these hands-on entrepreneurs will sell their ideas in creative ways – perhaps dancing, painting or rapping their way to an investment deal. And, it will all happen in Norwegian! All language levels are welcome, as activities are designed with both new and more advanced speakers in mind.
