Take a family vacation that is fun and out-of-the-ordinary. Families can enroll for Swedish language immersion sessions at various times during the year and access the same rich setting, authentic menus, and daily routines that are offered during the summer sessions for young people.

Family programs are great preparation for a family trip abroad or for a child's summer experience at the Villages. Explore family

heritage or learn about an entirely new culture! The best part is simply being together in a beautiful setting where you can reinforce the importance of being a good citizen in our global community.

Immersed in beautiful surroundings and Swedish-language conversation, both children and grown-ups absorb lessons about the larger world and the value of learning language. Family programs allow grandparents, parents, children, aunts, uncles and cousins the opportunity to explore Swedish language and culture and to share experiences and build memories that will last a lifetime.

Program Types

Our April Family weekend is a stand-alone program that welcomes families of all shapes and sizes. Our July program runs concurrently with our summer youth programs and is a great way for your whole family to experience the fun of a summer at Sjölunden.

Location

Swedish family programs are located at our architecturally authentic Language Village site near Bemidji, Minn.
