Villagers learning in a språkgrupp (language group).

A one-week Youth Exploration program is a great option for younger villagers, or those looking for an introductory experience to Sjölunden.

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, ages 7-14.

Kubb, a Viking lawn bowling game, is a popular outdoor activity that everyone can play.
