Want to bring the family on a Sjölunden adventure, but can't make it for a whole week? Our Family Weekend is a perfect choice! Join our experienced staff for a Swedish language and culture journey that is great for preparing villagers for an extended stay during a youth program, getting ready for a family trip abroad or just finding a reason to spend time together.
Family weekends run Thursday-Sunday, providing four days of fun, games, food and language learning for all ages and all language levels.
Adults and children spend time together at meals, evening programs, dancing, singing and enjoying the outdoors. But there are also special times set aside where kids get to be kids together, learning language through fun songs, games and play while the adults take a language or culture class, learn a new craft or visit with new friends.
