There are still openings at Swedish Camp for your children this summer, and still time for a unique experience that is close to home that will not break your budget.
Swedish Language & Culture Camp will be held Aug. 12-16 from 9:30 a.m. to noon at the West Riverside School in Cambridge. Campers, ages 5-13 (must have completed Kindergarten) will have lessons in Swedish language and culture through food, crafts, stories, songs, games and folk dance.
For the past 24 years, this camp has been taught by instructors Valorie Arrowsmith and Kathy Olson. Classes and activities are held in a log cabin (built by Swedish immigrants from Jämtland in 1859) and the West Riverside School (a one-room schoolhouse from 1898). Registration is $55 per student ($45 if parent or grandparent is a current member of ICHS).
Pre-School Swedish Language and Culture Camp is offered Aug. 13-15, from 9:30 a.m. to noon and is open to ages 4 and 5 (must be toilet trained). Registration is $40 per student ($30 if parent or grandparent is a current member of ICHS).
