Adventures in Sweden Camp

October 24, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

The Swedish American Museum will offer one day camps during the teachers strike.

Students will learn about Greta Thunberg, Buzz Aldrin, The Vikings, Pippi Longstocking, Swedish traditions and more! Activities will be based on these themes and will include literature, games and crafts. There will also be free choice activities which will include time in the Children’s Museum.

Camp is best suited for Kindergarten-Fifth Grade, but we welcome older students as well. A limited number of partial scholarships are available. Please email Stacey Nyman at snyman@samac.org for a scholarship application or if you have any questions.

Registration is now open and if school is in session on a day that you registered for camp, a refund minus $5 processing fee will be issued.

Any campers registered for Thursday Oct. 24, 2019 will be joining a previously scheduled 4th grade school tour from 10 a.m.-noon. Campers will be with myself and/or Museum staff along with their counselors at all times during the tour. The tour is about early European immigration (push/pull factors, the journey to America and Ellis Island). We will be exploring our Dream of America exhibit along with the Brunk Children’s Museum of Immigration. Once the tour concludes, regular camp activities will resume.

Please register here and remember to add the date of the camp you are registering for.
