The Swedish Historical Society is excited to announce the return of Camp Sweden! This summer, have your child experience an immersion program in Swedish language, culture and so much more!
At Camp Camp Sweden we... • Learn about past and present Swedish language & customs • Make and taste Swedish foods • Experience hands on arts and craft activities • Enjoy music and games • Tour the Erlander Home Museum in the historic Haight Village of Rockford
Camp Sweden is supported by the JulFest Fund
Cost of Camp Sweden is $100 for Swedish Historical Society members and $125 for non-members. Please fill out a registration form for each child attending camp. Children will pack a snack and water bottle for each day. Please reserve your spots early, as space is limited! All payments and registration forms are due by the first day of camp. Children must also register for the entire week of camp.
We are very excited to introduce this year's camp leader! Emeli Jansson is a Swedish native currently living in Gothenburg. She is a self described enthusiastic, playful teacher who loves singing, dancing and theater. Emeli has experience working with children and will bring her adventuresome spirit, education, and work experience to Camp Sweden. She received her International Baccalaureate degree in 2007, and has gone on to further study art, culture and drama. We are thrilled to have her enthusiasm to enhance the camp and add the element of theater. She loves meeting new people and is excited about the opportunity to come to Rockford and share her Swedish culture in a fun, engaging children's day-camp adventure.
