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 in 2012 &2013. 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.
