The camp has been running for over 30 years and each year it gets a
little bit better! The original camp, under Camp Directors Helen and
Mervin Rogelstad, featured classes in Woodcarving, Rosemaling, and
Hardangersøm. A children's program offered activities for children 12
and under, as well as activities for the entire camp including; Camp
Olympics, a Horseshoe tournament, car rally, BBQ Dinner and pancake
breakfast. Today the camp offers so much more!
The application form, available online, lists the current class
offerings for adults. The program for children and youth has really
expanded to include classes for children ages 4 to 16 years featuring a
variety of Norwegian Cultural classes including Norwegian Language.
Classes are offered Thursday, Friday, and Saturday during the camp. Many
other fun activities are planned from Wednesday evening until Sunday
morning including a BBQ supper and pancake breakfast (all part of the
