The Scandinavian School offers 4 weeks of Scandinavian Summer Camp open to all Scandinavian children in the Bay Area. The camp offers the perfect combination of San Francisco and Scandinavia including field trips, organic lunch, and of course Scandinavian language and culture.

We will accept applications from new, current and former students, with priority given to students currently enrolled in any of our part- or full-time programs. Because of the short sessions, students should come with knowledge of at least one Scandinavian language.

For more details contact Pia Persson at ppersson@scandinavianschool.org or 415-665-7632.

Language and Cultural Camp (2-10 years old)

Mon-Fri (5 days) during 4 weeks

The language and cultural program will focus on language learning through play, art projects and different themes. The Scandinavian cultures will set a frame for the activities and the children will celebrate Swedish and Danish Midsummer, discover different Scandinavian foods and become familiar with Scandinavian arts and crafts.

For the younger children we try to keep summer camp similar to our usual preschool routines so our students feel at home, adding themes for excitement and to take advantage of the smaller groups. Like our core preschool program, the camp includes an organic, vegetarian home-cooked lunch plus two snacks, rest time, project time and outdoor play.

You can sign up for the core program from 9AM-3PM or add extended hours (8AM-5.30PM). It is possible to mix the two camps the school is offering by i.e. booking one week at the Outdoor Bus Camp and two weeks at the Cultural Camp.
