Comin’ to Amerika
July 18 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Come experience what life was like for Swedish immigrants in Minnesota in the 1800s! Children dress up in period clothing and work together to build a new life in Amerika — learning about immigration stories, honoring Swedish heritage, engaging in dances and songs, making crafts, and touring all the buildings at Gammelgården.
Open to children entering first grade through sixth grade.
Children should bring their own lunch and water bottle. Lemonade and a snack are provided in the afternoon.
Parents drop off their children between 9:45-10 a.m., with the program beginning at 10 a.m. Children are encouraged to dress up in costumes reflective of pioneers and/or early Swedish immigrants.
The cost is $75 per child and includes all supplies and materials.
The camp is limited to 20 children. Pre-registration is required. Register early to guarantee a spot for your child by going to https://www.eventbrite.com/e/comin-to-amerika-tickets-595024092077
