Calling all future campers – there are still spots available in this year's Summer Day Camp program at the American Swedish Institute! Through story-telling, cooking, art and imaginative play, kids will have fun exploring Minneapolis’ only castle while learning about Nordic history and culture.

Our one-day camps run on Thursdays in July and August with Vikings, Pippi and Nordic Cooking & Culture themes. New this year is the four-day Sommar på Slottet (Swedish immersion camp) in late June, and for our littlest campers – the Viking Voyagers Preschool Camp runs on Wednesdays in July with morning and afternoon sessions.

More information about all of our Summer Day Camps, including registration links, can be found here: https://www.asimn.org/programs-education/youth-and-family-programs/summer-day-camps/summer-day-camps

Truly amazing. (Over 100 years before we started publishing in downtown Manhattan, 1872) Kudos to forward thinking Swedes!

The Swedish press freedom act turns 250 years in 2016. Looking back, some people and policies stand out as eager defenders of free speech.

One of the best ways to allow your kids to immerse in a Swedish experience stateside!

Reflect back on your first summer at camp. Arriving through the Village gates, going through "customs", and experiencing the butterflies of a new/different place & language. But soon, all those worries floated away and you made friends that would last a lifetime, all while learning a different language! Can you help ensure that potential villagers today can have a similar camp experience with a donation of $25 to the Passport Fund today?
