Swedish Historical Society presents Camp Sweden
Online Staff Report
The Swedish Historical Society of Rockford will be offering children between the ages of 6-12 years old the opportunity to attend Camp Sweden at the Erlander Home Museum from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. July 23-27 or July 30-Aug. 3.
The children will be able to learn about past and present Swedish customs, language and history, make and taste Swedish foods, experience hands-on arts and craft activities, enjoy music and theater, and participate in fun-filled field trips while making new friends and having fun.
This year’s camp leader, Emeli Jansson, is a Swedish native currently living in Gothenburg, Sweden. She is an enthusiastic, playful teacher who loves singing, dancing and theater.
