Camp Sweden set for late July at Erlander Home Museum
Online Staff Report
The Swedish Historical Society of Rockford will once again offer all children between the ages of 6 and 12 years old the opportunity to attend Camp Sweden at the Erlander Home Museum July 22-26 or July 29-Aug. 2 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Through a grant donation from the Swedish Council of America, 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.
Camp Sweden is $100 per child for non-members, $75 per child for members and $50 for each additional sibling.
This year’s camp leader, Emeli Jansson, is a Swedish native living in Gothenburg. She is an enthusiastic, playful teacher who loves singing, dancing, and theater.
