Vesterdalen Lodge has several opportunities for young people.
First is our Heritage Camp Scholarship. There are summer youth camps in the northwest that focus on Norwegian heritage... and our lodge provides substantial scholarships so that children and grandchildren of members can take advantage of them. Children 9-15 can learn Norwegian language, customs and skills at these camps. Learn more by clicking here.
We also have several programs each year that kids will find fun - for example, the annual Nordic Fest. We have a number of booths staffed by members that demonstrate Norwegian crafts and (most important for kids) food! They can try lefse (made right on the spot), waffler, rømmegrøt, frukt søppe and many more treats.
There is a special membership classification for young people so that they can join Sons of Norway at no cost. Ask about them!
