Himmelbjerget Danish Language Camp

Portland, OR

Himmelbjerget Danish Language Camp is a week-long language and culture experience in the mountains of Oregon. Three levels of language are taught for roughly ten hours during the week. Language instruction is complemented with cultural, historical, and heritage instruction, including dance, crafts, and songs. Some 55-60 students attend, with about 15 counselors. The program fosters a sense of what it means to be Danish and how Denmark and the United States differ.
