- This program is designed for youth in 3rd through 5th grade.
Let's explore the concept of friluftsliv by spending time together celebrating the outdoors. We will connect with each other and nature through walks and activities, observations and explorations, and lots of fun - all outside! There will be time to relax and enjoy the beauty around us while also learning how to live in harmony with the plants and animals in our midst. Friluftsliv is not just an activity, it's the idea of living a full outdoor life with nature at the core. Our weekly outdoor excursions will help us connect in nature to bring more peace, balance, and well-being to our lives! Plan to be outdoors in Heritage Park or on nearby trails as much as possible. Please dress for all weather.
Vesterheim Folk Art School will offer a walking school bus for any Norsk Skole registrants coming from Carrie Lee or the middle school. If your child would like to "ride" the walking school bus, please email FAS staff directly.
