Today’s post features Sophie M.’s camp entry about her productive and educational summer stay at Sjolunden Swedish Language Village:“Through Concordia College in Moorhead Minnesota, I have had the privilege to attend their Swedish Immersion Camp in Bemidji, Minnesota for six years. This past year was my first year as a high school credit student, which means I earned high school credit for my language learning. With 180 hours of instruction in Swedish, I passed with an A! After five years of being a two-week camper, I was finally a “big kid”. Sjolunden is always the most special part of my year, but this first year filled with learning, fun, and lifelong friends will always stand out in my mind. This camp is a passion, a love, and my second home. It will always be a part of me and my childhood. This camp means the world to me, and I can’t wait to be a counselor in four years! My friends from all around the world and the counselors from all around the world make it all worth it. I love my summer camp, and can’t wait to go back next year!”
