What did you do on
your summer vacation?
Katherine (Odile) and two of her children,
Emily (Chloe) and Nicholas (Niko), attended Swiss Camp in
Bemidji, MN. The camp, sponsored by Concordia Language
Villages, focuses on a language
immersion program in which campers become “citizens” of
another country. This includes picking out new authentic
names, trading in our dollars for Swiss francs, and
eliminating all “English” contraband. During the week at
camp, The Swiss Family Johnson studied
Italian, German, and French, learned about the
culture and even participated in several Swiss themed
activities. The week long session also included authentic
Swiss goodies like chocolate fondues, wood-fired pizza,
and bratwurst. It was MAGNIFIQUE!
