WEEK 4 - August 5th to August 10th

Scandinavian Scouting Week

Välkommen till Skandinavien!

We're including the beautiful countries of Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland under our Nordic umbrella of ‘Scandinavia’ who better to show us the way than loveable Moomin and his friends.

Topics are fresh and exciting, with a huge range from Hans Christian Andersen, Tolkien, Moomin and Pippi Longstocking to Lego.

As well as some wild adventures with Vikings and magic monsters, our older children will also take a look at some Scandinavian styling through the eyes of some of the best textile designers. The children will have great fun dining at a Viking style buffet and doing karaoke with ABBA ☺
