Sons of Norway Dist V - Masse Moro Norwegian Camp

Our Program

What campers can expect when they come to Masse Moro is to let go of their American culture for two weeks and learn about the culture and heritage of Norway. It's a great opportunity for them to take a break from technology and video games, and to make new friends and learn about another culture. Campers will participate in a set of daily activities which include learning Norwegian camp songs, taking a Norwegian vocabulary class suited to their ability level, team sports like soccer, exposure to a variety of traditional Norwegian folk arts, and Viking sports which culminate in the Viking Olympics at the end of the camp session. Check out our Daily Schedule.  Masse Moro is a "sleep away" camp, meaning that campers stay on site for the full 2 weeks.

Eligibility

Masse Moro is open to both boys and girls between the ages of 9-15 years old. (Campers must be 9 as of the first day of camp. No exceptions.) A two-week sleep-away camp,  campers stay in cabins (furnished with bunk beds) along with 2-3 staff members and an additional 9-12 other campers. This small cozy atmosphere creates a bonded tight-knit cabin that creates a home away from home where campers feel safe and comfortable. 

Not a Sons of Norway member? Not a problem. Sons of Norway membership is also not a requirement to attend our camp, but one of the many great benefits of membership is tuition assistance for the Masse Moro program. The money you could potentially save in tuition for sending one child to our camp for one session would be enough to cover annual membership dues for approximately the next 5 years, so it is certainly something to be considered.
