Swedish language lessons and songs.

 Valorie Arrowsmith taught for many years as part of both Hostfest in the Schools and Scandinavian Youth Camp in Minot. She works with many Nordic groups assisting children and adults on their journey to learn more about their culture and heritage through language and culture day camps, concerts, Nordic touring group arrangements, host home opportunities, school residencies, worship services and traditional festivals such as Swedish Midsummer and Norwegian St. Knut’s Day. She is a cultural teacher and brings language and culture day camps to many communities. She believes in life-long learning and started several adult Nordic language study circles in East Central Minnesota. Currently she is studying Finnish and Norwegian.
