Trollhaugen Camp

Website and on Facebook as Trollhaugen Language Arts and Culture Society.  A successful but smaller camp this year because of Covid concerns. On the plus side, Deer Valley staff took on chores usually done by campers, ensuring high cleanliness standards. 

Located at Deer Valley Meadows near Alix, Alberta, this family camp provides a week of  Norwegian language, history, crafts and culture for all ages. On the final day of camp, guests are welcome to view the crafts exhibit, have lunch and enjoy the wind-up program.
