Scandinavian Youth Camp

Scandinavian Youth Camp

Posted: Updated:

Kids in the Minot area have been learning about Vikings for the past 13 years since the start of the Scandinavian Youth camp in 2000.

But this year, the camp had an added element that's never been seen before at the yearly event.

Professional LEGO artist Dan Parker was called in from Seattle to teach the kids how he works with them and teach them about Scandinavian culture at the same time.

So, for the past 2 days, these fourth graders have been working on a big LEGO Vikings ship, that will be on display at this years Hostfest.

Dan says that bringing these building blocks into the camp is an exciting way for kids to expand their creative side, while learning about the Vikings.

(Dan Parker, Professional LEGO Artist) "This is a hands-on way for kids to use their creativity through LEGO. And that appeals to a lot of kids, the imagination, the stacking of pieces, seeing your creation come alive as you plan it out and start building, and the kids are really into it."

(Sam Super) "If you like Legos its one of the best places to go because you just get to build and build and build."

(Andrew Huettl) "It's fun and we're not just sitting around with him telling us how to build and what to build, we're just building."

The kids' LEGO Vikings Ship will be on display at this years Hostfest, which begins this Tuesday.
