Velkommen til sommeren ! 

Himmelbjerget Danish Camp offers a unique opportunity for kids 10 to 18 to learn about the history, people, culture, language and traditions of Denmark at a week- long overnight summer camp in the Columbia Gorge.

Camp next summer is  June 21 – 27, 2020.
Early bird registration opens in February.

A Day at Camp

Danish culture, summer time fun
and life long friendships

Language Classes

Starting with the basics for our youngest campers to conversational Danish with native speakers.

Family time

We divide our campers into families, and every evening we spend time together on crafts, skits. 

Get outside

Lawn games, swimming, Danish dancing or just running around the woods of beautiful Menucha.

A slice of Denmark in the Columbia Gorge

 While the real  “Sky Mountain” is a hill located in Søhøjlandet, central Denmark, for over 25 years, our Himmelbjerget has been hosted by Menucha Retreat in Corbett, Oregon.

Private, beautiful and full of tradition, there’s really no other place in the world like it.

Fun fact: perched 655 feet above the Columbia George, Himmelbjerget Danish Camp is 173 feet higher than our namesake which is Denmark’s highest point.

Proud to be a program of the
