Tell me more...

Fly into Oslo ready for the orientation days with the Norwegian 4H, this will include what to expect whilst in Norway and some sight-seeing.  It will also give you the chance to meet the other incoming exchangees.  You will probably have two or three host families while in Norway.  You may be expected to help out with some farm chores, and will be included in family activities and social outings.  Norway is beautiful and dramatic, with very variable climate and landscapes, there is so much to discover!  You will find the Norwegians welcoming and interested in you.  You may be surprised to find how small many of the farms are, with dairy herds of 20 or 30 cows still being quite common.

Nordic Camp

You will be invited to attend the Nordic Camp to coincide with your stay on 21st - 28th July (participation optional) – there will be a cost to cover your travel which will be confirmed closer to the time. The camp gathers between 1000 and 1500 youths in the biggest event of the year in 4H Norway. The entire camp is an outdoor one and you will sleep in a tent or lavvo. You will travel and stay with your host county in the camp. The hosts will provide you with the equipment you need (sleeping bag, tent, mattress). Remember to ask for this as soon as you can so the families can locate the right things for you. You can look forward to lots of exciting activities, trips, walks, games, concerts, competitions, sunny weather, rainy weather, lots of new friends and valuable memories. See attachment for program and information about the activities you will participate in. 

*Norwegian 4H will contact the selected member directly with regards to participation and fee for the Nordic Camp.
