Ages 7-9

Have you ever wondered what it was like to be a Viking? Join us at the National Nordic Museum to find out! This half-day camp uncovers the daily life of Vikings, and campers will get to think, create, and explore—just like the Vikings did.

*This camp is intended for children aged 7-9. Please contact Kate Dugdale at with any questions.

How to be a Viking includes:

  • How did the Vikings read and write? We’ll spend time this week learning the runic alphabet and carving our own runestones out of clay!
  • Norse mythology will be our inspiration for Day 2 of this camp. We’ll listen to myths together and work on art projects inspired by the Norse gods!
  • At the end of the week, we’ll be joined by a Viking reenactor from the Jorvik Viking Centre, located in York, England. This Viking will teach us everything we need to know about how to survive as a Viking warrior! We’ll spend time this week creating our own helmets and shields to help prepare us for this experience.
