Children and Youth Programs

Please contact our Youth Director, David Champion, at norseherodotus@hotmail.com for more specific information and to RSVP for events where noted.

VIKING ADVENTURES FOR KIDS

This program is designed for the Lodge’s Heritage members, ages up to 15. Families are welcome and encouraged to participate together at all adventures and activities, which generally take place on a Sunday afternoon. Kids will have fun, make some new friends, and learn some very cool things!

For off-site field trips, parents will be responsible for their own children’s transportation/carpool and supervision. At-Lodge activities may be drop-off for age-appropriate children and younger siblings are always welcome with parental involvement. Light snacks will be served during Lodge activities; for field trips, please supply snacks and water. Activities are free and most Adventures last approximately 2 hours. 

RSVP is required for all Adventures, which will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Membership in Grieg Lodge is strongly encouraged for this program and Heritage Members receive first priority when making reservations.
