Culture Camp 2018

Czech and Slovak Sokol Minnesota has a tradition of supporting educational, cultural, social, and athletic activities. This year we are offering our 21st day camp to boys and girls 7 to 14 years old from 8:50 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. on June 18th – 22nd at our C.S.P.S Hall. Our program provides campers with the opportunity to learn about Czech and Slovak heritages. It fosters personal growth through cultural enrichment and social and recreational activities. We welcome campers from all backgrounds.

Register early! Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis with the 2018 session limited to 40 campers. Sokol members and their close relatives (children and grandchildren) are given preference. Registration will close as soon as all group slots are filled. Campers may register with one buddy. Please pro-rate/adjust the daily fee, if your child will attend a shorter camp session.
