Norgesskolen, a two and a half week summer-school in Telemark, is run every year by the Norway-America Association  (former Norwegians Worldwide).

Due to the Covid19 pandemic, Norgesskolen 2021 is cancelled. We are planning for a fresh start the summer of 2022.  Follow Norgesskolen on Facebook.

We want our students to:

  • learn and practice the Norwegian language.
  • increase their interest in the Norwegian language, culture and society.
  • develop their knowledge and interest in Norway.
  • participate in different sports and outdoor activities.
  • experience an international environment and learn to overcome cultural barriers in a positive way.
  • develop a network of other children/youth from around the world.
  • experience a Norwegian summer.
  • develop the Norwegian part of their identity.

Who can join Norgesskolen?

  • Students aged 9 -18 living outside Norway – all over the world.
  • Students with previous knowledge of Norwegian as well as beginners.
  • Norwegian citizens as well as non-Norwegian citizens.
  • Norwegian children/youth that want to improve their Norwegian and participate in an international environment.

The school takes place at Sagavoll Folkehøyskole in Telemark, a paradise for children and youth. It has a well-equipped sports hall, a football field, climbing wall and bouldering room. The surroundings give plenty of opportunity to go on hikes, go swimming in the river and visit places of historical and cultural importance.
