Youth and Family

Vesterheim’s Youth and Family programming encompasses both after-school classes for youth as well as intergenerational events and camps. After-school hours are filled with fun and educational programming in rosemaling, fiber, wood carving, forging, and Norwegian language and culture. Instructors in Youth and Family classes, camps, and events share a passion for youth education and the highest level of achievement in their respective fields.

Vesterheim’s outdoor youth programs are supported in part by a generous gift to the Vesterheim Annual Fund from the “All of Us” Research Program through the Gundersen Health System Foundation. For more information about this research, visit
