Want to help?
There's something to be said about good company! If you're interested in helping to build or to run activities, please read on!
If you're handy with tools and construction (or want to learn), we invite you to come help us build the ice shanty! We suggest a three hour-shift on any of the following days, but you're welcome to stay longer or leave early (just let us know that you're coming). Tasks may include cutting lumber, hammering, installing carpet, painting, or paper mache. Building will be done on private property, so please respect the space. Snacks are always welcome!

If you've worked at any of the Nordic Villages and are interested in helping to run activities in your language, please join us! This could involve crafts, singing, language games, sports, evening programs, and more!
We're asking people to sign up for 3 1/2 hour shifts (2 volunteers per shift), so you'll get a chance to spend time at the other shanties too! You're, of course, welcome to sign up for more than one shift.
If you are a villager (sixteen or older) and interested in helping to run activities (along with 2 former or current staff members), please let us know! Contact Magna at firstname.lastname@example.org, providing your village/village name, contact info, and date you're interested in volunteering.
