Today, the Folk School is used as the parish hall for the Danebod congregation as well as for various committee meetings. The campus is utilized for many summer camps, family reunions and retreats.

Danebod Folk Meeting

The Danebod Folk Meeting is a four-day residential folk school experience affirming the joy of living through enlightenment, fellowship, song and dance, faith and worship in the context of a Danish-American tradition. The Danebod Folk Meeting is held in August at the Danebod Campus in Tyler, Minnesota.

The programming includes lectures on interesting and varied topics, singing, worship, stories, dancing, socializing — and great food!

Danebod Family Camps

Since 1947, Danebod Family Camps have become their own tradition and have grown to include two one-week camps held every summer in June and July. Fellowship extends to everyone who comes to camp welcoming new ideas, experiences, and traditions.

Each year the Danebod camp experience grows richer for the participation of all who have come before. People—families, single parents, grandparents, retirees, singles, and young adults and children of all ages—come to share their traditions and gain new life experiences.

Danebod Folk Camp

Danebod Folk Camp is an annual gathering of friends, families and friends-to-be that takes place in August at the Danebod Folk School campus.

The camp has its roots in a folk school philosophy embracing informal, lifelong education that was developed and championed by N.F.S. Grundtvig, a nineteenth century Danish philosopher/poet/clergyman. Soon after arriving, the Danes who settled Tyler built a three-story folk school and dormitory to promote this “living for learning” philosophy and to encourage the development of thoughtful and enlightened citizens.
