Camp school when spring is in full swing - until the colors come in autumn

The Norwegian Mountain School can offer camp school stays with open field programs in the period May - June and August - September - October. The goal of the camp school stay is to give the students positive nature experiences, increased interest in nature and joy when traveling in the mountains. No special prior knowledge is required to be able to attend camp school at Den Norske Fjellskolen Rondeheim.  

 

Tours
Throughout the year, we plan trips of various lengths and degrees of difficulty. The program is constantly adapted to the students' skills. Høvringen has a stable climate. If it should still be rough, we pull down into sheltered forest terrain. 

Proper selection and treatment of mountain equipment
We place great emphasis on the students learning to choose the right equipment and how this equipment should be treated. Among other things, clothing and packing of sacks are taught.

To be able to travel in the mountains, it is important to know the use of maps and compasses. It is taught indoors and practiced outdoors in the terrain.
