Icelandic Camp Scholarship

Scholarships are available for qualifying young people to attend the Icelandic Camp in Gimli, Manitoba.

For over 30 years Icelandic Camp has been bringing youth of Icelandic descent together to celebrate their shared heritage. Over eight days the campers are immersed in all things Icelandic. From language lessons to viking crafts to writing their own saga the campers start to develop a love of their Icelandic ancestry.


Located just two miles north of Gimli, Manitoba, Canada along the banks of the beautiful Lake Winnipeg, Icelandic Camp provides a safe place for campers to make new friends, visit with old ones and create memories that will last a life time.
