We have a lot of activities for all age groups. You can sailing, mountain biking, water sport, music or gastronomy. Some of the activities are divided according to age others are for kids, teenagers, parents as well as grandparents. You can choose one activity each week. Apart from the activities, there will also be assemblies with interesting guest lectures, singing and performances.

The day will start with a morning walk or run for the early birds and after breakfast, there is morning assembly. Until lunch and two hours during the afternoon, there will be activities. Before dinner, there will be time for a shower, relaxing with family and new friends or time to enjoy refreshments in the garden. In the evening, there is free time to enjoy the Danish “hygge” around a fireplace, spend time with activities in the gym or go to the “Café Grownup” when the kids are in bed. 

During the week, it is possible to join excursions to Livø, a beautiful island in The Limfjord, the North Sea at Svinkløv or Fårup Sommerland, an amusement park in northern Denmark. However, this will all depend on the weather.

Strong values

Ranum Family School is based on values such as diversity and freedom for the individual in respect for the community. Therefore, it is important for us that each participant contributes with ideas for the content that is part of the program. 

Kids as well as adults can contribute with wonderful experience during the summer vacation both alone and together with family and friends. It is a great experience for the participants to help create evening activities, plan excursions, play music or be one of the daily speakers at the assembly. You can also arrange a board game or soccer tournament; decorate the assembly hall for the end-of-summer celebration and so forth. 

It will provide you with a lot of energy and acknowledgement to be active and participate in different parts of the family School.
