Safe, family-friendly activities have resumed on the North House campus
It’s summertime on the Grand Marais Harbor and the campus has much to offer, whether you’re well-versed in craft or just curious about what’s happening at North House. A free Saturday Campus Tour is a good way to get oriented to the history and activity of the school. A two-hour Intro to Wood Fired Baking Course is a great way to spend some time making and breaking bread with friends. Every Thursday through Sunday, see craft in action with live demonstrations with our Instructors in Residence. And of course, you can book a sail on our schooner, Hjørdis.
View our summer activity guide for more information on upcoming events, programs, and courses.
Daily Sailing on Lake Superior
Hjørdis will be sailing until October 3! Bookings are available now.
- Sails are around one hour in duration.
- Each sail is limited to a single group or household.
- There is a booking minimum of four tickets per sail (you can still sail with fewer than four, but must pay for four). Maximum of six.
September bookings will open on August 1. As we sort through our captains’ schedules we will add additional sails to the calendar, so please check back soon.
