Overview

All Family Weekend courses are now open for registration! See courses here.

Heading to Grand Marais for the long weekend? Sign up for family fun at North House over our popular Family Weekend. There are over a dozen courses to choose from: some designed for families to take together (adults and kids), while are kids only! There will also be live craft demonstrations all weekend, so stop by even if you only have a bit of time to spare. The fun continues in the evenings with a contra dance and a wood-fired pizza potluck. See you on the harbor!

Pizza Potluck and S'mores

Saturday, 5:30 pm

Students and their families are invited to join us Saturday night for a wood-fired pizza potluck. We provide the sauce, cheese, and a hot oven. You bring a topping to share and we'll make pizzas together to enjoy. Following the pizza potluck, we'll have a campfire and s'mores next to the lake. A great way to relax with new friends from your classes over the weekend, and who doesn't love pizza?!
