Old Times 2020 July 13-18 - canceled.

Old Times is our very popular craft camp where you choose a craft to try out during a nice holiday week, but vUnfortunately, you have come to the conclusion that it is not possible to carry out Old Times safely in these Corona times and must therefore set the course week in its original form. The decisive reason is that it would be very difficult to keep physical distance in the different course elements.

We have therefore decided to cancel Old Times but at the same time open the opportunity to still come as a guest to the yard for some nice summer days, with the possibility of "individual" activities that can be safely carried out. You will be able to be on the farm with full board or a shared pension if you prefer. Serving will either take place on a buffet or as a plate serving, with a good distance between the tables.
Hopefully, we will be able to invite to morning prayer and as I said some safe activities. Maybe you have unfinished crafts from a previous year that you can bring and finish yourself? Or why not take the opportunity to take a full day in the canoe at Värmeln?
You can choose to participate throughout the week, from Monday to Saturday, or only part of the week and the price is based on the same prices that apply to Old Times but of course without a course fee.
We put the safety first and believe that, although there will be no real Old Times, you could have a relaxing week here on the farm anyway. So warm welcome! Contact Sandvikengården by email or phone if you are interested!

For Old Times will be to learn something new, enjoy the summer, the food and the good community, without the requirement but with the possibility of an active holiday.
For Old Times will be alone or together with the rest of the family. For children organized their own activities.
Many of our participants come again year after year and during the more than 30 years of the course we have had over 2000 participants.
Do you want to be with so it is best that you register in advance, the course is often fully booked!

Welcome to Old Times!


Old Time program

Due to the corona pandemic, adjustments in the program may be necessary. It can, for example, apply to meals and the joint collections, morning and evening.

Friday evening we have our big barbecue with exhibition of our craft, the evening ends with a family Mass in the chapel. The course ends on Saturday 18 July at 10.00.

Our course modules

At Old Times you take part in a course during the whole week. We have eight different crafts to choose from this year. For the course to be completed, five adult participants are required and several courses have a maximum number of participants, so it is necessary that you specify at least two different wishes for the course. You can also attend the week without choosing any craft.
