A vacation with a focus
Lawrence University's Northern Campus | Door County, Wisconsin

If you're in search of a unique adventure that combines relaxation with education, Björklunden has just what you're looking for. The Björklunden seminar program provides an opportunity for you to spend a week at the lodge attending an engaging and thought-provoking class in the mornings while giving you ample time to explore beautiful Door County in the afternoons. We like to call it a "vacation with a focus"—and hope you'll consider joining us this summer or fall to experience it for yourself!

The 2018 seminar schedule will be released on January 22nd.  In the meantime, please feel free to explore our 2017 seminar catalog for a sample of seminar offerings. Unless otherwise noted on this web page, registration for seminars remains open until the day before each seminar begins. The seminars are conducted at the pristine 441-acre Björklunden estate on the shore of Lake Michigan outside Baileys Harbor in Door County.

Participants can attend seminars either as residents, staying at the distinctly Scandinavian Björklunden lodge, or as commuters. All seminars include meals prepared by Björklunden's own resident chef and each seminar begins with Sunday evening dinner. Classes meet weekday mornings and some evenings with remaining free time available to explore Door County's many cultural and recreational opportunities or for simple relaxation at Björklunden's mile-long, Lake Michigan shoreline and wooded walking trails.


Seminar participants choose only one seminar for each week of attendance. Class sizes are limited.  Early registration will help ensure participants get into the seminar they prefer.
