Danish Bahá’í Summer School 2024

We look forward to, once again, welcoming many participants to the Bahá’í Community Summer School.

The summer school this year offers the opportunity to hear our  guest speaker, Rainn Wilson from the USA, participate in interesting workshops and perhaps see the world from a new perspective. As always, there will be plenty of time to relax and have fun with family and friends. There is room for meaningful conversations in the “conversation corner, music and song, prayer, soccer and much more!

Time: Monday, July 22nd at 14:00 until Saturday, July 27th at 14,
Place: Kerteminde Efterskole, Degnehøj vej 20, 5300 Kerteminde

This year’s theme:
“Why we need a spiritual revolution – the Bahá’I perspective.”
(The main program will be in English with translation to Danish)

This year’s Guest Speaker is Rainn Wilson from the USA. Rainn is an American actor, and is best known for his role as Dwight Schrute in the American comedy series “The Office” as well as numerous other well-known series and films.

Rainn is a Bahá’í and in addition to being an actor, producer and comedian, he is also the author of several books – his last book from 2023: “Soul boom- Why we need a spiritual revolution”, explores the effect spirituality will have on the world in relation to finding solutions to all its challenges. An exciting and super relevant theme that we will explore together, from a Bahá’í perspective.

Holiday Reinhorn, Rainn Wilson’s wife, will also participate in the summer school. She will be responsible for several afternoon workshops in “Creative Writing”. Holiday is  the author of several books and writes articles for bahaiteachings.org on subjects such as spirituality, education of women and about the encounter with the Bahá’í Faith.

Children and junior youth
We are preparing programs for children, junior youth. More information will come, but there will certainly be an opportunity to engage the children in teaching and activities such as music and singing, bread baked on a bonfire, sports etc. The age groups will be distributed according to who registers.

Sports and Fun!
At the school, there will also be plenty of opportunities to meet new people, do sports and gain experience. Use of the gym, green areas and fitness room is included in the price. The beach is 3 km away (5 minutes by car).
