About Björklunden

“Björklunden vid Sjön (Swedish for Birch Grove at the Lake) is a 441-acre estate on the Lake Michigan shore just south of Baileys Harbor in Door County, Wisconsin. A place of great beauty and serenity, the estate was bequeathed to Lawrence University in 1963 by Donald and Winifred Boynton of Highland Park, Illinois. Since 1980, Lawrence has offered a series of adult-education seminars at Björklunden, interrupted only by a 1993 fire that destroyed the estate’s main lodge. In 1996, construction was completed on a new and larger facility, and the Björklunden seminars resumed.

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!

Registration is now open for 2019 summer seminars! Unless otherwise noted, 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.”
