The Young Scandinavians Club, or YSC for short, is a social club for Scandinavian and Scandinavian-American individuals and families of all ages in the San Francisco Bay Area. Events take place throughout Northern California. Members have access to club-owned cabins in Clear Lake and Lake Tahoe, while social and cultural events take place year round in and near San Francisco.


Those with Danish, Finnish, Icelandic, Norwegian, or Swedish heritage may qualify for membership, with rates starting at just $35 per year.

"The YSC is an amazing organization for both the young and the young-at-heart. "
