Summer Camps

In the Spirit of Community

Summer camps are one of the many ways Salem students engage with the local community.

All-Girls Camps: STEAM and Robotics & Coding

Salem students work as counselors, serving alongside their Academy teachers. The campers, K-8 girls from the local community, explore the fundamentals of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math in creative, age-appropriate activities.

A Coed Summer Sports Camp for Kids

Four 1-week sessions in June & July 2020; Dates pending

Half-Day Junior Sports Camp

Ages 4-6/8:30 am-1:00 pm

Our carefully planned activities keep the learning fun, but not exhausting. High-energy exercises are integrated with less physical ones. Campers take swimming lessons as well as swim recreationally. The program uses small equipment to develop hand-eye coordination, stamina, strength, balance, and ball-handling skills. Cooperation and team spirit are emphasized to all campers as our objective is to have fun rather than to compete.

Half-Day Senior Sports Camp

Ages 7-11/8:30 am-1:00 pm

Campers work with staff to learn the fundamentals of individual (swimming, tennis, golf, archery) and team sports (basketball, soccer, lacrosse, t-ball). Rules, strategies, skills, and competitive awareness are emphasized.
