Our Philosophy

Salem Academy is committed to providing a secure, structured, and enthusiastic environment for children of all ages. The Academy’s professional staff and counselors will run the daily operation of the camp using their personal skills and talents to make sure the campers have an enjoyable and productive learning experience.

A fixed camper/counselor ratio of no more than seven campers to one counselor provides greater individual attention in a group setting. Each day of camp will be dedicated to introducing campers to the world of science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.

Activities will be geared to ensure that campers have an age-appropriate, creative, and comprehensive experience. The purpose of the Salem Academy Summer Camps for Girls is to meet the individual needs of campers while building their interest and passion in STEAM-related, Robotics, and Coding fields.
