Sunshine, Water, Fun and Many New Challenges:
Salem Summer School (Ages 12-14)

Salem brings out the joys of life -- but also offers many new perspectives and exciting inspiration.
"How does learning work and what is it like to live in a boarding school? What am I really interested in, what is important to me, and what am I especially good at?"
The Summer School Salem is located at Salem Castle, a Cistercian monastery to the north of Lake Constance. It is designed for children aged 12 and 14, who want to enjoy a diverse program and gain an impression of what life at our boarding school is like.
In the morning, English, German as a foreign language (DaF), Natural Sciences and Technology, as well as Mathematics. In addition, students have the opportunity to become acquainted with Salem's active rescue services and to pursue creative arts and crafts.
Afternoons are dedicated to sports. Along with classical ball games we also offer archery, break dance, and a variety of outdoor activities.
During the middle weekend students will explore the Lake Constance Region and may expect an exciting outdoor experience.
At the conclusion of the summer school, students present a revue of their creations and experiences to parents and guests.
