Salamanca Summer Camp is located on campus of the Colegio Calasanz situated within the old city walls, in the heart of the historic center with the whole town accessible by foot.

Spanish Language Courses Facilities: The Colegio Calasanz is a typical building constructed around a tranquil courtyard in the shape of a U. The school's 5 floors contain classrooms, a large conference room, a video room, a computer room, student residences, a dining hall and more.

The courtyard - a classic cloister - is visible from any of our center's large, interior glass windows. The patio's magnificent adornment and structure is complimented by an adjacent 16th century church, Las Bernardas. Considered some of the best examples of the Spanish Plateresque style, these architectural gems are only accessible to those who attend our center!

Outdoor facilities Behind the church, there is an extensive sports facility which includes a football (soccer) field, a basketball court, a handball court, a frontón (Basque handball court), a volleyball court, an in-line skating rink and more. Students also have access to a separate, nearby swimming pool.

In addition to the Residential Stay in the Camp, we also offer a Day Camp and a Home Stay programs.
  • Is your family going to be in Spain for the summer? If so, the Day Camp may be a right choice for you and your children. This option is designed so campers can attend all camp activities during the day and return to their families at night. Day Camp students take part in all the same classes, sports, workshops, excursions, etc. with residential students from about 9.15 AM to 8.00 PM, but they will stay with their families at night and on the weekends. Lunch and snack are included. Transportation to and from the Camp is optional.

  • Students 14 years old and up can choose to become a part of a Spanish host family. From 9:15 AM to 8:00 PM they also participate in all camp activities and return to their host families every night. This program does not include weekends at the Camp. Instead, the students spend this time with their host families.

The city is large enough (180.000 inhabitants) to be able to offer the advantages of a real city, but at the same time it keeps the intimacy of a village. Salamanca has played an important role in the history of the Spanish (Castilian) language. For this reason Salamanca is enormously popular with people all over the world who want to learn Spanish. It is very easy to meet people because the city is fairly small and attainable and you can go practically everywhere on foot. You don't have to make rendezvous as you are bound to see everyone in the Plaza Mayor, one of the finest squares in Spain and known as the living room of the Salamantinos. As there is such a varied range of nationalities, it is tempting to keep to fellow students. Salamanca is however, a real university city, Spanish students are everywhere and there are plenty of places full of Spaniards. The area around Salamanca also offers many facilities for cultural and sporting day-trips to villages, the mountains or to the many lakes.
