If you’re 18 years or older and want to sharpen your Finnish, or just stretch your mind, our adult programs at Salolampi are perfect for you. We will help you improve your pronunciation, expand your vocabulary, learn new conversational skills and broaden your knowledge of Finnish culture. 

Salolampi‘s environment looks like Finland, complete with authentic Finnish log cabins and tanssilava (dance pavilion) surrounded by birch trees. Enjoy the electric indoor or wood-fired lakefront saunaskantele music and singing, or a game of mölkky while our kitchen staff prepares delicious Finnish cuisine. 

Our talented and motivated staff members provide expert instruction in small and large group settings catered specifically to your language abilities. They make sure sessions include ample opportunity for practicing your Finnish as well as for meeting new people and having fun. While the adult sessions are carefully adapted to suit the ages of the participants, Salolampi adult weeks offer participants the same authentic menus as the summer sessions for young people. 

This program is generously supported by the Salolampi Foundation, providing numerous scholarship options.
