Language Learning at Salolampi

At Salolampi, you’ll learn Finnish in a traditional summer camp setting. Language classes are tailored to learners of all ages and stages. Whether you’re looking for an early introduction or an intensive language program, we’ll meet your level of language and help you to advance during a one, two or four-week session.

No matter which Salolampi program you select, you’ll be immersed in Finnish language and culture from the moment you arrive. Our goal is to provide an environment in which you find the courage and confidence to explore Finnish language and culture.

We will use gestures, repetition, songs and games to make sure you know what to do, where to go and what’s going on from the moment you arrive. And, with constant help and support from our dedicated staff, you’ll be amazed by how quickly you learn—even if you are brand new to the Finnish language.

Each day at Salolampi, a secret counselor is chosen to listen particularly carefully and choose one villager who speaks the most Finnish, asks the most questions, and participates to their fullest potential. In this video, one counselor, Ari, gives a diskopallo to Sanna.
