The Summer@SEM Equation: Subtract boys. Add girls ages 12-15. Add Buffalo Seminary alum counselors to be the positive female role models girls need. The result? An environment that creates empowered girls who try harder, sing louder, and have more fun! SEM girls and SEM campers are curious, engaged, relaxed, unselfconscious. Sleepaway@SEM: July 12-August 1, 2020: Girls to stay in our historic home student residences with counselors. They learn safe independence and make friends for life with girls from around the block and around the world. Evening and weekend activities take girls to attractions and cultural events. Buffalo is a New York Times “50 Best Place to Visit!”
