Looking up the compound "boarding school" I get definitions such as "a school where students live and study" (Cambridge dictionary); "a school that provides meals and lodging" (Merriam-Webster) and so on. That is, the focus seems to lie on the place aspect, rather than on the activity aspect. Now I'm wondering whether "boarding school" can also be used in the more abstract activity sense?
More specifically, could "boarding school" be used in a context where a school or a university organise for their students (who usually live in their own homes) to stay in a particular place (which is specifically not a school) for a limited period of time during which they live and study together?
For instance, would the following make sense to say in a description of a university programme:
"The programme includes a two-week boarding school, during which students participate in seminars and workshops..."
If this doesn't work, what should I use instead?
Edit: If the person who down-voted my question and voted to close could let me know what's wrong with my question I'd be truly grateful – and perhaps I could learn from my mistakes.
