Summer 2020 Update

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, FaySummer will not hold an in-person program this summer. Although we are disappointed, we are confident that it is the right decision. In the absence of standardized safety guidelines and screening protocols at this stage of the pandemic, the risks associated with opening camp far outweigh the benefits, and it would not be possible to safeguard the health of our community members. 

We are currently developing plans to offer some online programs this summer, and we will share this information here as soon as the details are finalized. We will miss seeing our campers this summer, and we look forward to a time when our FaySummer community can gather together once again. You can click here to read the full letter sent to families on May 18 that announced this change.

  • Our Professional Staff

    The high quality of our summer program is built on the high quality of our counselors, teachers, specialists, unit leaders, and dorm parents.

    FaySummer takes place on Fay School’s 66-acre campus in Southborough, Massachusetts. Students have access to all of the school’s state-of-the-art facilities, including two pools, athletic fields, tennis courts, gyms, indoor rock climbing wall, outdoor adventure course, theater, visual arts center, and Innovation Lab for our “makers.”
  • Safety

    At FaySummer, safety is of primary importance. Our staff participates in extensive training in preparation for their work with campers. Low camper-to-staff ratios make quality supervision possible at all times. Swimming instructors are lifeguard certified, and camp staff are trained in first aid and CPR. FaySummer also has a nurse on staff each day.
  • Meals at Fay

    Campers eat meals together in Fay’s dining rooms, and fostering good nutrition is a key component of our program. All meals are prepared on campus by Sage Dining Services, a nationally recognized company that provides dining services to independent schools and colleges around the country. Sage’s meals are made from scratch with high quality ingredients, with an emphasis on local sourcing and environmental sustainability. Sage also offers multiple choices for our culturally diverse community at every meal. Ingredients and nutrition information is available at
    Day campers have the option of purchasing a lunch each day for $5, or they can choose to bring a lunch from home. Lunches are posted each week and include an entrée, drink, access to the salad bar, and dessert. For overnight campers, the cost of meals is included in the camp fee.
    Please note: FaySummer is peanut free, and campers should not bring in any food that may contain peanut products.
  • Family Connections

    We want families to be part of our summer community too! Unit leaders are available every day to ensure effective home-camp communication, and they send home regular updates so parents and campers can discuss the day’s activities.
  • Extended Day for Day Campers
