FaySummer 2021

For more than 20 years, FaySummer has offered dynamic, engaging programs for campers in pre-school (age 3) through grade 9, and we are excited to continue our in-person and on-campus programs during the summer of 2021.

Due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols, this summer may look a little different, but while we are prioritizing the health and safety of our community members, we are also taking into consideration the unique composition of our camper population and preserving the character of FaySummer’s program and camp experience. 

To help keep our campers healthy and safe this summer, we have developed health and safety protocols for COVID-19 in response to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and the Massachusetts Camping Association. They follow the plan Fay School developed in August 2020 to reopen campus for full in-person teaching and learning and reflect our knowledge and expertise after what is now many months of working successfully with students through the pandemic. 

While all our health and safety protocols will be a change for summer 2021, our expert teachers and caring counselors will still provide an engaging, safe, and nurturing environment that allows campers to try new activities, find new talents, and make new friends! All of our day programs, Day Camp and Specialty Camps, will still take place on Fay’s 30-acre main campus and campers will have access to state-of-the-art academic facilities, two outdoor heated swimming pools, top-notch indoor and outdoor athletic facilities, an expansive outdoor adventure challenge course, and air-conditioned classrooms and indoor spaces. 

We encourage you to learn more about our programs, and we're always happy to answer any questions you many have. Please contact us at summer@fayschool.org or 508-490-8247.

  • COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols

    FaySummer’s health and safety protocols have been developed in response to guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and the Massachusetts Camping Association. They follow the plan we developed in August 2020 to reopen our campus for full in-person teaching and learning and reflect our knowledge and expertise after what is now many months of working successfully with students through the pandemic.

  • Our Professional Staff

    The high quality of our summer program is built on the high quality of our counselors, teachers, specialists, and unit leaders. Our team is composed of Fay’s faculty and staff, teachers from the local community, professionals in their fields, and college students with experience working with children. Our staff’s experience, professional skills, and passion for working with young people creates a summer full of meaningful and enriching experiences.
  • Facilities

    FaySummer takes place on Fay School’s campus in Southborough, Massachusetts. Campers 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. During the summer of 2021 we also have extra protocols in place due to COVID-19. You can click here to read more about our COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
  • 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. Due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols, families and other visitors are not allowed in campus buildings this summer.
  • Extended Day for Day Campers

    FaySummer will continue to offer extended morning care and afternoon care. Morning care is available from 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. for an additional cost of $85 per week, and extended afternoon care is available from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. for an additional cost of $100 per week. Campers will be supervised by counselors in smaller groups and in spaces that allow for appropriate physical distancing.

    Pre-registration is recommended, but we understand the complexity of family scheduling and accommodate drop-in registrations on a space available basis. Morning drop-in care is $20 per drop in and afternoon drop-in care is $25 per drop in. If plans have changed, and you need your child to arrive early or leave late, please contact the Camp Office at 508-490-8371 or summer@fayschool.org.

    Any camper not picked up by 4:10 p.m. will be taken to the Extended Day program, and the family will be billed at the drop-in rate. Drop-in fees are not prorated and the full amount is due for any time spent in the Extended Day program.
