All campers will be required to provide results from a negative PCR test taken no earlier than the Thursday before their first day of camp and each two-week increment thereafter. All FaySummer staff will be tested every two weeks.
Due to the limitations posed by COVID-19, we will not be providing swim lessons this summer. All campers will have the option of participating in free swim with their cohort as part of their regular schedule. Swim sessions will be scheduled so that campers can continue to observe appropriate physical distancing in the pool. As in previous years, campers will be supervised by their cohort counselors in addition to the FaySummer certified lifeguards on duty at the pool. Our youngest campers will have their free swim time in our zero-entry, 3-foot deep, heated wading/teaching pool, while older campers will have access to our adult-size, heated 25-meter pool.
Campers will be grouped in small cohorts with counselors who will stay with them throughout the two-week session. Campers will participate in all camp activities with their cohort in order to limit the number of interactions with other 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 attend an Extended Day Program, please contact the Camp Office at 508-490-8371 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Any camper not picked up by 4:10 p.m. will be taken to Extended Day, 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.
To limit the spread of infection and minimize the number of contacts for each camper, campers will be grouped in small cohorts for their two-week sessions. All campers and staff will follow our COVID-19 health and safety protocols, which we developed last August and which we implemented throughout the fall as our school opened for full-time, in-person learning for every student on our campus. Our protocols include required COVID-19 PCR testing for all FaySummer campers every two weeks: these tests must be completed no earlier than the Thursday before the start of each two-week session.
