Spotlight Camps (Grades 3-9)


 

FaySummer Spotlight Camps

New for 2023, Spotlight Camps are for students entering grades 3-9 who are interested in a full-day athletic or academic camp. As fully immersive programs, the camps are designed to build upon existing skills and interests, all in a fun and supportive setting.

FaySummer Spotlight Camps are led by experienced teachers and coaches with a demonstrated expertise in their program area. All camps take place on Fay's 66-acre campus, which includes state-of-the-art academic facilities, air-conditioned classrooms, ten full-size fields, an indoor turf field, a baseball diamond and a softball diamond with three batting cages, four basketball courts, a fitness center, tennis courts, and more.

All FaySummer Spotlight Camps must have a minimum enrollment to run. If a program has low enrollment, campers will be able to transfer to another Spotlight Camp or another FaySummer program.
