Fay School’s health staff are on campus each day to provide routine and emergency care. All lead staff and camp administrators are CPR and First Aid certified. Please contact the camp office if your child will be taking medication at camp.
Campers will eat lunch in air-conditioned dining halls with their cohorts. Fay will provide lunch for campers for an additional fee of $5 a day. Lunch must be registered for in advance on your online account. Alternatively, campers can bring their own lunch from home. *Please note that FaySummer is a nut-free program.
We will be providing swim lessons this summer, and all campers will also have the option of participating in free swim as part of their regular schedule. Campers will be supervised by their counselors in addition to the FaySummer certified lifeguards on duty at the pool. Our youngest campers will have their 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.
Camp spots are filled on a first come, first served basis. Many programs fill up by April or May, but if space remains in a camp registration will stay open until 10 days before the start of the session.
A non-refundable deposit is due upon registration. Any families deciding to cancel their registration prior to June 1, 2023 will receive a full refund minus the non-refundable deposit. There are no refunds for families that decide to cancel after the June 1, 2023 deadline. If FaySummer cancel a program for any reason, a full refund will be provided.
FaySummer follows the Massachusetts School Immunization Requirements. A list of required immunizations may be viewed here. Please be aware that all medical reports must be submitted to FaySummer's registration portal before June 1, 2023.

Siblings If you are dropping off or picking up multiple children, this will be done at the location of the youngest camper.
Your child should bring a swimsuit and a towel, a lunch, a water bottle, and extra sunscreen. We recommend that younger students bring an extra change of clothes. Counselors will set aside time each day for students to reapply sunscreen. Fay will provide snacks each day, and water coolers are available around campus. *Please note that Fay is a nut-free campus.
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 $170 per session, and extended afternoon care is available from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. for an additional cost of $200 per session.
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.
If your child tests positive for COVID-19 during FaySummer, please call 508-490-8371 or email email@example.com.
Positive cases must isolate for a minimum of 5 days from the date of onset of symptoms or positive test date (both of which are considered Day 0). They may return after a minimum of 5 days and when they are symptom and fever free for at least 24 hours. They are required to wear a mask for days 6-10 after their positive test date. Current guidelines do not require these campers to provide a negative PCR COVID-19 test before returning to camp but they must meet with and be cleared by the school nurse on the morning of their first day back to camp. If the nurse does not clear the student, they will be sent home.
Campers who are close contacts may continue to attend camp as long as they remain asymptomatic. If a camper is symptomatic after a known COVID-19 exposure, they should stay home for five days if they test positive. When they return on day 6, they are required to wear a mask.
If an individual is identified as a close contact because of a positive case at home, that individual will be allowed to attend FaySummer only if the positive case can completely isolate at home.
Any camper who is absent due to illness of any kind for three or more days is required to provide the FaySummer nurse with a doctor's note in order to return. Upon reviewing the specifics of the absence, the nurse may also require a negative PCR COVID-19 test.
