  • What health services are provided on campus?

    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. 
  • Where will campers eat lunch?

    Campers will eat lunch in air-conditioned dining halls with their groups. 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.

  • How will swimming work?

    All campers in the Classic Day Camp and Specialty Camp will visit the pools every day. Campers will take part in both swim lessons and free swim as part of their regular schedule. Campers will be supervised by their counselors in addition to the FaySummer certified lifeguards and swim instructors 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.
  • When do campers need to register by to reserve their spot?

    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.
  • What are your refund policies?

    A non-refundable deposit is due upon registration. Any families deciding to cancel their registration prior to June 1, 2024 will receive a full refund minus the non-refundable deposit. There are no refunds for families that decide to cancel after the June 1, 2024 deadline. If FaySummer cancel a program for any reason, a full refund will be provided. 
  • What immunizations are required for campers?

    FaySummer follows the Massachusetts School Immunization Requirements. A list of required immunizations may be viewed here. Please be aware that all medical reports, including an annual physical, must be submitted to FaySummer's registration portal before June 1, 2024.

  • What should my child bring to camp each day?

    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.

    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.
