  • 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 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.
  • How will swimming work?

    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.
  • 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, 2022 will receive a full refund minus the non-refundable deposit. There are no refunds for families that decide to cancel after the June 1, 2022 deadline. If FaySummer cancel a program for any reason, a full refund will be provided.

    Siblings
    If you are dropping off our picking up multiple children, this will be done at the location of the youngest camper. 

    This summer, we’re excited to be wrapping up construction on our brand new, state-of-the-art, Center for Creativity and Design, a 7,000-square-foot design and maker space that will be home to our Creativity and Design Program. Construction will be focused mainly on our academic building, but we may see some disruption to our drop-off and pick-up routines. We’ll be sure to notify you in advance of any changes to those plans. 
  • 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.
    *Please note that Fay is a nut-free campus.
  • Is extended care available outside of the typical camp day?

    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 summer@fayschool.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.
  • Will bus transportation be available?

    FaySummer will not be providing bus service for Summer 2022.
