Meet Our Team

You can count on a great summer when the experts are in charge.

We’re the experts in elementary and middle school education! Our dedicated unit leaders are all trained educators, and each of them has over ten years of experience working at FaySummer with elementary-aged children. Many of our team members are Fay faculty, and our counselor staff also includes teachers from the local community, professionals in their fields, and college students with experience working with children. Our understanding of the unique needs of this age group make it possible for us to create a summer full of meaningful and enriching experiences.
