FaySummer Overnight participants stay in single, double, or triple air-conditioned rooms in an intimate, home-style setting with a common room and shared bathrooms. Teachers and counselors live in the dorms with the students, providing 24-hour supervision and care. All students enrolled in our overnight programs have access to Fay’s state-of-the-art facilities, including our 3,700 square-foot Innovation Lab, a dining room for family-style meals, swimming pools, athletic fields, tennis courts, gym, indoor rock climbing wall, an outdoor adventure course, theater, dance studio, and art center.
As the oldest junior boarding school in the United States and home to middle school students during the school year, we are experts in making the boarding experience a positive one for adolescents. Our team is composed of Fay School’s faculty and staff, teachers from the local community, professionals in their fields, and college students who have experience working with children. All are trained in their areas of expertise and well versed in helping young people make the transition to living away from home.
With Fay located just 25 miles west of Boston, it’s easy to take advantage of everything the area has to offer, from the mountains of New Hampshire to the Atlantic shoreline. Campers spend their weekends off campus for fun and educational day trips that showcase the best of New England.
