About Day Camp

Fay Day Camp features busy days full of fun camp activities and many opportunities to explore, discover, create, and connect. Campers are grouped by age, and daily schedules include swimming lessons along with an ever-changing mix of activities. While younger campers have a more structured schedule, older campers have increased privileges and more choice in their daily activities. For some activities, older campers team up with participants in our Overnight Programs, providing them the opportunity to develop friendships with young people from around the country - and around the world.

Campers interested in pursuing an interest in more depth may also sign up for Specialty Camps, which offer a half-day focus on one topic coupled with a half-day of Day Camp programming.
