Learn More About Fay Day Camp!
FaySummer offers dynamic, hands-on programs for children entering Pre-Kindergarten through ninth grade. Our expert teachers and counselors provide an engaging, nurturing, and safe atmosphere that encourages exploration, creativity, and lasting connections among children and adults.
Fay Day Camp,
for campers ages 3 to 15, features a busy day full of fun camp activities for campers grouped by age. Campers who want to pursue a hobby or interest in more depth can choose our weeklong Specialty Camps
, which offer a half-day focus on one topic coupled with a half-day of traditional camp activities. Swim lessons take place each day for campers in both programs.

|Our Professional Staff|
The high quality of our summer program is built on the high quality of our counselors, teachers, specialists, unit leaders, and dorm parents. Our team is composed of Fay’s faculty and staff, teachers from the local community, professionals in their fields, and college students with experience working with children. Our staff’s experience, professional skills, and passion for working with young people create a summer full of meaningful and enriching experiences.
FaySummer takes place on Fay School’s 66-acre campus in Southborough, Massachusetts. Students have access to all of the school’s state-of-the-art facilities, including the pool, athletic fields, tennis courts, gyms, indoor rock climbing wall, outdoor adventure course, theater, dance studio, and arts center with a painting studio, printmaking room, and pottery wheels.
At FaySummer, safety is of primary importance. Our staff participates in extensive training in preparation for their work with campers. Low camper-to-staff ratios make quality supervision possible at all times. Swimming instructors are lifeguard certified, and camp staff are trained in first aid and CPR. FaySummer also has a nurse on staff each day.
|Meals at Fay|
Fostering good nutrition is a key component of our program. Campers eat meals together in Fay’s dining room; our kitchen staff prepares meals from scratch with high quality ingredients, and there is a major emphasis on local sourcing and environmental sustainability. Day campers have the option of purchasing a Fay lunch each day for $5, or they can choose to bring in a lunch from home. Fay lunches will be posted each week and will include an entrée, drink, access to the salad bar, and dessert.
Please note: Fay’s Dining Room is a peanut-aware facility. If your child has severe allergies, it is recommended that he or she bring lunch from home.
We want families to be part of our summer community too! Unit leaders are available every day to ensure effective home-camp communication, and they send home regular updates so parents and campers can discuss the day’s activities. For day camp families, we host two summer barbeques so families can meet the staff and enjoy the camp environment. For Overnight Camp and Academic Adventures, families are invited to our closing activities on the last day of each session.
