Session 1 was full of FUN, SUN and FRIENDSHIP!
The camp spirit was at an all-time high during Session 1, with our campers deepening existing friendships and forging plenty of new ones!
Our campers were able to beat the heat with the famous Fair Acres Slip n’ Slide, inflatable water slides and water games! Mismatch Day and the Red-Blue Color Wars were definitely two of the session highlights, with a variety of exciting activities and games taking place over the course of the two weeks…

Our summer camp programming is second to none!
Fair Acres Country Day Camp runs for eight weeks, through the months of July and August. Camp opens at 7:30 am, Monday through Friday, with the camp program beginning at 9:00 am. The camp program ends at 3:30 pm and extended care is available until 5:00 pm. Campers range in age from 4-11 years and are grouped according to their age. Camp runs in two week sessions with most campers choosing multiple sessions throughout the summer. We also offer a one-week Pre-Camp session at the end of June.
Fair Acres Summer Camp is all about fun! Throughout the day, campers participate in a wide range of activities which include:
- Field Games
- Arts & Crafts
- Swim Lessons and Free Swim
- Playground Play
- Court Sports (tennis, basketball, hockey, etc.)
- “Specialty Days”
- Water Activities
- Nature Exploration
- …and more!
Good ol’ camp fun is the main theme throughout the summer with all of our activities and programming. Campers will rotate from one planned activity to the next with their counselors. All activities are planned for the week by the lead counselors and reviewed by the camp director to ensure quality programming. Campers pack a lunch and drink daily as well as a bathing suit and towel. Fair Acres provides plenty of water breaks during the camp day and requires that all campers have sneakers to ensure their safety during daily activities.
Fair Acres encourages parents to visit camp and experience the same enjoyment and excitement that campers get. Your child will make lasting friendships, learn all about what it is to be a camper and most of all… they will look forward to coming back the next day!

What people are saying about Kindergarten at Fair Acres:
“We feel that our son’s academic and social growth at Fair Acres since Preschool and now ending his tenure here in Kindergarten has improved exponentially! He went from being a socially shy and academically apprehensive child to a confident, happy and academically flourishing child.”
“My daughter has improved immensely so far. She is reading on her own, speaking Spanish, counting, knows the months in order and more. As well as academically, she has also grown emotionally which is just as important. I don’t have to fight for her to go to school. She wants to go on the weekends. This shows me she is really enjoying it as well.”
We have limited openings remaining in our 2019-2020 class!
We love Fair Acres! I can’t say it enough. The three year old program was the first time our son attended a school away from us. Not only was he learning amazing things, he was also greatly cared for by the teachers and staff. He had some anxiety issues and the teaching staff worked with us, in a variety of ways, to overcome his fears. This year he attends the Kindergarten program and has blossomed! He comes home teaching us all kinds of new things- about other cultures, science, nature, art, etc. He has really taken ownership of his learning. It is especially great to have him in an educational environment where the teachers value outdoor play and learning. He goes outside every day, even if there is snow on the ground. The teachers go out of their way to teach about the environment we live in, so that the children get an appreciation for nature. One of the first days of pickup this year in Kindergarten, the students were outside having a dance party on the field. The children were having such a great time! And really, that is what every day is like! There is learning in every activity they do, but the kids don’t know it- they think they are playing.
What we love the most though, is he is learning to be a good friend, citizen and person, as well. The development of social skills is a huge piece that we, as parents, cannot teach alone. Fair Acres has been incredible with teaching good values, interpersonal skills and kindness. Our child refers to all his classmates as his friends, not as “kids in his class”. All of this wouldn’t be possible without the guidance and support of the owners, Curt and Jodi Larson. They are always welcoming and open. Our son loves to say good morning to Miss Jodi and gives her a hug every time. These are the relationships we want him to develop with his classmates and teachers/administrators. He LOVES going to school. We really can’t say enough wonderful things!
