What People Are Saying About Fair Acres!

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!

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.

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!
