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.

At Fair Acres, 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!

The Best Summer Ever:

We have been working hard all winter preparing for the “biggest and best” Summer Camp program ever at Fair Acres for the upcoming summer! Our goal is to create a positive experience that will last a lifetime for our campers and ensure a summer of “good ol’ camp fun!”

The program for the summer months has been designed to utilize the seven plus acres that encompass Fair Acres. The country setting offers large green lawn areas, fully equipped playgrounds, a tennis court, a basketball court, a putting green, a ball field and plenty of wooded area for nature. The area also includes spring fed Shubael’s Pond with its’ sandy bottom and gradual depth offering swimming instruction by Red Cross Certified Instructors. Emphasis will be on physical development through motor skills, arts and crafts, swimming instruction, nature, music and good camp fun. Fair Acres classroom buildings are spacious facilities that are utilized on rainy days and special activities.

Fair Acres Summer Camp is staffed with hand selected, qualified persons from all over New England. Our staff is rigorously trained and thoroughly understands the needs of each camper as an individual. Most of all, they are enthusiastic, energetic and anxious to work with your child to develop to their full potential.

Come join us this summer at Fair Acres for all the fun a child can handle! We are looking forward to a great summer with you and your family.

April Vacation Camp Highlights

This year’s April Vacation Camp was an action-packed week, full of fun and friendships, featuring plenty of outdoor games, imaginative play, crafts and nature-based activities!

Our vacation campers made use of the entire campus, and enjoyed this year’s themes, which included Sports Day, Super Hero Day and a Color Wars Day…

News from Amigo!

We are so happy to report that Amigo, our beloved school horse, is settling in just fine at his new home in Athens, Georgia, with his owner, trainer and caregiver, Molly Larson. Molly, a 99′ Fair Acres graduate, tells us Amigo is loving the warm weather, enjoying the Southern hospitality and making new friends everyday!

Molly made the decision to bring Amigo to Georgia last September to be with her, as she was completing her three-year residency specializing in Internal Equine Medicine. Molly recently graduated from the UPenn Veterinarian program, and after completing an internship in Kentucky, she moved to Athens, where she now resides with her fiancé, Dan Adams (veterinarian surgeon), their dogs, Luke, and three-legged Golden Retriever, Lefty (pictured below).

All are doing well and we look forward to their safe return to Fair Acres someday soon!

Welcoming Spring with Eric Carle!

There’s no better way to welcome Spring than by immersing ourselves in a unit about the beloved children’s book author, Eric Carle! Besides being beautiful and entertaining, his books always offer children the opportunity to learn something about the world around them.

Some of the titles our students have been enjoying, include:

  • The Tiny Seed
  • The Little Cloud
  • The Hungry Caterpillar
  • A House for Hermit Crab

In addition to reading his stories, our students have also been participating in numerous activities inspired by Carle’s loveable characters and vibrant illustrations, even growing their own peas from seeds!

Our teachers have been proudly displaying their students’ colorful renditions of Carle’s illustrations, which they used an array of mediums to create.

We hope you enjoy the sampling below!
