Meet Our Summer 2021 FAYcation Team


Our mission

The FAYcation Summer Camp offers participants a variety of enriching opportunities in line with the mission and values of The Fay School in a secure, enriching, and academically challenging environment, where respectful communication and inclusion of campers and staff from all backgrounds remains paramount. Here, children learn and grow intellectually, physically, socially, ethically, and artistically while developing self-confidence and a lifelong love of learning through an active partnership among educators, parents, and students.

General Information

FAYcation is available for all Houston-area children entering Primary I (age 3) through Fifth Grade. Registration for FAYcation Summer Camp will open on Thursday, February 11, 2021, at 10:00am and close three weeks prior to each week of camp. Please take a look at our FAYcation Flyer for more details! Listed below are the weekly themes and dates for 2021 FAYcation Summer Camp. At this time, we will continue to take registrations for the FAYcation Summer Program. Should we make the determination to cancel our Summer Camp due to COVID-19, all registrations will be refunded, and we will suspend the cancelation fee.

FAYcation Summer Camp sessions can be dropped for a full refund less a $50 per session fee through May 14th, 2021. After this date, all registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferable.


All students will remain with the same teacher/counselor team throughout their time at FAYcation Summer Camp, and groups will not mix. Properly fitted face masks are required by all campers and staff attending FAYcation Summer Camp. Outdoor spaces will be heavily utilized for camp activities, including outdoor lunch and snack.
