At Fairmont Summer Programs, we inspire young minds with adventure and academic preparation while providing a safe environment where kids can make friends, have fun, try new things, and create lifelong memories.
65 Summers, 1 Goal
In 1953, Fairmont’s founder started a school with a mission to inspire and empower students to be their very best. In keeping with our founder’s vision, the Fairmont philosophy continues to encourage children to be inquisitive and to place no limits on what they can achieve. We believe summer is the perfect time to encourage children to take risks, try new things, make new friends…and parents can enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that a caring and enthusiastic Fairmont teacher or counselor is at the wheel. Fairmont’s ACA-accredited camp, our renowned summer school, and a comprehensive line-up of enrichment courses provide dozens of options for customizing a summer experience that suits your child’s needs and your family’s schedule. Whether it’s building confidence in academic subjects at summer school or strengthening social skills at camp, your child will come away from summer at Fairmont feeling smart, self-assured and excited about learning.
Fairmont Summer Programs is a member of the Western Association of Independent Camps (WAIC). WAIC is a group of independent day and resident camps in the Western United States. All WAIC camps are accredited through the American Camp Association, and therefore meet the camp industry’s highest standards for safety, staffing, health, and programming.
Meet Our Amazing summer Team
Jasmine Broderick Werner
Director of Summer & After School ProgramsI am so excited to be joining the Fairmont family, and to be returning to my first love—summer camp! I grew up attending YMCA residential camps every summer, and spent my first 5 working years there. Since earning my BA from UCSD and my MA from Queen Mary, University of London, I have been fortunate to continue my work with youths through nonprofit arts organizations and local private school programs. In my spare time, I like to watch TV, meditate, and nap. When I’m not hanging around the house with my cat Daisy, I’m going on adventures with my husband, James. We love a good road trip! (especially if it involves great food). I can’t wait to start this new adventure at Fairmont summer camp! Summer camp changes lives, and this summer is going to be out of this world.
Anaheim Hills Campus
Summer Camp Director, Anaheim HillsI love summer camp! I have organized Fairmont’s summer programs for 15 years now and it only gets better. I have three children, Melissa, Michael and Miles and one grandchild, Ryland James and I absolutely LOVE my family and children. Sometimes I feel like I have 500 children because I feel personally responsible for them and love them like they are my own! All three of my children attended Fairmont Private School and Summer Programs and summer was always a highlight of their year. I love seeing our campers try new things and be amazed with their success. We offer a safe haven of fun and new experiences for your children to try. Our goal is to have your child exhausted and happy at the end of the camp day… and they fall asleep in your car!
Assistant Summer Camp Director, Anaheim HillsI came to Fairmont Summer Camp fresh out of high school in 2015 and have not left since! I’ve enjoyed my time as a counselor, but I am so stoked and privileged to take on the new role of Assistant Camp Director. Between school and camp I am tuckered out, but it is worth the energy. It is extremely fulfilling to make a bond with these campers, and for us to make mutual impacts on each other’s lives. I love to see these kids come to camp and be excited to make friendships, get creative, and be active. I wish I could say that I was here solely for the kids, but if we’re being honest, they give me just as many memories, laughs, and friendships. That’s why I keep coming back to camp – the awesome campers and the outstanding team continuously put a smile on my face. This is the best job I have ever had, and I hope I can share this experience with many others!
Summer Preschool Director, Anaheim HillsI have worked at Fairmont since 1998-18 years. My favorite part about summer at Fairmont is watching the little preschool children get so excited on water play days. The expressions on their faces when they play in the sprinklers, water tables, and small pools is priceless.
Summer Elementary School Director, Anaheim HillsHello! I have been with Fairmont for 5 years now, and I am so excited to kick off my third summer with Fairmont Summer Programs. Before this, I taught internationally in Japan and Taiwan and within the US. My favorite part of summer is meeting all the new faces of those who have never joined us before and catching up with the kids and families who come every year. The brand new kiddos might come in a little timid and shy, but by the end of the week, they know the campus like the back of their hands and are begging to stay and play for just a little longer. We are all counting down the days until we can welcome you back to the Fairmont Family!
Historic Anaheim Campus
Summer Camp Director, Historic AnaheimI’ve been a Camp Director at Fairmont since 2004. Prior to that I was an art and computer counselor for Fairmont Summer Camp. I also serve as the Director of Student Services and Activities during the school year. I have two wonderful boys that keep me young (and tired)! I am an avid Angels and Kings fan and still am a die-hard New Kids on the Block fan. My favorite thing at camp is seeing the counselors make bonds with the campers. Each counselor is so unique in their style of working with kids. It is so awesome having a diverse staff that allows each camper to pick out a counselor that they really bond with!
Assistant Summer Camp Director, Historic AnaheimI have worked with Fairmont Summer Programs for about 10 years and have been Assistant Camp Director for a few years now. Before I became the Assistant Camp Director I was the Art and Sports Counselor. During the school year I am the Student Services Lead. At Summer Camp, I love seeing the kids have so much fun with all of the different activities they get to participate in. Seeing their smiles makes my job the best job I have ever had!
North Tustin Campus
Summer Camp Director, North TustinAs a former camper and counselor, I’m thrilled to be Fairmont North Tustin’s summer camp director. This is my first year in this role and I’m looking forward to helping our students create lasting memories and develop new friendships. I attended Fairmont from preschool through 12th grade and went on to get my B.A. from Chapman and M.A. from the University of San Francisco. During the school year I teach P.E. and advise ASB at North Tustin. Go Eagles!
Assistant Summer Camp Director, North Tustin
Summer Elementary School Director, North TustinFairmont has been my home for 17 years. I have spent my professional career as a public and private school educator and moved into administration a few years ago. My favorite role at Fairmont is mother. Not only are my children Fairmont students, but also I get to connect with all Fairmont students. I get to see them grow and stretch in all areas of school life. We share high-5s and hugs, and we share in the struggles too. This is one of my favorite parts—-because this is where we grow greater than we thought possible. My other favorite part is the jubilance that permeates the campus;it’s omnipresent and omnipotent, and truly, it is infectious. If you aren’t already a Fairmont family, I can assure you that from the first day on campus,you will find where you belong.
We can’t imagine what we would do without the Fairmont summer program since we both work full time. We especially love the fact that Fairmont summer school not only provides an enjoyable day filling my kids idle time with both learning and entertainment activities, but also improves their reading and math skills ensuring their success in the coming academic year. The new Math and Reading enrichment program they participated in last year was a definite bonus. We feel very safe leaving our children at the camp and the field trips with the camp counselors. We look forward to another great summer this year. Hyun
