Summer School Programs
Summer 2020 Update: ALL summer school will be remote learning
For three and a half hours each day, Fairmont teachers focus on the skills most important to lifelong academic success: reading, writing, and mathematics. Part of each day is devoted to group work and learning stations. Teachers meet with small groups to differentiate and individualize the learning experience. When students are not working with the teacher in their small group, they rotate among a variety of learning stations that reinforce the daily lessons, promote independence, and encourage problem-solving. Students will be assessed on the first few days of the program to determine summer placement.
Students are placed into the grade level they are going into in the Fall.
Please note: K-8th Grade Summer School program will be Monday-Thursday, 9:00am-12:00pm starting July 6 - July 30.

For more information please visit: https://www.cdc.gov/
How do you screen your staff? Do you do background checks?
We take the safety of our campers very seriously, therefore we make sure that all of our counselors interacting with your child have all the skills needed to provide a fun and safe environment for all campers.
Our counselors go through a lengthy and thorough interview and background check process conducted by our Human Resources and Summer Department as well as extensive training to prepare them for a fantastic summer. All counselors are LiveScan fingerprinted and are background checked through the DOJ and FBI.
If you are a school year Fairmont parent, you will notice many of our Student Services members that transition to counselors in the summer. All school year staff, as well as returning counselors from previous summers are required to go through the application and training process each summer to keep their summer counseling skills fresh and new.
What if my child has a severe allergy?
Please be sure to indicate any allergies your child has on the Health History Form as well as stating the severity. If your child requires an EpiPen, please check the EpiPen in at the front office for the duration of the student's time at Fairmont. EpiPens will be stored in the front office while the student is on campus and then transferred to your student’s assigned counselor for any off-site trips. Please label your child’s EpiPen with his or her name in its original packaging.
What if my child needs special medication at camp?
Prior to your first day at Fairmont, we will be asking you to complete a detailed Health & Emergency Form for your child. If your child requires any medication to be taken while they are at camp, we will ask you to give a full detailed description. All medication (prescription or otherwise) will need to be checked in at the front office. Students are not permitted to have medication on them. While on-site, all medication will be stored and distributed by the front desk nurse. While we are off-site for swim day or a field trip, all medication will be carried and distributed by your child's assigned counselor. Prescription medication should be in it's original packaging, including the doctor’s recommended dosage or instruction and be accompanied by an authorization for prescription medication form and a physician’s authorization form.
What if I am nervous to send my child on a field trip? What are your policies?
We completely understand the anxiety that comes with sending your child off with camp to go to a public site for a field trip. We can assure you that safety is our #1 priority in the summer, therefore there are many policies, procedures, and training in place to make sure that all of our on-site and off-site activities are as safe as possible. Fairmont Summer Programs is also an accredited camp through the American Camping Association which requires us to adhere to over 250 standards that include procedures and policies for going off-site in public areas.
We encourage you to contact our Summer Department at 714-234-2757 if you have any questions or concerns about a specific field trip, as we will be able to provide you with the full process for that field trip.
- Our camper to counselor ratio is 10:1 for 1st-6th grade on trips. For Kinder, this is 8:1. We have additional staff onsite (Camp Directors, Summer Team, etc) to help with meeting these ratios as needed.
- On trips, we combine two groups, so the ratios are 20:2 or 16:2. This means that a group will stay in line together or go to the bathroom together, but one counselor will go on the ride/into the bathroom and one counselor will stay with the students who do not wish to participate. When the group is reunited, they move to the next activity together.
- ACA has extensive standards relating to "Campers in Public". Fairmont complies or exceeds with all of these standards which are available to parents as requested. These are national standards that are deemed industry-approved by youth development professionals.
- Different safety considerations apply at the different field trips. For all trips, Kinder students are grouped with highly qualified returning staff members and we use a "lead rope"--meaning Kinder students hold on to a special rope and become a little caterpillar winding their way through the field trip destination. This allows the group to stay together as a whole and not allow for adults to cut through their group and separate/distract/disorient our campers.
- The buddy system really works! Students are grouped and help to account for one another. For Kinder students, this hand-holding is not only adorable, it makes sure that no one is alone.
- Prior to each field trip, the counselors will establish field trip rules and expectations with their campers as well as appropriate on-site assistance in the event of an emergency.
Are parents allowed to chaperone field trips?
Fairmont Summer Programs policy is that only Fairmont personnel are allowed to supervise campers on our off-site field trips. There are two main reasons that parents are not invited to accompany our field trips:
1. Fairmont staff go through a rigorous background check and training process which allows us to feel confident with how they interact with our students. We don't have a system like this for Parent Volunteers so we cannot guarantee appropriate interactions and don't know the background of the parents. To make sure everything is as safe as possible for our students, we make sure that only Fairmont staff are directly interacting with our students.
2. On occasion, parents appear at our field trip locations. It's very confusing for the student to know who is responsible for them-- their parent or their counselor? When we are out in public, we cannot have this kind of confusion and need the student to follow the instructions of the Fairmont Staff who is ultimately responsible for them. Sometimes the parents need attention and we cannot have that kind of distraction either since we need our staff to be focused on their students. To avoid the potential chaos, we simply ask that parents are not a part of the Fairmont experience on field trips.
If a parent or family member does arrive at the same location as our field trip and wishes to join the trip, we will ask that parent or family member to please check out the camper to be released in their care for the remainder of the day. They will not be able to join their camp group, as it may be a safety concern for the other campers of that group.
My child burns easily. What is your sunscreen policy?
We ask that all parents of summer campers apply sunscreen to their child in the morning before the start of camp. If you have authorized us to apply sunscreen in our Health and Emergency Form, we will apply it at lunch time for the rest of the day. This is especially important on swimming and field trip days as we will be outdoors for a majority of the day. If your child is allergic to a specific sunscreen, please indicate on the Health and Emergency Form and notify a counselor on the first day.
Campers are welcome to bring their own sunscreen. Please be sure to label it clearly and notify a counselor that your child will be using their own personal sunscreen.
I am concerned about the swimming portion of camp. What is your swim policy?
Students enrolled in our camp program will have group swimming on Wednesdays. All swimming facilities are staffed with certified lifeguards as well as all counselors have been trained to be active lookouts. Each facility will have swimming areas that are suited for all types of ability levels.
All campers are assessed for their swimming ability by the facility certified lifeguards. The swim test will determine whether they are able to go in the deeper water or off the slide or diving boards (if available at swim facility). If they pass the swim test, they will receive a wristband that allows them to the more advanced areas. If they do not pass the swim test or choose to not take the test, they will stay in the shallow "non-swimmer" area. All areas are are staffed with lifeguards and Fairmont counselor lookouts.
Please note that swim days are not instructed lessons but free play swim. If you are interested in swim lessons, please take a look at our swim lessons at the Historic Anaheim Campus from 4-5 PM, Monday-Thursday. See full details of the swim lesson program here.
If you have any questions about our swim program, please contact our Summer Department at 714-234-2757.
When and where do you go swimming?
Each camper will go swimming once a week from 1:00-2:45pm. Facilities and day of the week for swimming varies by campus.
Historic Anaheim has a pool located on-site. Due to the on-site pool, Historic Anaheim campers will have group swim on Wednesdays and either Tuesday or Thursday (depending on age) with certified lifeguards.
We will update this site with additional information about swimming facilities and dates as it becomes available.
All campers will go to the pool, but swimming is optional.
What do I need to bring for swimming?
A dry towel, sunscreen, and swimsuit are to be brought to camp every swim day. Students will change on campus before heading to their swim facility.
We encourage non-swimmers to bring a Coast Guard Approved LifeJacket or Puddle-Jumper. Please make sure it has your child's name on it.
What if my child does not want to swim?
Swimming is optional, however all campers will be going to the swim facility regardless if they are swimming or not.
We will not have any programs running on the campus during swim days for the non-swimming students to stay on campus. We will have counselors out of the water with provided games and activities in a shaded area for those that choose to not swim that day.
I can only attend part of the 5-week summer school (June 22 - July 23). Will you pro-rate it?
Due to the limited space of Fairmont's summer school program, we are not able to pro-rate summer school for partial attendance. The summer school curriculum is developed to help build the student's confidence in the upcoming school year's academics. We highly encourage the students to attend the full 5-week session in order to maximize their learning.
Families unable to attend the entire 5-week session can enroll for the complete session to guarantee their spot, or can be added to a wait list in which we will notify you within two weeks prior to the start of a program if space allows for a student that is only partially attending.
As we understand that families will be taking vacation during the summer season, we encourage you to contact the student's teacher to see if there is any minor work they can be doing while they are away from the summer school class.
