Young campers learn best in a fun environment that piques their curiosity. Fairmont’s Preschool Camp combines guided play and exploratory learning with guest visitors and on-campus adventures for a dynamic summer learning experience. Fairmont’s program encourages problem-solving and critical-thinking skills, develops vocabulary and oral language, and helps build independence and social skills. Campers refine their fine motor skills through activities like painting and making paper crafts. They build gross motor skills through sports, creative movement, and outdoor play. Each week of camp is unique, keeping camp fresh all summer long. Campers will benefit from daily afternoon enrichment activities consisting of Spanish, Martial Arts, Music, Sports, Dance, and Yoga.
*Junior Kindergarten will run a modified Preschool schedule involving additional academic enrichment.
Please note: Your child must be fully potty trained before attending Summer Camp.

HEALTH & SAFETY
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.
Does my child need to be potty trained?
Yes, your child must be fully potty trained before attending Summer Camp. This means that they must be able to tell an adult that they need to use the restroom, and then use the restroom and wash their hands independently.
What does my child need to bring each day?
We have many fun activities that your child will get to participate on each day.
Here is a list of items that we recommend that you bring each day:
- An extra set of clothing for any accidents. Please include top, bottom, underwear and socks. All extra clothes should be in a Ziploc bag labeled with your child’s name.
- Campers that stay full day will need a crib sheet and a blanket for nap/rest time in a small zipped backpack. Please no piollows, stuffed animals, or sleeting bags.
- Tuesday & Friday are water play days. On those days, please pack a bathing suit, towel, sunscreen,and water shoes in a backpack.
- Additional Snacks – Fairmont will provide a morning and afternoon snack, however you are welcome to pack any additional snacks that you would like them to have during the day.

Please be sure to mark all articles of clothing and personal belongings with your camper’s first and last name.
Extra set of clothing and naptime items can be left the full week unless it requires cleaning. Bedding will be sent home on Friday to be laundered and returned on Monday.
What are your class sizes?
All Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten classes are arranged to maintain a maximum student-to-adult ratio of 8:1. We find that this ratio provides for optimal socialization and relationship building among the children. With multiple adults in a classroom, students receive close adult supervision during play, and focused teacher interaction during academic work time. Junior Kindergarten classes are a maximum of 18 students per teacher.
Is there a nap time?
Yes! If your preschool or JK camper is staying a full day they will need a crib sheet and a blanket for nap time in a small zipped backpack. Please be sure to mark all articles of clothing and personal belongings with your camper’s first and last name.
Preschool/Pre-Kindergarten campers will nap after lunch for about 90 minutes.
Junior Kindergarten campers will rest after lunch for about 60 minutes.
Please no pillows, stuffed animals, or sleeping bags. Bedding will be sent home on Friday to be laundered and returned on Monday.

Identification may be required to pick up your camper. All campers are to be picked up at their scheduled dismissal time. The campus closes at 6:00 PM.
Will you be providing sunscreen for the campers when they go outside?
We ask that all parents of summer campers apply sunscreen to their child in the morning before the start of camp. Please sign the Sunscreen Utilization Permission Form at the sign-in table on your first day to authorize us to apply sunscreen at lunch time for the rest of the day. This is especially important on waterplay days, as we will be outdoors for a majority of the day.
If your child is allergic to a specific sunscreen, please notify counselor on the first day.
