Thank you, Summer 2016 Camper Families!

Aug. 29th 2016

To all Fair Acres Campers and Families,

I cannot believe the summer has come to an end! It seems like just yesterday that Session 1 was kicking off…Nonetheless, I wanted to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for another amazing summer!

It certainly was one for the record books, and it never would have been possible without the support and dedication of all our Fair Acres families…

From Color Wars to Water Day, Carnival Day, Mystery Day, Cardboard Boat Races, Chris the Magician, and even the first ever Fair Acres Olympics – each and every day was special and unforgettable in its own way.

I made memories and friendships I will hold in my heart and remember forever, and I know our campers did too…

It makes me sad to know this summer is over and the final hours of camp have passed, but I am even more excited, because I know there are so many more amazing summers to come – and I can’t wait to see what Fair Acres has in store for us next year!

I hope you all have a wonderful school year; do your best, play as much as you can, and always remember the friends you made down by Shubels Pond, playing Pirate Ship on the court, and the endless games of Capture the Flag…until next summer at Fair Acres!

Over and out … Miss you all already!

2016 Summer Camp Memories

Aug. 18th 2016


The tan lines will fade, but the memories won’t…

Ah, summer camp. The sun-drenched days filled with games, cheers and crafts, and the campfire nights of toasting marshmallows on the shores of Shubael Pond — not to mention skill-building, creating memories and bonding with friends children often keep forever. That’s what we call,”good ol’ camp fun!”

“Fair Acres has provided an amazing summer camp experience for our children. They count down the days until camp starts, and have only the best daily reports of their time at camp. The owners, staff, and camp counselors are absolutely wonderful. I feel so lucky to have this beautiful place so close to our home, and love that my children get to have an old fashioned, healthy, outdoor summer camp experience.” ~ Amy Powers


“It’s the best camp ever! I want to go forever and be a counselor when I get older!” ~ Olivia Powers, 2016 Viking


“Fair Acres is my favorite place ever! I love it so much! I love all the games we play and how the counselors play with us all the time.” Quinn Powers, 2016 Raider


“My favorite part of summer camp was making new friends and being around my counselors – they were so much fun. I love them!” ~ Haven Hill, 2016 Raider

“At camp, you have the chance to experience so many different activities and meet so many people. This summer I really improved my swimming and soccer skills.” ~ Colt Hill, 2016 Viking


“My favorite part of Fair Acres is hanging out with the counselors, they are fun, kind, always play, and help when you need it!” ~ Evey Abbo, 2016 Viking


“I love that it is such a friendly environment, no one is ever bored, their is always something going on or something to do!” ~ Maddy Perry, 2016 Bulldog, 8th year at Fair Acres


“My favorite part of Fair Acres is the big playground, because I love playing with friends on the train! I love to swim too, especially diving for rings!” ~ Fiona Woodbrey, 2016 Blackbear


“I want to give a huge shout out to Curt and Jodi because my family trusts them to keep me safe and to hire counselors to have fun and always make sure we are enjoying each and everyday! Thank you Curt and Jodi!” ~ Jenna Schmit, 2016 Bulldog, 8th year at Fair Acres


“I have met so many new friends this summer, it is so cool because I look forward to seeing them again all year, which is why the summer is so great! Oh, and I can’t forget about Campfire Night, playing the camp-wide game and roasting s’mores by the campfire!” ~ Ally Webb, 2016 Viking

Our Dynamic Fair Acres Summer Camp Team

Aug. 4th 2016


“I said a BOOM CHIKKA BOOM,” sings Gabe Rourke, one of our most energetic counselors at Fair Acres, to kick off one of our first circles during Session 3 with a bang! I continued to hear those same lyrics sung by our campers for the rest of the week, it was AWESOME!

I cannot believe we are already half way through the summer, and moving forward our goal at camp is to make every camp day better than the last, which starts with our amazing staff. All of our fantastic counselors were selected from a pool of highly qualified candidates and went through a comprehensive orientation and training process. We were happy to welcome back some of our counselors from last summer, including Nathaniel, Maranda, and Kylie, who are bubbly, caring, energetic, and very silly. We were also delighted to bring on some new members of our Fair Acres team, Matt and Clair, who were, I dare to say, more excited for camp then our campers! And that is a statement I do not take lightly.

During the off-camp season our counselors are in schools all over the country, from San Diego State in California, High Point University in North Carolina, to the University in Chicago in Illinois – and, also right here in our neck of the woods, at Massachusetts Maritime Academy. Our staff are members of Division I rowing teams, varsity ice hockey players, and even counselors that have been drafted for their skills on the court! We have quite the dynamic team here and we are so excited to share their amazing experiences and excitement with your campers! Let’s gets ready for another great week!

All the best,

Fair Acres Camp Director
