OUR PHILOSOPHY: The Summer Fenn Way

The Summer Fenn Way is about treating others well and helping make someone else’s day better. This is the essence of the Summer Fenn Way, and it guides everything we do.

The Summer Fenn Way is about the acceptance of others. It means being flexible enough to adjust challenges for each individual, so everyone can participate fully while being supported to stretch just a little further.

From the smile and high-5 they receive at check-in, to the traditional freezy-pop treat at pickup, every camper is warmly welcomed into our community whether they  stay for one week or for the entire summer.




At Summer Fenn, our mission is to provide the most stimulating, challenging and enjoyable summer day camp experience for children ages 4 to 15. Combining challenge with support, we provide opportunities for campers to identify their personal strengths, learn new skills, increase self-confidence, and make new friends.  Our varied and flexible program options generate countless opportunities for exploration and creative expression, while enhancing each child's social, physical, moral, and intellectual development.



It is the policy of the Fenn School and Summer Fenn to maintain a camp environment that is free from discrimination and to conduct its practices, programs, financial aid policies and other camp-administrative programs solely on the basis of an individual's merit, qualifications and abilities.
The Fenn School and Summer Fenn do not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability.
