Best Summer Ever

Join us for the Best Summer Ever! At FSPY we have camps that all children will enjoy. Our camp brochure is out now. With camps for every age group, children will have a summer to remember!

Update on summer camps as of May 26, 2020:
At this time, we are still planning to offer several of our camps this summer: Discovery, Explorer and Adventure. We also have made the decision to cancel the following camps: Apple Seeds, Little Sprouts, Crossroads, Gymnastics, Dance, Cheer, Cook, Big Top Y, Splash and Sports Unlimited. It was a difficult decision, but due to new guidelines and capacity regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, we are working in the best interest of our campers, families and staff.

Our camp team has been working closely with experts in the camping field and Y-USA on ways to safely run camp this summer. Y-USA has been working with the American Camping Association and CDC and together they have hired Environmental Health and Engineering (EH&E), to work on safety procedures and protocols. Your child’s health and safety is our main priority.

Our intention right now is to move forward with our Discovery, Explorer and Adventure Camps with modifications to meet state health and safety regulations. However, we are still waiting on the go ahead to run any of our camps from the state and for the most up-to-date guidelines. We will be in further contact with camp families as more information is made available to us.

Read our latest camp update email here. The information provided is for those registered for Summer Camp 2020 and includes information on updated procedures and provides the option to opt-in or out of camp for this summer.
