COMMON QUERIES

WHAT IS A DAY OF CAMP LIKE?

A typical day of camp has a blend of group time for the campers to form relationships and bonds within their similar aged groups. The other parts of the day are filled with free play options that allow the campers some independence and choices in how they spend their time at camp!

HOW ARE THE CHILDREN GROUPED TOGETHER AND CAN MY CHILD BE WITH THEIR FRIEND?

Children will be grouped together by the grade they are entering following the summer. It is possible that a camper can be moved up or down to make even groups. In a non-COVID impacted program, the campers will have free option time where they can choose to play with kids from another group.

If your child would like to be with another camper please include that in the registration questions when signing up. We do not guarantee this is possible but we will do our best to accommodate. We prefer if campers stay within one grade, for example: a 5th grader can go to a 4th or a 6th grade group.

ARE CELL PHONES ALLOWED AT CAMP?

We do allow cell phones at camp but we encourage them to stay in backpacks. Our staff are not responsible for lost or damaged items at camp so please use your parental discretion when choosing to send your child with any electronics.

WHAT TYPE OF TRAINING DO THE COUNSELORS RECEIVE?

Even though our staff are complete rockstars at what they do, we still go through training every year. All Head Coaches are CPR and First Aid Certified. We also go through our FAST Coaches Training which discusses everything mandated by the State DPH and then we cover all of our proprietary fun training.

MY CHILD HAS SPECIFIC MEDICAL NEEDS, WHO SHOULD I TALK TO?

FAST has a licensed BSN RN, that oversees the medical forms and medical training of our staff. This RN is not always on site at camp but has trained our First Aider on medication administration and minor injury care in accordance with the CT DPH rules and regulations and the guidance set forth by our Camp Physician, Dr. Skarvinko.
