2021 Summer Camps

Summer is our favorite at FFF because we get to spend it with you! This year, we've brought back favorite FFF sessions as well as our four-day week camp format! All camps have new content each summer! So, if you did a reading camp with us last year, reading camp this year will be completely different!

All sessions are four-day camps with a limited number of students to be COVID safe. We know there are a lot of fun and exciting activities to participate in during the summer months throughout our community. Thank you for choosing to spend part of your summer with US!

Wish you could spend the day with us and participate in two camps on one day? Great! Pack a lunch and stay awhile!

Spend the lunch break with us and ask your parents to pick you up at the end of the day!

Preview our Summer Schedule now! Registration opens March 1st. One-day sessions (Friday FUN Days) to be added soon!
