Camp Description

Founded in 1947, the Fessenden Day Camp has a long standing commitment to provide children, ages 3.5-13, with an opportunity to have fun, grow, and thrive in a safe, positive and enriching atmosphere. Our program is a carefully selected combination of traditional camp favorites and exciting 21st century activities. The Fessenden Day Camp strives to create a culture of teamwork and trust in which campers and staff make positive memories and lasting friendships.


Dedicated, Mature Staff

Most all of the staff have been returning year after year. Quite a few were campers themselves! Almost all of our specialists are teachers and have been working with children for many years.

Excellent Aquatics Program

Camp families continue to praise the Fessenden Day Camp swim program. The Red Cross Learn to Swim program is offered in smaller group ratios so that children can receive more individualized attention.
