Great question! Our youngest campers have the option of using the baby pool with a counselor. We will also help your child build confidence in the shallow end of the big pool! We make swimming time fun for everyone! All of our staff members are in the pool OR on the pool deck to make swimming time a happy, safe and comfortable time.
Absolutely! As long as your child is fully potty trained/bathroom independent & is 3 years old by June 1st (beginning of camp season), we are happy to have them join us at Camp!.

Email Sloane Lipson at: summercamp@fishngame.org any time. In addition to being the Camp Director, Sloane is a certified elementary school teacher, with a M.A.T and a background in child development, who worked in an inclusion classroom, in Chatham, for many years & who co-taught with a special education teacher. Sloane is also the mother of a child with special needs. We welcome ALL campers at Camp Fish and Game with open arms!
ABSOLUTELY! What’s great about Camp F&G is that we are able to accommodate children on the swim team! We will walk them to their swim team practice and then pick them up from swim team practice, to ensure their safety at all times! If they come to camp with their swim suit already under their clothing (which we recommend) that reduces the time they need to change. In the past, most swim team campers just threw their clothes right back on over their swimsuit, since it is summer and the cool bathing suit feels nice! When we make the camp schedule, we take into account which children are in Swim Team and we assure they do NOT miss something like “tennis with a pro” since that is only a few times a session. We truly accommodate the campers with swim team the best we can!
Check us out on Social Media! You can follow us on Instagram @campfishngame and Like us on Facebook @campfishngame! We post LOTS of pictures all summer long!
At this time we are on a waitlist. Email SummerCamp@fishngame.org to be added to the waitlist. If an individual is 16 years old and has been a CIT at Camp F&G for at LEAST one year, they are eligible to apply and interview for a paid Jr. Counselor position. The 16 year old must personally email SummerCamp@fishngame.org. However, if it is a first summer for a 16 year old at Camp F&G, they are required to be an unpaid CIT for at least one summer, as an intern, to gain experience and learn our routines.
We would LOVE to have you join the F&G family! Email: membership@fishngame.org for more information! Make sure to write SLOANE LIPSON (CAMP Director) on the top of your application!!
