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!
Q: My child is on swim team, can I still register them for Camp?
A: 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!
Q: How can I find out even more about camp?
A: 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!
Q: Can I still sign up my 11-14 y/o to be a CIT?
A: Absolutely! Visit our website and print out an application. www.fishngame.org Sign up asap! Spots fill up quickly.
If an individual is 14 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 14 year old must personally email me. However, if it is a first summer for a 14 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. Some 14 year olds (who are returning CITS) also feel they need one more year as a CIT intern, as they do not yet feel comfortable taking on the full responsibilities of a Jr. Counselor.
Q: How can I become a Member of F&G?
A: We would LOVE to have you join the F&G family! Email: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information! Make sure to write SLOANE LIPSON (CAMP Director) on the top of your application!!
Q: I still have questions. Who can answer them?
A: Email the Camp Director, Sloane Lipson at: email@example.com
