Falcon Center Day Camp

Thank you for your interest in the Falcon Center Day Camp. Like you, we have been continually monitoring COVID-19 developments as the health and safety of campers is our primary focus. In order to maintain safety, we have decided to cancel our 2020 camp. Due to the uncertainty of the coming weeks to months we feel this is in the best interest of campers and staff.

If you have a currently registered camper(s), you do not need to do anything at this time. We will be reaching out directly to those that have already registered in the coming days to initiate a refund. Should you have questions regarding the Falcon Center Day Camp please contact Phil Locante at Philip.locante@fairmontstate.edu. It is our hope to see all of you at camp next summer! Thank you for being part of our Falcon Family.
