In April 2007, Camelot Home for Boys was rededicated in honor of our late founder Russell Fiske. The facility was
renamed Fiske Academy at Camelot. Jon Fiske, Russell's son, is our Director of Operations. Ana Pascual is our
Director of Contractual Services.
The children we care for are placed with us via Family Court, Magistrate Court, Youth Rehabilitative Services and Division
of Family Services. The youth are between the ages of 10 to 18 years of age and will reside here until they are able
to return home to their families or find a foster home. A child's stay at Fiske Academy can be as little as 24 hours
or as long as a year.
During a child's stay with us, we are responsible for every aspect of the child's life which includes transporation to
school, court appointments, medical appointments and all care. In 2007 we began participating in the National School
Lunch and School Breakfast program in accordance with U.S. Department of Agriculture policy.
To accommodate the ever changing needs of the children, we recently have contracted to have an on-site certified teacher
and an on-site visiting nurse. Our on-site teacher provides education to those children who are unable to attend their
regular public, private or alternative school. Our on-site nurse provides health screenings as well as supervises the
medication log. By providing these two services, Fiske Academy is at the forefront when it comes to providing thorough
care for these children in need.
We are uncertain what the future holds for our organization, but when faced with hurdles we will give all we have to
clear them and move forward so that we can continue this most needed service for Delaware's children.
