Registration for Summer 2017

Tenacre Day Camp is excited to announce Registration will be open to NEW Families in January for the summer of 2017! 


The 2016 - 2017 construction project is progressing! Our 2 NEW heated pools will be completed for this summer, in time to accommodate the first wave of campers arriving for the first session.  We will also have a new camp office.  Our temporary office location is in the Tenacre Science Building. 


Welcome to Tenacre Day Camp! We are located in Wellesley, and the camp is situated in a friendly, caring, elementary school setting. The foundation of our success is the quality of our staff, a supportive and nurturing environment, and a welcoming place where each child belongs. The administration and staff strive to make every child feel comfortable and safe in a fun camp setting. Founded in 1973, the camp’s noncompetitive environment fosters self-esteem and individual accomplishments. We hope that your family will join our great camp this season!

The camp offers four two-week sessions for boys and girls ages 3 to 12. We also offer flexibility to our families; parents can sign up for single weeks when available. In addition to our quality Day Camp for children ages 3-12, Tenacre also offers a variety of other ways your children will be enriched by offering June & August Swimming Lessons, Rising Star Sports, and One-Week Specialty programs. A great way to end the summer is our Week 9 Day Camp!

TOURS: Please e-mail or call the camp office telephone 781-235-3238.  We would love to show you our camp! 
My child had a blast! From a parent's perspective, you made it very easy for me; from communications, to drop off, to the responsiveness of staff when I needed it- everything was on point. There is so much value in that for me; to not have to worry, or try to piece together what is going on.  The counselors were true professionals; fun and engaging for the kids, but friendly to parents as well. I liked how they all looked me right in the eye, projected confidence, and showed a love for kids with every interaction!  Everything was so well done, thank you!
