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 runs for 9 weeks for boys and girls ages 3 to 12. We also offer flexibility to our families; parents can sign up for any 2 consecutive weeks, and then add single weeks before and after the 2-week minimum is met. 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! 
Our daughter loved the camp so mouch that we signed her up for additional weeks.  The drop off and pick up was so easy and key for us.  We really liked the swimming lessons too.  We'll be back for 2017!

Our campers are 3 - 12 years old, and most come from Wellesley and neighboring towns.  In any given season, approximately 500 children will participate in our camp and specialty weeks.  Tenacre Day Camp has a highly regarded swim program and most of our younger non-swimmers will learn to swim at Tenacre.

Tenacre nurtures and challenges each child, every day.
