2017 Construction Project
We are very excited to share with you that The Tenacre Country Day School has begun construction on their new community center, theater, cafeteria, and additional classroom spaces! This is a very exciting time for our school community! As the project progresses we want to keep you updated on timelines and the impact the project will have on camp. While there will be construction on-going through the summer of 2017, the safety of your children is our top priority! The impact on campers will be minimal. We will be continuing to post updates to our Facebook page, and update parents via email throughout the project letting you know the areas that will be impacted over the summer. For the most up-to-date information, you can visit http://www.tenacrecds.org/Page/Support-Tenacre/At-The-Forefront-Campaign/Tenacre-Construction-Zone
for current timelines, and a construction camera with live feed to the site.
We are thrilled that camp will have 2 brand new HEATED pools for summer 2017! The swimming pools are specially designed to provide the safest and best possible instructional settings. The pools are on track to be completed for this summer, in time to accommodate the first wave of campers arriving in week 1. We hope to have them up and running in time for June swim lessons too!
Pool #1 : The first pool is similar in size to our old pool (approx 50' x 25'). It is a teaching pool (3' to 3' 6'') for our younger age groups to learn how to swim.
Pool #2 : Large pool (70' x 40') that gradually slopes from 3' depth to 9' depth at the deepest portion. This will allow our older campers more room to practice their strokes, and refine their swimming skills.
Art and Music Buildings
The Art and Music buildings provide perfect space to carry on our music, clay, and arts and crafts programs. The art building features all elementary art equipment and materials. The beautiful music room is a great space for our campers to sing their favorite camp songs!
The Academic Building houses the school's library, technology center, five classrooms, a courtyard, and administration offices. The academic building conveniently connects to the existing facilities allowing lots of space for summer programs.
The playhouse offers a large floor space and stage for a variety of activities throughout the summer.
The School House Building has many spacious rooms and serves as the home of our youngest campers. These groups have their own room with a large variety of pre-school toys and games.
Tenacre Science Center
The Tenacre Science Center provides the focus for our nature and specialty programs. The center features 2 large classrooms, a greenhouse, and a tidal pool.
Centennial Field is a regulation-size soccer and field hockey field.
The regulation size gymnasium is an excellent location for our indoor instructional sports and games program. Located next to the gym are two locker rooms.
Ropes Challenge Course
The ropes course was again a tremendous success last summer. A ropes course is a place where one can climb high or try to balance on a swinging beam while learning to trust peers. The ropes course curriculum is filled with important values like teamwork, sportsmanship, cooperation, effort, and meeting challenges. It is supervised by a fully trained and certified mature staff.
Cafeteria - under construction
The beautiful new cafeteria and dining room will be a wonderful space for our summer programs in 2018.
