About Tenacre Summer

Welcome! Tenacre Summer Programs is located in Wellesley, Massachusetts and is situated on Tenacre Country Day School's elementary school campus. 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 us for one of our programs this season!
We are currently full for the Summer of 2024. We hope you will consider joining us for Summer of 2025!

Day Camp offers three program options: the Three's Program for three year olds, the Four's Program for four year olds, and Full Day for children entering K through 6th grade. Day Camp consists of fun, traditional camp activities such as sports, crafts, archery, nature, science, music, and ropes course. Every camper receives a swimming lesson every day, and our Full Day campers get to have an additional free swim period in the afternoon.

Specialty Programs

Our two-week Specialty Camps offer programs for a wide variety of interests that campers might have. While participating in a Specialty Camp, campers spend approximately half of their day focused on their specialty, and half of the day participating in traditional camp activities.

Tenacre Parent

I value the professionalism of the staff and the confidence I have that they are taking care of my child and ensuring his safety and opportunity to explore new things (especially swimming).
