Summer Programs

Day Camp

Welcome

2020 Registration for NEW families begins January 7th.  

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!

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 LessonsRising Star Sports, and One-Week Specialty programs. A great way to kick off the summer is with our Pre-Camp Week in June, and a great way to end the summer is our Week 9 Day Camp!

2020 Dates - Join The Fun!

2 Consecutive Weeks


Our 2 consecutive week requirement applies to these following camp weeks:
  • Pre-Camp Week
  • Regular Camp Weeks (June 29 - Aug 21)
  • Week 9 (August 24 - 28)

We offer flexibility to our families; campers sign up for any 2 consecutive weeks, and then can add any single weeks before and after the 2-week minimum is met. Your child can attend one of our Specialty Camps (full day option) to meet the 2 consecutive week requirement in the Day Camp program.

NOTE: Signing up for Rising Star Sports does not meet the requirement for 2 consecutive weeks in Day Camp.
