Registration for 2022 opened on December 9th for returning families and January 5th for new families.
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!
We offer camp programs for boys and girls ages 3 to 12.
Rising Star Sports (ages 3 - Entering 2nd Grade)
Regular Camp Weeks (ages 3 - Entering 6th Grade)
*If your child is turning 3-years-old during the summer, please respect our age requirement. For the THREES program, campers must be three by (or during) their first week of camp in order to participate.
2022 Session Dates At a minimum, campers must attend a two-week session. In an effort to keep our camper groups/pods consistent, the summer sessions are sold as two-week blocks and cannot be split up.
We typically have 250 - 300 campers a day. 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 with outdoor heated pools. For many campers, Tenacre is the first place they learn to swim.
Each week we have a special theme and campers can dress up on Fridays if they choose. Our "Fun Friday" activities are created around the weekly themes.
