Full Day (K - 6th)

Availability for 2022
Camp filled up very quickly this year, and most of our sessions are full. To find out more about availability, please contact aperry@tenacrecds.org. When asking about availability, please provide your child's entering grade, and the sessions you are interested in.  If you would like to join the waitlist, please submit a registration form online.  There is no deposit and no obligation to enroll if you are waitlisted. We will contact you if anything becomes available. 

The Full Day Camp consists of two divisions, Lower Camp (K & 1st) and Upper Camp (2nd - 6th).  A series of activities are planned to ensure a day of variety and fun. In addition to a daily swim lesson, our camp activities may include: sports, arts, music, recreational swim, dance & movement, nature, science, crafts, gaga ball, and more! There is also some emphasis on outdoor education woven into the camp program. The instructional activities may include creative arts, high-low ropes course, clay, archery and swimming.  

Lower Camp: Entering K - 1st Grade

The Lower Camp offers a well-rounded experience in a nurturing and noncompetitive environment.  This age group introduces exciting activities such as archery and low ropes course. Children have a swim lesson in the morning and a recreational swim time in the afternoon. 
We will update our camp families in the spring about what swimming will look like for Summer 2022.  In Summer 2021, all of our campers had a swimming lesson every day.  

Our facilities have air conditioned buildings, an archery range, fields, a large gymnasium, two heated, outdoor pools. They wonderfully support our elementary school-aged campers.  

 

Upper Camp: Entering 2nd - 6th Grade

As children progress from lower camp to upper camp, choice activities become a part of their program. We put daily opportunities into the schedule that allow the children in Upper Camp to spend extra time in activities that they find the most exciting, and to spend more time with campers of similar interests.  Choices may include science experiments, art, yoga, friendship bracelets, dance, gaga ball, hand sewing projects, board-games, indoor tennis, ultimate frisbee, newcomb, capture the flag, and more!   In addition, when schedule allows, the oldest campers have a  Big Buddy activity with our 4 year olds.

All of the Choice Activities are led or supervised by one of our Activity Specialists to ensure that the campers get quality instruction.
We will update our camp families in the spring about whether or not COVID-19 guidelines allow for group mixing.

In Upper Camp, the children have a swimming lesson every morning, and have a recreational swim period on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

List of 5 items.

  • Swimming Lessons

    We believe that swimming is an important life-saving skill and we continually get top marks for our swim program. The Full Day Campers have a swim lesson each morning and the group lesson size is small. 

    The swim staff is entirely separate from the counselor staff, and all members of the swim staff hold Lifeguard Training (LGT) certification, and some hold Water Safety Instructor (WSI) certification. On the first day of each session, the new campers are tested for their swimming ability, and at the end of each child's enrollment in camp, an evaluation of progress is sent home in the form of a swim report.

    In addition to offering instructional swimming, we also offer recreational swimming as an activity. The children in Lower Camp have a recreational swim time in the afternoon Monday - Friday. The children in Upper Camp have a recreational swim time in the afternoon Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
