The Threes

THE BEST FIRST CAMP EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR CHILD

Age: 3 years old  

Tenacre Day Camp offers the best first camp experience for your child in an exciting, nurturing program specifically for this unique preschool age! This program is for children 3 years of age and toilet trained by the start of camp. Children utilize our elementary school facility, playgrounds, and pools.

The Threes program is half day from 8:25 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.  We will be able to offer Extended Afternoons from 1:00 p.m. - 3:15 p.m. this summer. If you want to enroll your three year old in Extended Afternoons, they must stay for Extended Afternoons for a minimum of three days a week. Families will be able to select which days work best for them during registration. 

Is your 3 year old interested in fun activities? This program encourages social interaction, creativity, and imagination within a safe, non-competitive, and caring environment. Half Day Camp activities include instructional swim, sports, arts and crafts, music, playground, nature, storytime, yoga and more.
I value the excellent 1:1 swim lessons!

List of 6 items.

  • Swimming Lessons

    We believe that swimming is an important life-saving skill and we continually get top marks for our swim program on the Parent Surveys. THE THREES have a swim lesson each day, and most 3 year olds swim 1:1.  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.

    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.  
  • Theme Weeks

    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.

Minimum Enrollment
There is a 2-week minimum in the Day Camp (June 27 - August 19). Enrolling for two-weeks gives children the chance to settle into camp, get to know new friends, and experience all of the camp activities.  We find that campers who participate in multiple weeks of camp improve their skills and feel more confident in their abilities. The Rising Star Sports sessions are stand alone weeks.
