Tenacre Summer Programs is located at Tenacre Country Day School, an independent elementary school in Wellesley, Massachusetts. During the school year, our campus is home to roughly 200 students from PK through 6th grade. Because of our elementary school setting, our facilities are perfect for our campers during the summer.
Our two outdoor, heated pools were built in 2017. The swimming pools are specially designed to provide the safest and best possible instructional settings.
Pool #1: The first pool is approximately 50 feet by 25 feet. It is a teaching pool (3' to 3' 6'' depth) for our younger age groups to learn how to swim.
Pool #2: Our larger pool is approximately 70 feet by 40 feet and gradually slopes from 3' depth to 9' depth. This pool allows our older campers more room to practice their strokes and refine their swimming skills.Art and Music
The Art and Music rooms provide perfect space to carry on our music, clay, and arts and crafts programs. The art room features all elementary art equipment and materials. The beautiful music room is a great space for our campers to sing their favorite camp songs!
The main Academic Building houses the school's library, technology center, classrooms, a courtyard, and administrative offices. The academic building conveniently connects to the existing facilities allowing lots of space for summer programs.
The playhouse is located inside the main building and offers a large floor space and stage for a variety of activities throughout the summer - rain or shine!
The School House Building has many spacious rooms and serves as the home for The Three's and The Four's programs. These groups have their own home-base classrooms that serve as a familiar place for the campers to eat snack and lunch, store their belongings, and play with a variety of pre-school toys and games.
Tenacre Science Center
This building has 2 large classroom spaces with sinks. The health office and Crafts activity are housed in the Science Center.
Centennial Field is a regulation-size soccer and field hockey field and is home to many of our activities.
The regulation size gymnasium is an excellent location for our indoor instructional sports and games program, and our indoor Ropes and Challenge course is on the other side. Located next to the gym are two locker rooms for changing for swimming.
Ropes Challenge Course
A ropes course is a place where one can climb high or try to balance on a swinging beam while learning to trust peers. The ropes course curriculum is filled with important values like teamwork, sportsmanship, cooperation, effort, and meeting challenges. It is supervised by a fully trained and certified mature staff.Dining Room and Community Center with Stage
The beautiful Dining Room and Community Center are wonderful, flexible spaces for a variety of activities and some of our specialty camp programs.
