    Dear Camp Families,
    I hope you are staying well and keeping your spirits up. 

    Thank you for your patience  and understanding  as we work to determine the best path forward  for summer programming in light of the pandemic. The Governor of Massachusetts has said that camps can open in Phase 2, but the guidance is not yet available.  

    Time Line for Decisions
    We will send you an email next week with our update about running camp on-site.

    What would on-site camp look like? 
    If we can safely reopen camp, there would be an updated health screening process and increased cleaning procedures.  Camp would look different this summer.  We would need to down-size the program so that each group has their own designated classroom space.  Because of this, we would only be able to accept campers entering 1st grade – 6th grade.  Activities would be adjusted (this includes swimming), and group sizes would be smaller.  There would be 8 campers with 2-3 counselors. Staff would wear face masks when feasible, and also it is possible that campers would also need to wear face masks when they can’t socially distance.  Groups would not mingle together.  Campers would bring their own nut-free lunch and snack. Aftercamp child care would not be available. If we do run camp on-site this summer, we understand that choosing to send your child is a highly personal decision  and we support whatever choice you feel is appropriate for your family. 

    All Weeks for 3 - 5 Year Olds
    We take great pride in knowing that we build an environment where parents feel confident that their young children are engaged in programs that prioritize safety above everything else.  We have been tirelessly working to determine how we can safely host 3 – 5 year olds (entering Kindergarten) that meet the external and internal expectations of our programs. In consideration of the factors mentioned above and with a very heavy heart, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all weeks of camp for 3 to 5 year olds.  If we can open camp, we will only be able to accommodate entering 1st– 6th graders.  Please know that this is a safety-based decision. 

    Thank you for your patience as we navigate these unprecedented challenges.  With summer quickly approaching, we are mindful that our families need to have a clear vision of what the camp season will look like. That vision needs to be communicated sooner rather than later so that each member of our community can make informed decisions about how to manage their unique individual situations.

    With gratitude for our camp community,
    Libby, Barb, and Marcie
Our Rising Star Sports program is a great experience for young campers and introduces them to the Tenacre facility and staff.

3 year olds - entering 2nd grade
Hours: 9:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
2020 Dates: This program will not be running for Summer 2020
Price: $275 per week

In addition to our Day Camp program, Tenacre offers two week-long sessions of sports for children ages 3 to entering 2nd grade. Now in its 10th year, the primary goal of Rising Star Sports is to have fun while building skills and confidence through drills and games. In addition to the Head Coach, there will be counselors (assistant coaches) working with each age group.  There is a 1:4 counselor-to-camper ratio with the 3-year-olds, and a 1:5 ratio with the other age groups.  

Depending upon age, children play soccer and t-ball/baseball. The Tenacre School's fields are used for these programs. During inclement weather, the School's indoor facilities will be used.

What Players Need To Bring
  • A baseball glove is needed Wednesday - Friday. 
  • Sneakers are required every day. Shin guards and cleats are optional.  
  • Water breaks and snacks are provided. Water bottles are optional (not necessary).
  • Hat and sunscreen are highly suggested.
