Application & Interview

We are CLOSED for Summer 2020. The really tough decision to cancel is out of a sense of love and safety for the children and staff that go to camp.  It helps us to know that we are going to be back together next summer to have a lot of fun!

In order to apply for the summer season, please fill out the online staff application and attach a resume if possible.  If your qualifications meet our needs, we will contact you to schedule a face-to-face interview, at which time you must present a government issued photo ID with address (Driver’s License). During the interview process, we also require the following background check forms:   CORI (Criminal Offender Background Check with Juvenile Records) and SORI (Sex Offender Background Check). 

Please direct any questions about summer employment to:

Background Checks & Fingerprints

Tenacre is required by Massachusetts law to obtain a fingerprint-based criminal background check, and we must submit and receive back a CORI (Criminal Offender Record Information with Juvenile records) and SORI (Sexual Offender Registry Inquiry) on each staff person prior to hiring the individual. The CORI and SORI forms require an individual to present a CURRENT government issued photo ID with address (Driver’s License) STUDENT ID’S ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE. The CORI and SORI forms are not due with the application, but will be filled out during the interview process.

Hired Staff will be provided with information about how to register for a fingerprinting appointment using our Provider ID.

Recommendations & Work Verification

Tenacre Day Camp requires the following for New Staff (after the interview):
  • (3) Personal References.  A minimum of three references is required for camp. Reference request forms are sent and submitted digitally via an online form upon employment application submission. References cannot be relatives.
