Click HERE to view the Tanglewood Camp 2017 Catalog

Tanglewood is excited to provide a unique opportunity for your child to learn about their relationship to the natural world while supporting their physical, social, and intellectual growth.  Each camp offers a wide variety of activities that provide campers with outdoor adventures.  Your child will explore and make discoveries on our 300 acres and have up close encounters with our resident animals. 

Returning this summer:
Extended before and after care from 8am-5pm
Half day camps for PreK

Parents and grandparents at a family/senior membership or above can register children/grandchildren.  Membership must be current at time of registration and during the selected camp session.  If you need to become a member, please click here Online Membership Application.  Membership applications are processed Monday-Friday only. 

Troubleshooting online registrations: as you fill out the registration form, please be sure to enter something in every text box - if your child does not have an allergy, for example, type in "n/a".

Everything you need to know is in the camp catalog!



 
Counselors-in-Training for Ages 15+
Becoming a Counselor in Training is a great way to gain leadership experience while working in nature!
Counselors-in-Training (CITs) are youth leaders aged 15+ who assist the camp counselors in providing a safe and fun camp experience at Tanglewood. They will help lead environmental education activities, games, crafts, songs, stories, hikes, and more. Our CITs will also assist with camp preparation, check-in and check-out, and will serve as a positive role model for children in camp. This is an educational position that will involve being placed with two counselors each session. CIT applications can be found here and are due by May 15th to the CIT Coordinator, Bridget Sharry (volunteer.tanglewood@gmail.com).


Scholarships:
As always, our goal is to make our unique and fun programs available to all. We have a camp assistance fund created by generous donors. In 2017, we will have one scholarship position opportunity for each week of summer camp. To learn more about the scholarships for financially eligible families, or to contribute to the scholarship fund, please contact Deanna. The scholarship application is here (PDF). The membership fee waiver application is here (PDF).
