Summer Program at the Tea House Park
The children of the town have always been a top priority of the Society. Our summer program dates as far back as 1905. The Tea House Program, located on the WVIS playground behind the Wenham Tea House, was organized in 1935 and has been offered every summer since its inception. The park program is not a camp but a local recreational park program where local kids get to play, socialize and learn from their older neighbors. The WVIS underwrites a large percentage of the operating costs of the program through its fundraising efforts. It can also provide meaningful summer employment to our local teenagers, all of whom attended the program as a child.
The Park Program Committee is hard at work looking for ways to ever improve the program. We are always open to suggestions and volunteers. For 2019 we are looking to hire a Director. We are talking about bringing back a more formalized tennis program as well. Another piece that we are working on for 2019 is the potential to be able to open the program up even on rainy days. The Committee also is hoping to send out a babysitting list prior to the program so families can set up any additional help before the summer even begins.
