2015 Camp Information

This year we are offering three weeks of day (9:00am-3:00pm) and half day camp (9:00am-11:45am) for ages 7-18 of all skill levels. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.

More Details
10 and Under Tennis

In addition, we offer a “10 and Under Tennis” program, featuring the USTA’s successful  new teaching format. This is an exciting new way kids 10 and under are learning to play tennis as well as compete. The courts are smaller and balls are  low-compression so they are easier to hit, allowing kids to get to the ball and develop optimal swing patterns. It all makes it easy and fun for them to hit, play and score from the start, while developing skills that will last a lifetime. Please note: This program is optional and younger campers may opt to play regular tennis on the full courts. We will have full set up (court sizes, nets and various ball types) for 12 and under tennis, 10 and under tennis, and 8 and under tennis so that all ages can play in the correct format!

We'll be back!

The Director, Tim Wilkinson, did a great job with the program. He was accessible and active in the training of all of the campers. The counselors were full of knowledge and knew how to make tennis (in the heat of Summer...FUN.) My children loved the camp and wanted to go to the second week but we had a wedding to attend that week. We plan on attending again next year!
