Camp Program Offerings

Day campers can choose between Full Day (9:00am-4:00pm) and Half Day (9:00am-12:00pm) options. In addition to All Skills program, we also offer Tournament Training during certain weeks as well as a College Training Camp. Each day will include morning and afternoon tennis sessions consisting of instruction, drills and match play. Demonstrations will divide each session into different segments. Upon arrival, all campers are evaluated and placed in one of three instructional programs.

Beginners

Learn the fundamentals for all strokes, including proper grips, stroke mechanics, footwork, movement, and balance. Introduce match play. For players ages 5-10  who are just learning the sport we offer a "QuickStart" or "10 and Under" program. This program provides a positive introduction to tennis fundamentals and low key match play situations for younger campers.  Balls are low-compression so they are easier to hit, allowing kids to get to the ball and develop optimal swing patterns.  Racquets are sized to smaller hands for better grip and control.  Courts are smaller and easier to cover so that kids can focus on developing tactical and technical skills—with more success and less frustration. 

Intermediate

Strengthen strokes to develop more power and control. Examine match play strategies to help improve competitive skills.

Advanced

Refine stroke production, increase power and improve match play skills through advanced drills, physical training and singles and doubles competition. The Tournament Training Program geared towards tournament level and ranked players looking to improve their tournament results, learn winning strategies and work on mental toughness. 

College Training Camp

We are offering a College Training Camp from June 23-26, 2017 for players ages 13-17. Campers can choose between an Overnight or Day (9:00am-4:00pm) camp.

  • This College Training Camp is ideally suited for tournament-level junior players who are on a pathway for playing college tennis
  • Strong emphasis will be placed on player development with intense drilling and fitness sessions 
  • College coaches will share their insight on competing at the highest level
  • Special focus will be given to strategy and tactics during point play
  • Will feature information sessions on preparing your game for college tennis as well as in-depth presentations on conducting a recruiting search
  • Camp will also provide competitive match play and mental toughness training

    will absolutely be doing this camp again

    8/1/2015 - This was my 6 year old son's first real experience with tennis as well as camp without other children that he knew. He LOVED it and even begged to switch from 1/2 day program to the full day. We will absolutely be doing this camp again as much as possible next summer and I am thrilled that he is excited about learning to play tennis!

    could not have been any happier with her experience at camp

    7/31/2015 - My daughter is 8 years old and attended your overnight camp last week. We were very nervous how she would deal with not only her first experience at a sleep away camp but also being the youngest overnighter by far.  By all accounts, she could not have been any happier with her experience at camp and in turn so are we.  While we thought it might be too much tennis for her, her week at camp only served to fuel her passion and enjoyment for the sport.  She is excited to get back out on the court and ready to go back to camp for another week. I know the social aspects of the camp were perhaps the most challenging for my daughter. All in all she was very happy with her experience with the older kids;The quote of the week as far as I am concerned was, “because I am a pee wee everyone is taking care of me”.  I can not say enough about you and your counselors for making her week so great and truly thank all of you for your hard work and concern for my little girl.

    had fun and I got a good workout

    7/31/2015 - I liked competing for and winning the awards. I improved my serve. Do you offer private lessons or matches so I can practice throughout the year? Thank you for the camp and thanks for teaching me the tennis lessons. I had fun and I got a good workout every day. I made a new friend. Please put me on your list to come back next year.

    great supervision

    7/23/2015 - My daughter developed a finger infection during camp and the staff was very attentive to her needs and kept me abreast of what was going on. Additionally, they attended to her daily until the infection was clear. It was a great experience and kept me at ease knowing that my child was under great supervision. Thank you!
