(Camp Code: TNXRTA)
This year we are offering five weeks of camp for kids of all ability levels and ages 9-18. Campers can choose between overnight camp, extended day camp (9:00am-9:00pm) or simply the day camp (9:00am-4:00pm). There is a special high school component during the last two weeks of camp. The High School Program is for players ages 13-18 currently on their high school team and wanting to move up the ladder or those planning on making the high school team.
Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
