Designated Airport: Gulfport/Biloxi Regional Airport (GPT) – 60 miles from campus
Nike Tennis Camp does not provide any transportation to/from camp from airport, train stations or bus depots. If you fly into camp, we recommend that you fly into Gulfport/Biloxi Regional Airport and schedule a shuttle from the airport to camp.
If you have a camper arriving by air and is deemed an “unaccompanied minor” by the airlines and must be met by a camp staff or shuttle company employee, there may be a fee that needs to be paid in advance of camp. You will still have to arrange transportation to/from camp. Please call 1-800-645-3226 two weeks prior to camp to provide camper’s flight and shuttle information.
We have always planned our camp with "mother nature" in mind, if it were to rain we will always have some sort of activity usually dealing the the mental part of the game. For example, we will have stations where we talk about "College Tennis", "RTP", "Agility", "Mental Toughness" and these are only a few examples of things we have planned.
A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. Our health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp.
