Travel

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 Detroit Metro Airport and schedule a shuttle from the airport to camp.

If you have a camper arriving by air who is deemed an “unaccompanied minor” by the airlines and must be met by a camp staff or shuttle company employee, there will 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.

Registration Packet

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.

    Overall the camp was great

    8/4/2014 - I think players should be grouped by ability and also age. A good player needs to play with the same level or higher to make it challenging. Overall the camp was great and will consider going next summer.

    great experience, improve food

    8/1/2014 - The lunches that were provided were very good. However, the dinners and the breakfast were bland, mediocre and no selection. Given that we were playing tennis 7 hours a day, there should be better oversight and thought put into nutrition for the young players. Otherwise, it was a great experience and fun!
