2015 Kalamazoo College Nike Tennis Camp Information
This year we are offering two weeks of Overnight tennis camp and Day camp for kids ages 9-18 of all skill levels. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own tennis instruction needs can be addressed throughout the week.
- All campers check in on Sunday between 12:30-2:00pm at the dorms (TBD for 2014).
- Graduation: 3:00pm on Thursday at the courts. Parents are invited to attend!
- Check-out: 3:30pm immediately following the graduation.
Campers will utilize Kalamazoo College's Stowe Stadium which features 11 lit hard courts.
2015: Dorms TBD | 2014: Overnight campers will stay in the dorms (name TBD) on campus. Campers can request roommates, otherwise they will be placed in rooms based on gender and age.
All meals are provided for overnight campers starting with dinner on check-in day and ending with lunch on check-out day. Lunch is provided for Day campers Mon-Thurs.
For overnight campers, evening activities may include pizza and movie nights, talent shows, games and free play at courts.
Weekend stayovers are not available at this location
Detroit Metropolitan Wayne County Airport
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.
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.
