2015 Camp Information

This year we are offering 3 weeks of day and half day camp for kids ages 7-18 of all skill levels. Campers have the option to choose between a Full Day program from 8:30am-4:00pm, an AM Half Day program from 8:30am-11:30am, or a PM Half Day program from 1:00pm-4:00pm. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.

More Details
10 and Under Tennis

In addition to our all skills program, we offer a “10 and Under Tennis” program  for kids ages 8-10, featuring the USTA’s successful  new teaching format. This is an exciting new way kids 10 and under are learning to play tennis as well as compete. The courts are smaller and balls are  low-compression so they are easier to hit, allowing kids to get to the ball and develop optimal swing patterns. It all makes it easy and fun for them to hit, play and score from the start, while developing skills that will last a lifetime. Please note: This program is optional and younger campers may opt to play regular tennis on the full courts. For more information on “10 and Under Tennis” programs nationwide, Click Here to check out the USTA website.

LOVED the Camp!

My kids were apprehensive about this camp. They do not participate in summer camps. The loved it. They learned so much and are excited about playing tennis now. They also enjoyed meeting the other students who were local as well as from places like Switzerland and Hawaii. They played tennis with beginners all the way to competitive players. It was a fabulous experience!
