2014 Camp Information
(Camp Code: TNXDCO)
This year we are offering 3 weeks of day and half day camp for kids ages 8-18 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. Full Day Campers bring their lunch or lunch is available for purchase.
Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
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.
