Camp Program Offerings
College Tour Program for High School Players: July 23-August 4
This program is an exciting way for high school players ages 13-18 to experience two separate beautiful college campuses, while working on their tennis game and making new friends. Campers will check-in and spend the first week at Williams College and then be transported by bus after the first week to Amherst College, where they will spend the duration of their time. Campers may also choose to sign up for each week separately and not stay over during the weekend.
All Skills Program
All sessions are open to players of all abilities unless otherwise noted. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. The All Skills program is designed for tennis players of any skill level and background. Campers will learn fundamentals and improve upon their game.
