Built confidence at camp
August 5, 2021: Charles not only learned new tennis skills, he also built confidence in his ability to improve with practice! He was also delighted to make new friends. Thank you for an awesome week! Also, the half-day schedule was perfect for him this year, so I'm very glad that was an option.

Excellent camp, will recommend!
August 1, 2021: Brodie absolutely loved this camp! His father and I both work so he has had to be a summer "Camp Kid," for as long as he can remember. He goes to a lot of tennis camps but this one both challenged him & improved his game, all while having a great time! It was intense for sure, but at the end of the week, he asked me to sign him up for all the weeks next summer! Excellent camp I will recommend for sure!
