    Good instruction made camp FUN

    July 06, 2017: Austin really enjoyed the grand-slam match play. He also liked having his own room. (We think the residence halls are great! We also think he met some nice kids.) Our son says "a couple of counselors did not seem into it (teaching tennis) or paid attention to us at all." He really liked Ryan, Kelsey, John, Michael, and Steven--"they were nice, gave good instruction, and made the camp FUN.

    need air-conditioned rooms

    7/27/2016 - The girls really suffered being in rooms without air conditioning during this heat wave. If you cannot ensure that they are in air-conditioned rooms next year it may be a deal breaker.
