Love every minute
July 24, 2017: Luke loves every minute of this camp.
— Karen H. Parent

— June H. Parent
Had a great time!!
July 25, 2017: Syaa had a hard time initially with the altitude and some personal issues. She hadn't been to sleepaway camp before. The staff did a great job of communicating with us and keep her engaged and motivated. By the third day Syaa had gotten over her issues and was having a great time playing tennis and making new friends. She definitely wants to come back next year which is a great sign - she was asking to return before we'd even gotten into the car to drive home. Big thanks to the staff for their understanding and support. Syaa had a great time!!
— Aron D. Parent
Wants to come back next year
July 28, 2017: Victoria loved the camp and wants to come back next year. She would even like to do an extended day or possibly overnight
— Dina M. Parent
Loves every single minute of camp
August 8, 2017: She loves every single moment of every last fleeting day in Tahoe each year. Thanks for putting on such a great camp each year. And I'll keep hoping phones and electronics will eventually not be allowed at US Sports camps -- I will forever believe the kids (and their parents) can survive without them!
— Genevieve B. Parent
August 15, 2017: So many positives with this camp! The staff are fun, knowledgeable and friendly. Just the right balance between tennis and fun activities. The location is amazing.
— Tracy W. Parent

loved every minute of tennis, off-court activities, and laughs
August 11, 2016: I had the absolute best time at Nike Tahoe Tennis Camp this year. I can't thank Tony Greco and the staff enough for creating the most positive environment possible for improving my game as well as making friends. Every other camper I spoke with after camp loved every minute of tennis, off-court activities, and laughs.
— Lauren C. Camper
July 28, 2016: Thank you to the Greco family for everything!!!!
— Charley S. Camper

Davis Cup was so fun
7/27/2016 - I wish there were more courts, but other than that it was wonderful. Davis Cup was so fun!
— Sarah M. Camper
The Grecos do an amazing job year after year
7/12/2016 - JJ enjoyed learning about the different grips (Continental/semi-western/etc.) He also liked working on a spin serve. However, an education on when to use these grips and serves was lost on him. At 10, it's FUN to learn new things, however, further coaching on when/where to use theses grips (spin serve as 2nd serve, not every 1st serve) would have been beneficial. JJ enjoys this camp very much. The Grecos do an amazing job year after year. Thank you!
— John M. Parent

loved being a camper at this amazing camp
8/3/2015 - I loved being a camper at this amazing camp. I loved this camp so much that when I get older there is nothing I would rather do than be a counselor and give the same experience I had to the incoming campers.
— Ben V. Camper

Director Tony does a great job
7/31/2015 - The camp at Tahoe and Director Tony do a great job. My daughter looks forward to attending again next year. She attends a few camps and regularly goes to a tennis academy near our home, but has more fun and enjoys the experience the most here at Tahoe.

— Cassi G. Parent
we will be back next year
7/25/2015 - Great camp!! My only suggestion would be to provide more info to parents while campers away. This can be done by a simple group email or website with pictures from what is happening at camp. Maybe list activities that kids did during the day. My son LOVED this camp & we will be back next year!!
— Karen B. Parent
liked the competition and the variety of activities
7/23/2015 - Natalie had a blast. She especially liked the competition and the variety of activities. She wants to come for 2-3 weeks next year.
— Kathy V. Parent
should not allow screens during camp
7/23/2015 - The fact that kids are allowed to have screens during the day and evening was disruptive and distracting. Very disappointing. Screens should be banned during summer camps. Totally takes away from the experience. It just really does a disservice to the whole mood at camp to have screens allowed.
