    He learned and had fun!

    Wish the camp was longer

    July 27, 2017: My son had a really rough first day/night due to homesickness. My husband and I had to coax him out of his room to even get him to go down to the first orientation meeting. I think the counselors could have been more engaged in the separation process. That said he was fine the second day. And at the end he said he wished the camp was longer.

    8/5/2015 - My 13 and 10 loved the experiences. The coaches made it so much fun and they learned a lot. The only complaint they have is the dorm and the bathroom.

    had a really good time at the camp

    7/10/2016 - My son had a really good time at the camp. He did mention that the camp could use some 'ice breaker' games/activities during the first 1-2 nights so that all the campers could start to know each other better in the beginning; particularly him being on the 'shy' side. Also, for parents, drop off was a bit unclear...there could've been better signage of the location of check-in and the dorm rooms. There were signs, but very small and we weren't sure what entrance to go in - so signage/directions on the campus needs to be more clear. Overall a good experience!!

    had an amazing time at camp!

    August 12, 2016: I had an amazing time at the Nike Tennis Camp. I learned a lot about off-court factors, such as nutrition, that are also essential to being a great tennis player. I had a great experience on the court, in the dorms, and during off-court activities.

    wonderful experience

    August 9, 2017: This was my son's first experience with sleep away camp. He truly had a wonderful experience. Unfortunately, the friend he came to camp with, left, but it didn't hinder his time in the least. He made a lot of new friends and enjoyed all his time there.

    Better tennis player after camp

    July 10, 2021: Will thoroughly enjoyed his time. Even though there was a heat wave most of the week and he had never played so much tennis consecutively, he looked forward to tennis camp each day! He had so much fun and said that he believes he’s a better tennis player coming out of this week. On a side a note, Lawrenceville probably has one of the best camp lunches!
