Camp Instruction

All sessions are open to players of all abilities. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.

All Skills Program

The All Skills program is designed for tennis players of any skill level and background. Campers will learn fundamentals and improve upon their game. 

10 and Under Tennis

The “10 and Under Tennis” program features the USTA’s successful teaching format. This is an exciting way kids 10 and under are learning to play tennis as well as compete. The courts are smaller and balls are low-compression so they are easier to hit, allowing kids to get to the ball and develop optimal swing patterns. It all makes it easy and fun for them to hit, play and score from the start, while developing skills that will last a lifetime. Please note: This program is optional and younger campers may opt to play regular tennis on the full courts.

Science Class

The science class is for 11-18 year olds and will be conducted after lunch at 1:30pm-3:30 pm. The science portion of camp is taught by a PhD student. The topics covered can be anything from computer science, to astronomy. In the past the class has covered robotics, chemistry, and engineering. It is up to the instructors on what they want to teach and may vary week to week.

    Video analysis was great

    July 24, 2017: Video analysis was great idea. I registered 4 weeks of Tennis and it is a great tool to see her improvement through video analysis. Hope that this program can cater this kind of student who register several weeks to improve individual level!

    Teachers worked with the kids on their game

    July 28, 2017: The camp seems to have improved since 2015. Dividing the kids into two age groups was a good idea. Teachers seemed to be working with the kids on their game. Noam was in good spirits at the end othe day. He felt more confident. Having camp extend until Friday would make it better, and a better deal.

    Made new friends

    August 1, 2017: They enjoyed the games and instructions. Made new friends. They are definitely interested in staying with tennis and playing more now that they have attended your camp.

    Loved learning about the sport

    August 8, 2017: Victor loved learning about the sport - he is having fun throwing around lingo about his volleys... We're hoping this sets him down a path where he continues practicing and learning more about tennis, practicing/working hard, and competition.

    Came home happy

    August 16, 2017: The kids came home happy from their morning camp each day. They both liked playing "jail" and getting prizes on the last day.

    amazing staff

    August 12, 2016: Ryan, the assist. Director at Amherst College was amazing. So funny, didn't treat the kids like babies, and did such a good job entertaining the kids during a rain delay and made sure our daughter was comfortable in her dorm.

    coaches are great

    August 12, 2016: All the coaches are great, but it's really fun to have a different one every day of the week. Unfortunately, I was there for several weeks, often on the highest courts, and the same coach remained on those courts the entire week.

    really enjoyed camp

    August 11, 2016: I really enjoyed being in camp. I think the 10 and under group should play matches more often.

    son loved the camp

    July 27, 2016: My son loved the camp. I wish there was a better area for drop off/pick up. I wish there was a more of 'get to know you' between parents and coaches. Tennis camp we previously attended had lot more on these and I think it helps.

    son wants to do another week

    tennis instruction was outstanding

    7/27/2015 -The tennis instruction was outstanding. My daughter felt that she made great improvements in her play. The Camp provided a perfect level of supervision mixed with autonomy; which was important for a tween. I wish there had ben more tweens/teens but it may be that the older kids attend camps later in the summer (she attended the first two weeks).
