Camp Program Offerings

Each week we offer an All Skills program, a high school program, and a 10&Under Tennis program. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.

All Skills Program

All sessions are open to players of all abilities unless otherwise noted. The All Skills program is designed for tennis players of any skill level and background. Campers will learn fundamentals and improve upon their game.

High School Program

The high school program is provided for players ages 13-18 currently on their high school team and wanting to move up the ladder or those planning on making the high school team.

10 and Under Program

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: We will use short courts and full courts during the camp. This program is optional and younger campers may opt to play regular tennis on the full courts.
