    Strong experience all around

    July 20, 2021: My daughter especially enjoyed the rotations each day (serving, drilling, live ball, and point play). The tennis instructors were fabulous, and genuinely worked to create a positive and fun environment for the campers, while helping them improve their game. We were grateful for a strong experience all around, and will certainly be back next summer!

    July 19, 2019: Our daughter had an amazing time at camp and is begging to return next year! (We're happy to send her back.) She really enjoyed meeting new friends and the many social activities.

    Furthered his passion for tennis

    July 21, 2017: He loved the counselors and developed great relationships with other campers. This camp furthered his passion for tennis - as soon as he got home from camp he went straight to the courts and played another two hours - on a 90 degree day!

    • 5/5.
    Enjoyed the tips and instruction

    July 21, 2017: My son's highlights were the instructors/staff, the food, the morning workout, which he said helped alleviate the soreness, and the tips and instruction he got. This camp led me to believe that the high school kids would be in their own group, yet it doesn't seem that this was the case.

    Memorable experience

    August 15, 2017: This was my son's first experience at an overnight camp and they made it memorable. I was very impressed with the presence and accessibility of the coach and other staff members. The coaches introduced themselves, got to know our family and helped us with luggage. I was also extremely happy with the counselors. My son's roommate was not there on check in day and the counselor called me to ask what would be best for my son. I was so grateful for her concern and kindness. We can't wait until next year!! Thank you!!

    great experience

    July 27, 2016: Makensie was hesitant to attend because she was attending the camp alone and did not know anyone. By the end of the week, she was talking about going back next year with friends she had made while at Furman. She had a great time; really enjoyed the staff and counselors. It was a great experience for her to get out of her shell and to develop her game.

    We will be back

    7/22/2015 - I think my daughter's skills would have improved more if the camp had used the age appropriate balls for her to practice. I see how that is most likely not practical given the age ranges of kids, but I do think she would have increased her skill while applying the coaching instruction that she got at camp. I think she got real frustrated that her swing was affected by the type of ball. We will be back though, because she had such a great time and as she grows older the instruction will benefit her.

    wonderful camp and a great experience

    7/6/2015 - It was a great experience for my daughter. thank you so much for running such a wonderful camp and a great experience. My only concern was that she is 14 and her roommate was 17-- that's too much of an age gap.
