USD Campus

The USD campus, built in Spanish Renaissance style, is situated on 180 acres of mesa overlooking San Diego’s beautiful Mission Bay. It has been rated as one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. The USD campus provides a safe, secure environment, and add an exciting cultural dimension to the total tennis camp experience. Week long tennis camp participants really absorb the college environment, since they are staying in the college dorms and dining at the Student Life Pavilion, where all college students eat regularly throughout the semester. We always incorporate a tour of the campus during one of our lunches, so that the kids have an idea of the size of the campus and beauty they are surrounded by!


Campers play on 8 courts at the Skip and Cindy Hogan Tennis Center, located on the West side of the USD campus.


2018: Overnight campers will reside in the college dorms on campus and dine at the Student Life Pavilion. Campers stay 2 per room and are assigned rooms based on requests and then by age and gender. There is no A/C in the dorms, but they stay cool.

Evening Activities

Evening activities may include a trip to the beach on Wednesday evening and a sports night. 

Weekend Stayovers

Weekend stayovers are available at this location between all sessions. Cost: $325. Includes meals, housing, and supervision.  

International Camper Options

International campers seeking a Sport and Language program can find a list of camp sessions and a detailed description of our new programs by clicking this link. International campers seeking a Sport Only program, a multi-week sport camp experience, can easily combine any of our individual Tennis Camp sessions together with a weekend stay over to create the right camp program to fit your needs!

Designated Airport

Transportation is not provided to/from the airport to camp. However, if your camper is flying in to San Diego International Airport the Director or a staff member will meet your son/daughter at the airport and arrange shuttle transportation to camp and then back to the airport on the return. The cost is $27 each way. Please call 858-382-6453 to make reservation and to provide your child's travel itinerary. Please make check payable to “Bill Scott” and bring to camp.

    exceeded the whole family's expectations

    August 4, 2016:  Our three daughters, of all different tennis abilities, attended Nike tennis camp at USD. It was their first ever tennis camp and it exceeded the whole family's expectations by a long shot. The girls loved the experience and we were very impressed by the organization, enthusiasm, and commitment of all the staff. It made for an amazing experience and our daughters are already asking if they can come back next year! A real delight for us as parents to see how much the love of tennis has grown for our children this week. Thanks to Bill, Sherri, Johnny and team!

    camp was the highlight of his summer!

    July 27, 2016:  This was my 13-year-old son's first sleep-away camp experience. None of his friends attended with him. The camp was the highlight of his summer! He met so many new friends who share his passion for tennis. They had fun on and off the court. He already is organizing with his new friends to attend next summer. Thank you to the director and camp staff for providing a positive, unforgettable experience!

    suggest a parent's social at the beginning of camp

    8/4/2015 - We suggest a parent's social at the beginning of camp (perhaps Sunday evening). This would give parents an opportunity to meet the counselor's, other parents and ask any questions.
