Camp Program Offerings
All sessions are open to players of all abilities unless otherwise noted. 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 is for kids ages 7-10, featuring 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.

Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
Enjoyed the coaches and competitive matches
June 08, 2018: Overall liked the experience. Duke was great. We really appreciated his flexibility. When my son felt wanted to switch to the morning class (more kids his age) Duke was more than accommodating and even followed up by phone the next day to make sure it worked out for him. They fitted him for a better racket and made the game much better. He really enjoyed the coaches and the competitive matches. Thanks for everything!

my kids loved the camp
7/25/2013 - My kids were apprehensive about this camp. They do not participate in summer camps. The loved it. They learned so much and are excited about playing tennis now. They also enjoyed meeting the other students who were local as well as from places like Switzerland and Hawaii. They played tennis with beginners all the way to competitive players. It was a fabulous experience!
