Camp Program Offerings

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.

Tournament Training Program:

The Tournament Training Program is geared towards tournament level and ranked players looking to improve their tournament results, learn winning strategies, and work on mental toughness. Open to any and all players.

High School Program:

The High School Program is provided for any and all players 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 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.

    Prepared me for next season

    July 16, 2018: All staff this year did an amazing job at making my experience worth while, and I left with better cardio and loaded with more skill, preparing me for the next season of my tennis team.

    He now loves tennis and wants to play every day!

    July 23, 2018: My 14 year old son had an absolute blast at camp. He was not really in to tennis and really was not thrilled about a tennis camp. He now loves tennis and wants to play everyday! Fantastic job!

    Combination of real skills and fun

    July 23, 2018: Camp was outstanding. Not only did my 7 1/2 year old, who LOVES to play tennis, have a blast, his skills and confidence were greatly improved. I greatly appreciated the coaches attention to detail, their attention to maintaining a good positive attitude and pushing the kids to do better through various games, drills, competitions, etc. It is hard to keep a 7 1/2 year old engaged from 9-5, however, my son not only had fun, he loved it, grew in his skills and asked to go back week two as he wanted MORE! As a parent, I also appreciated the constructive positive feedback received at end of each session. I was looking for a real tennis camp not a fluff program, this program combined real skills and fun to engage my child and teach him, very pleased!

    Amazing overall experience

    July 27, 2017: This was our daughter's first camp experience, so as a parent, I was a little concerned she might get homesick. The first night, my wife called to check on her. To our surprise, she said, "Mom, please don't call me, I will call you." Well that assured us, she was feeling right at home. The camp directors and coaches, not only provided a great tennis program, but make the camp experience fun. At the end of the camp session, I knew my daughter grew as a tennis player and matured as a person; gaining more confidence and independence. The physical conditioning, and long hours of tennis were intense, but she couldn't wait to get back for more. After, her second week, when she won, Most Improved, she was beaming. Thanks Ross, Christine, Stephen, Maggie, and everyone else for all you did.
