    extremely enjoyed the camp

    8/22/2016 - My son enjoyed the camp extremely, despite he did no speak much English. The directors and staff made him feel at home during his two weeks. He enjoyed the camp so much that he is asking whether there is a session during the winter!

    • 5/5.
    Camp was grea

    7/28/2016 - Camp was great and kids loved it. They'll definitely be back next year. They loved the attention from Lele and others. Karaoke night was a bust. They liked the dance much better from prior years. Some of the staff were not very kid friendly.

    — Kelley C. Parent

    • 5/5.
    needs emphasis on sunscreen

    7/27/2016 - Would have loved more emphasis on sunscreen. My son came home with a sunburn.

    — Janet S. Parent

    • 5/5.
    definitely be sending them back

    7/27/2016 - My boys had a great time and both came back not only significantly improved, but with more enthusiasm for the game, which was part of the objective. Therefore, I will definitely be sending them back, and recommend this to others. However, as a parent, I would have liked more input on my child/ren's development and where they could work, and what they did well. I didn't feel the evaluation was sufficient and there was little to no time to speak to the coaches.

    — Janhavi B. Parent

    • 5/5.
    need more time for singles play

    7/27/2016 - It would be helpful to arrange camp so that there is more time for singles play with similar or higher level players.

    — Mika H. Camper

    • 5/5.
    quality instruction and plenty of court time

    7/27/2016 - This is our daughter's first camp experience, and she has had a great time! Along with quality instruction and plenty of court time, she had also enjoyed making new friends with fellow campers. She also likes the food!

    — Betsy P. Parent

    No one runs a Nike Sports Camp better than Lele

    8/17/2015 - No one runs a Nike Sports Camp better than Lele's Nike Tennis at Stanford - and my boys have attended many Nike Sports Camps. Lele's are the best at what they do and I think that she attracts the best because young adults like working for her. She is always positive and enthusiastic. She is keenly interested in doing everything possible to help the campers be even more passionate about tennis. At the end of the week, all of the players have improved and have had a wonderful time.
