    Enjoyed the camp

    Always a great experience

    July 18, 2017: Julianna and her brother and sister have all attended Nike Tennis Camps for the past 13 years at various camps from Montana, Colorado Springs and Denver. They have always had great experiences at all of them. They come back from camp better tennis players, better athletes, and with a love of the game.

    Lacking feedback from coaches

    July 1, 2017: The camp would have been better if the kids were provided feedback on how to improve their techniques and provided something in writing that they can reflect on moving forward. As a parent getting some type of feedback from the head coach would have made a big difference due to his expertise.

    will definitely sign up for more weeks

    August 17, 2016: Chloe and Sophia loved the camp. They made lots of friends and learned a lot of new tennis skills. All of the instructors were wonderful! They couldn't stop talking about how nice they were. We will definitely sign up for more weeks next Summer at Denver University.

    Some participants were very misbehaved

    August 17, 2016: Some participants were very misbehaved and not nice to several other campers (cheating, bad language, not listening to the staff). I felt they should have been warned once and parents contacted; and if behavior happened again then they should not be allowed to return the next day and the parents should have to pick them up immediately. That is the only complaint I have that I observed. (I am the mom of my son who went to camp.)

    exceptional camp

    August 11, 2016: Christian Thompson ran an exceptional camp! The staff didn't just hit balls with us, they instructed us at a high level.

    hoping for feedback

    August 11, 2016: We attended a basketball camp at the beginning of the summer and received a notecard with feedback and a skills assessment, so I am wondering if we just somehow missed getting this or if Nike camps just do not do that. And I would want the feedback to be honest.

    fitness training was fun

    made significant improvements

    could be more instructive

    7/28/2015 - I felt that the campers should learn to assess what mistakes they make in their strokes. I came to watch and felt it could be more instructive. Not enough courts in afternoon for everyone to play. I wish there was less game stuff and more tennis instruction in the afternoon. Environment is good and facilities are good too. They liked the camp but the things above could be improved.

    — Aaron A. Parent

    coaches were friendly and fun

    7/6/2016 - I would definitely come back next year if they offered age appropriate balls (IE: orange and green dot). The match play portion would be improved if we could play a whole match instead of just one set. I enjoyed hitting a lot of balls each day! I would have preferred more individual feedback from the coaches instead of group only instruction. Overall, the coaches were friendly and fun!

    great opportunity to meet new people

    6/30/2015 - It was a great opportunity to meet new people and learn new things. I had a lot of fun with my fellow students and the instructors were fun and informative. It was very safe and not too overbearing.

    amazed at the improvement

    6/27/2015 - I had my 3 daughters participate in the camp. I play with them on week-ends and I am amazed at the improvement in all 3.

    had a great time at camp

    6/26/2015 - My son really enjoyed instructor Aiden Reid. He had a great time at camp which is surprising as he is a 15 year old boy and not really in love with tennis. Thank you!!
