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 designed for tournament level and ranked players looking to improve their tournament results, learn winning strategies, and work on mental toughness.

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.

If you have a camper arriving by air and is deemed an “unaccompanied minor” by the airlines and must be met by a camp staff or shuttle company employee, there may be a fee that needs to be paid in advance of camp. You will still have to arrange transportation to/from camp. Please call 1-800-645-3226 two weeks prior to camp to provide camper’s flight and shuttle information.

Rain Plan

We have 10 indoor courts in addition to our 12 outdoor courts, so rain won't slow us down!

    Will be back next year!

    July 3, 2017: Playing at the baseline tennis center was awesome. My daughter learned the rules of tennis and improved her game, especially serving. The coaches were great and she had a lot of fun with the other kids. She liked the variety of activities throughout the day. Skyball has now become a regular activity after a family game of tennis at our local courts. This has been the best tennis instruction experience my child has had. We'll be back next year!

    highly recommend this camp

    July 6, 2016: This was a very fun camp and I had a lot of fun in all of the activities (on-court and off) and I feel like I improved overall. I would highly recommend this camp to anyone interested in tennis.

    really enjoyed it

    energy from the instructors was great

    6/30/2016 - My daughter really enjoyed camp. Even though they were long days and we had a lengthy drive, she never complained and was always ready to go. She came home tired each day but always happy. She liked how each instructor would focus on a certain skill and how she would get to work in the different types of hits. She enjoyed playing with her fellow teammates. She found that the energy from the instructors was great and very encouraging. The only complaint she had was that she moved to the regular ball too quickly. She didn't know how to control the ball and so was hesitant to take any big swings. She started in orange and moved along to regular ball and green dot ball.

    Should make it a Monday through Friday camp

    6/30/2016 - The one improvement I would recommend is making it a Monday through Friday camp. We are limited to all-day camps, because my wife and I both work during regular business hours. Weekends are family time. So starting on Sunday cuts into family time. Also, we then have to make special arrangements for child care on Friday. Making it a Monday through Friday camp, like all of the other camps we enroll them in, would be a great improvement.

    directors and staff were great

    6/27/2015 - The directors and staff were great on every level. Answer every question and spend the time to explain and accommodate my son. The only problem I had was the level of the kids in the camp, but I do understand that this is an open camp for all levels. My son enjoyed it but the lack of competition didn't help him to improve. Coaches were great on all levels.

    great experience

    6/27/2015 - Camp was a great experience. My only remark is that my daughter had to play Australian doubles the entire week because there was not an even number if kids. Perhaps the kids could have rotated partners so she could have had a chance to play with a partner and not alone every day.

    loved the camp, issues with food

    6/25/2015 - Overall my daughter loved the camp. Her biggest complaint was the food that was provided. Apparently the cook staff did not have enough of the main (hot dishes) available and they had to either "run" to get their food first and if they didn't get there in time, then they had to wait for the cook to make more....this resulted in eating very fast as there is only 30 minutes allocated to meal time. My daughter had to eat the salad bar frequently so she could get a meal in time. Please provide either a better cooking staff, more food or more time to eat in the future.
