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

In addition to the All Skills Program, we offer a “10 and Under Tennis” program, featuring the USTA’s teaching format. 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 member, there is a $50 fee each way that must be paid in advance of camp. Please contact the director if you need this service. 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.

A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring.

    camp was exceptional

    8/17/2016 - My twin daughters' experience at this camp was exceptional. It completely instilled in them a love of the sport that they did not previously possess. Many thanks to coach Derrick and his staff. We have participated in another camp, which was disappointing compared to this!

    didn't get an Orange and Black Camp Shirt

    7/27/2016 - They ran of out of the current year's camp shirts, so I didn't get an Orange and Black Camp Shirt from this year - and the reason this matters so much to me is that these colors matched ALL of my EQ, raq, bag and shoes - if you could send me a men's small it would be appreciated.
