What People Are Saying

“Thank you for running an excellent camp! I feel so good sending my son to CVTC each year knowing you run a tight ship but still make the camp super fun and tennis centric.”

“Thank you so much for what you all do at CVTC. It really is amazing the improvement in our child’s tennis game and the social aspect and interaction she had at camp makes her a stronger more confident girl.”

“My daughter RAVED about all her counselors. She was so impressed by the fact they were from all over the world and had fun stories about her time with each of them. They were positive, energizing and encouraging…and FUN.”

“Our daughter raved about her newfound confidence with her game! She said the food was amazing! She loved the counselors! We could not be happier with the experience!”

“We are all for the wonderful experience you provided. He couldn’t get his stories out quickly enough…everything ranging from top model, center court, the dance, his coach, his routine, the great food, the piano. His tennis is so improved, he’s playing so well and we can’t thank you enough.”

“Thank you so much, Susan, Steve, and Aimee—and the rest of CVTC staff and counselors—for such a fun session for our son. He arrived back home Saturday with stories of his fabulous time of meeting new friends and playing tennis and being away from the news of the world. He particularly enjoyed not knowing about all the news! I applaud your no screens policy. So good for these kids!”
