From beginning players to advanced tournament players – there are 10 separate tennis groups of 4-6 campers grouped by level of experience and age
3 one-hour lessons (either at 9am, 11am and 1pm or at 10am, noon, and 2pm) and a match each day (match length determined by camper’s experience); campers can play on center court between lessons and can request additional matches each day
We, the Directors, and our Head Pro, go over the parent and camper questionnaires prior to the start of a session; we observe the campers playing on the courts on the opening day, and we then put them into groups; on Monday morning we observe the groups, consult with the counselors, and make moves to create the best possible groups.
We, the Directors, and our Head Pro, put the campers onto teams on the first day and then set up the matches based on each camper’s level of play and experience. Our goal is to get competitive matches where scores are likely to be 6-4 or 7-5 or 7-6. We believe close competition drives the most improvement for both players. Each day we evaluate all the matches to determine the best matches for the following day. During a session campers will play both singles and doubles, and they can request more than one match each day.
52, equally split between girls and boys
The counselors under the direction of our Head Pro. We, the Directors, hire counselors who are playing college tennis and are experienced with teaching and caring for children, and most importantly, are great role models. Prior to the arrival of the campers, we have a six-day training period to prepare our counselors that includes tennis teaching training with the Directors and our Head Pro. We’ve developed lesson plans and teaching manuals for our counselors; we run the daily morning meeting with on court demos, and we are very hands on working with our counselors every day.

We have found that being "unplugged" here at camp really encourages the social interaction that is such a fantastic part of camp. We provide a landline phone free of charge for US phones starting on Wednesday afternoon and available every afternoon from 1pm-6pm for the rest of the session for campers to make and receive calls. Parents are welcome to send letters through the mail, and campers will be sending postcards and letters home the same way. Parents can always call the Office to talk to Susan, Steve or Aimee about any questions or concerns.
