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, go over the parent and camper questionnaires prior to the start of a session; we observe the campers playing on the courts following dinner 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, 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.

The counselors. 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 four-day training period to prepare our counselors. We’ve developed all the 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.
