Our purpose is to encourage young people to love the game of tennis in a wholesome and fun camp setting.
Good Sportsmanship is the cornerstone of our program.
Tennis is a sport for a lifetime that develops focus, perseverance, and great physical health.
Campers become more skilled tennis players and learn a lot about tennis – good sportsmanship, focus and the mental game, strokes, movement, strategy, video analysis, conditioning and match play.
Campers get a balance of hitting lots of balls in game-based (live ball) drills in their lessons and match play during team tennis.
Campers are encouraged to enjoy competition by striving to be their best.
10 tennis groups of 4-6 campers each allow all levels of players to attend CVTC, from beginning players to ranked tournament players.
Our staff is composed of college aged counselors, some of whom have been campers at CVTC. Our tennis counselors are playing college tennis and bring a wealth of tennis experience to the camp and selected as great role models.
Counselors participate in a 4-day pre-camp training.
Campers leave camp motivated to play more tennis.
