A Safe and Caring Atmosphere
We take great pride in the commitment and safe care given each child who attends our camp. Adult supervision is provided on and off the courts. Our camp environment cultivates and nurtures each camper’s confidence. CVTC is electronics free (unplugged) to encourage connections between campers/staff and foster the development of lifelong friendships. The warm and loving atmosphere creates memories of tennis, fun and friends that last a lifetime.
