Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is the full capacity of the camp? Half capacity?

In years past our maximum registration has been around 150 campers weekly. Half capacity would be around 75 campers.

How many campers will be in each home group?

We estimate home groups to be 4-6 students and of similar age and level of tennis play.

What sports will be offered this year at camp?

This year we will focus primarily on tennis because it will naturally socially distance the campers. We will continue to monitor the state and local guidelines and will include more sports opportunities for the campers when it is possible. 

What activities should be expected at camp?

Currently our approved list of activities, but not limited to are: tennis (skill development, drills, singles & doubles competition), soccer (drills, non contact games), fitness (age appropriate), classroom time, arts and crafts, education enrichment, mental skills, match analysis, etc.

These are subject to change depending on State and local guidelines.

Will the kids spend the whole day outdoors?

We will give campers breaks during days of excessive of heat. At our camp we have cooling stations/mist machines, shaded areas, and the indoor building that is fully air conditioned. This year we will covering our first tennis court with an event tent, which will provide shade with large fans to help keep cool. 

What happens when it rains or excessive heat days?

Our rainy day schedule depends on the type of camp. We normally offer indoor camp games like board games, trivia, group video games (Just Dance), Zumba, & more. For our more competitive players we offer fitness, mental skills training, video analysis of matches and tactics. 

In our experience it rarely rains all day. Once there is a break in the weather we will dry the tennis courts. 

On hot days we monitor the temperature and take the necessary breaks while providing campers with pre packaged frozen snacks like ice pops and ice cream bars. 

Since there is no pool this year, will there be any water play days planned?

We are observing state and local guidelines. In the past our camp has offered water games, slip and slide (50-75 ft), and more. We are prepared to have these things as soon as we have better guidance from state and local government and medical experts.
