Junior Camp
The WTC summer camp encourages players ages 8 to 16 years old, of all abilities, to learn proper tennis technique, have fun and be able to play the game with proper scoring and strategy. The camp will be run by Jesse Chalfin, our head tennis professional. Camp hours will run from 12 noon to 3 PM this year and will not have a lunch break. Children should eat lunch prior to camp but are encouraged to bring a snack as we will take a few short breaks for snacks and drinks. Breaks will be taken in shifts and there will be 4 children maximum on each court with at least one pro to each court.

From June 15,  weekly Monday-Thursday through August 20. (Exceptions on holiday weeks) Fridays will be used for make up days in case of rain.

Children should wear t-shirts, shorts and smooth bottom sneakers (no running shoes). Hats, sunglasses and sunblock are suggested.

Sports drinks are available in the clubhouse for a small charge, but there is always a big jug of ice water available for the kids free of charge.

The cost for the camp is $60.00 a day, per child or $220.00 for the 4 days. Children are encouraged to enroll in at least one entire “week” but it is not mandatory. Students are separated into groups by age and/or level of ability. Camp is limited to 16 children.

If it is raining, parents should call the club at 679-5900 after 9 AM to see if camp is cancelled. Cancelled days will be made up on Friday of that week. If there is more than one cancellation in a week, you will be given a credit to be used any remaining day of camp. For those not able to make up the day, you will be reimbursed for that day.

If the kids are already at the camp and it rains, these days will not be made up or reimbursed. We will keep the kids busy until 3 pm studying tennis strategy, rules, playing games or watching televised tennis matches.
