Summer is coming and so is summer camp season. Lots of kids go to summer camp programs at tennis clubs, country clubs as well as town and park programs. Some kids go to overnight tennis camps for a week or two such as the Nike Tennis Camp at nearby Williams College. Still others go to overnight camps for the summer or for one month. Between the Adirondacks, the Catskills, the Berkshires and the Helderbergs we have a lot of overnight camps within a few hours drive. Many of them have good tennis programs and lots of fun activities for their campers – from Baseball and Basketball to Rock Climbing; from Swimming and Boating to Dance and Arts & Crafts – the kids have loads of fun at these camps.
I recently toured one such camp – Camp Eagle Hill in Elizaville, New York. From my door it took me one hour and ten minutes to get to Eagle Hill so it is fairly close by. Eagle Hill is a family run, coed, 200 acre facility which features a lake, 2 swimming pools along with 8 tennis courts. There are all types of sporting activities and activities for the mind and soul. I will be working with Eagle Hill providing referrals from the Capital District area so if you want more information, feel free to contact me.
Through the years I have worked with a lot of kids who have attended various overnight camps. Their experiences have always been positive. I have also had hundreds of camp kids at my tournaments and have done intercamps with several overnight camps. The kids all love it at camp and have a great time. Not all of the overnight camps have the same commitment to tennis but there are a lot of camps with good tennis programs in our region. If you are looking for a great experience for your child this summer, look into one of the great overnight camps in our region.
