Where can you find a junior summer multi-sport camp highlighting the excitement of competition, high-structured instruction and plenty of all-around play time? At Carefree Racquet Club, complete with seven air-conditioned indoor tennis courts, two racquetball courts that convert to walleyball, a half-court basketball court, a cozy lounge and snack area … that’s where! At Carefree’s Summer Camp, the staff encourages the social and healthy aspect of loving sports just for the fun of it.

Carefree stresses the positive approach of competition, which gives juniors perspective both on and off the playing surface. In the long run, this brings out the confidence to succeed in whatever their students venture into later in life. The key is to develop behavioral characteristics of success for all of students: Vision, action, responsibility and independence. Carefree’s staff is comprised of knowledgeable and caring counselors, some of who were, or currently are, college players who also trained at Carefree.

The program is directed by Louis Vallejo, and with 27 years of tennis experience, Louis has coached juniors of all levels of play. Along with his head pros, the tutelage of Carefree’s students is unsurpassed.

Carefree Racquet Club is proud to celebrate its 24th year of its Junior Summer Camp. The success of the summer program comes from the outstanding facility, fun to win attitude and superior pro staff. Camp hours are from noon to 5:00 p.m. Students come in fresh and relaxed with energy, and ready for action. Each participant follows their schedule for the day of tennis, basketball and walleyball.

Carefree’s Junior Summer Multi-Sport Camp is the most flexible on Long Island. You can attend full-time (eight weeks, five days a week) or a fewer number of weeks. You can also attend just two or three days a week if you’d like. You can even come just once a week, but Carefree bets that if you come once, you’ll want to come twice! So come on down and see for yourself … the staff at Carefree Racquet Club will be waiting!

"Childhood Unlimited" … that's the mantra at Indian Head Camp.
Indian Head Camp is a seven-week traditional sleepaway camp experience where seemingly endless days bring limitless opportunities to celebrate the wonder of being a kid.

Tennis happens to be a huge part of Indian Head’s days, especially since one of the Camp’s Owner/Directors Lauren Rutkowski began her camp experience as a tennis instructor. Many years later, Lauren is still very much leading the way for Indian Head's A+-ranked tennis program, which consists of a USTA-accredited pro and an international team of instructors and players.

Indian Head has 16 state-of-the-art tennis courts, four indoor—all with lighting for nighttime play. In addition to group and private one-on-one lessons, Indian Head’s facility is available for tennis retreats, group rentals, specialty camps, weddings, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, and birthday parties.

At Indian Head, your camper will trade in electronics, the Internet, and their cellphone (none are allowed at camp), for a seven-week experience in athletics, arts, aquatics and outdoor adventure. Their days will be packed, so they can play in all their favorite activities, and challenge themselves in areas they never knew they would love.

So while your camper will hone in on their tennis talent and find their true potential, they'll also come home exhausted from one of the best summer experiences of their lives. Get a copy of the award-winning documentary "Camp" about a single summer at Indian Head at IndianHead.com—and get answers to all your questions.

Indian Head Camp cannot wait to welcome you and your family to their home!

The Early Hit Training Center incorporates all aspects of the game into a complete program. Each session begins with a nutritionally-complete and balanced shake from Court 7, an on-premise restaurant and smoothie bar.

After a thorough warm-up, the student will work through the core components of tennis, including stroke production, drilling and physical fitness training before breaking for a healthy lunch.

Then, the player moves on to playing dynamics and strategy, and these lessons are reinforced with focused match play. A thorough cool-down and stretching session completes a world-class day of tennis for your child.

With a team of renowned tennis teaching professionals, experienced physical conditioning trainers, movement experts and on-site chef, The Early Hit Training Center offers a unique and total tennis experience.

Tiger Tennis & Swim Day Camp, located on the campus of LIU Post University in beautiful Brookville, N.Y., will be running an eight-week program starting on June 27, 2016.

LIU Women’s Tennis Head Coach Walter Giacometti is excited for another great summer camp after a successful year one. The camp is for children ages six- to 17-years-old. The camp has children from the beginner level, who have never played tennis before, all the way to tournament players who compete not only in tournaments, but also on their high school teams.

Each day begins at 9:30 a.m. with a warm up of group activities and coordination exercises with both static and dynamic stretching. After the warm up, kids are divided up by level and are placed on courts for their lesson of the day. Tennis instruction is completed at 11:30 a.m. Children then have one-hour of indoor swim time. The indoor pool is located right next to the tennis courts at the Pratt Recreation Center. Lunch is from 12:30 p.m.-1:30 p.m. at the Hillwood Commons Center. Students can pick from most any items in the cafeteria, as lunch is included. After lunch is completed, students head back to the courts for some supervised free play on the tennis courts or adjacent fields. At 2:00 p.m., students begin match play. If beginner students are not capable to play matches, there will be more instruction and supervised games that will take place. Each week, Tiger Tennis has team competitions that the kids look forward to every time. Pick up from camp is at 4:00 p.m. and transportation is offered if needed.

Tiger Tennis is looking forward to another summer of fun and to seeing all of the children at LIU Post.

Windridge ... a tradition of tennis, soccer and horseback riding and so much more for almost 50 years. Located in the Green Mountains of Vermont, the Windridge Tennis and Sports Camps stand unique in that they feature specialized sports programs within the framework of a traditional New England camp setting.

Since 1968, children have come to Windridge from most of the 50 states and many foreign countries to share in the Windridge experience. Campers make a commitment to hard work, good sportsmanship, and wholesome fun and laughter.

Within a warm and friendly environment, campers make lifelong friends while learning skills for life.

Windridge offers two- and three-week coed sessions from June through August, serving ages seven through 15. Windridge’s 4:1 camper-to-counselor ratio is an important factor in its warm and nurturing environment.

Windridge offers “majors” in tennis, soccer and horseback riding, and also offers many elective programs, such as golf, mountain biking, archery, a ropes course, basketball, volleyball, arts and crafts, and more. Windridge adds to this, a wide variety of exceptional evening activities and special events to create a well-rounded experience for each camper.
