    GOLF 'N TENNIS

    AGES 5-11 | 3 CLASSES

    We've got a super combo for the little players out there! Golf and tennis are two life sports that appeal to athletes who are comfortable in individual or team settings. Campers will alternate throughout the morning between tennis and golf with plenty of variety to keep things interesting. Snack and water breaks will be given. Kids are encouraged to bring their own equipment, but the Racket Club will provide equipment where necessary. Dimensions of the playing areas will be scaled down so campers can enjoy the camp at a smaller size and pace.

    Days of the Week: Tuesday-Thursday

    Time: 9am - Noon
