Our Camps will be a Rain or Shine Camps going forward at all of our locations. If it does rain heavily we will ALL be going indoors to our stadium. . We will still do our best to remain outdoors and try not to cancel and work through rain with off court games and safe play games on wet courts when possible.

LARGE WATER BOTTLES :We do have a water fountain but encourage everyone to bring a water bottle and they can refill their water bottles at the water fountain or our water jug. We have a big inflatable slide and plastic pools, slip n slide.

TENNIS RACKET - Bring your tennis racket each day, if you don't have a racket, we have rackets that you can borrow for the day or week.

SNACK MONEY: We do have snacks that we sell daily at all locations and We recommend kids bring some of their own snacks and also bring a few dollars to spend at camp on munchy snacks for $1 each and sports drinks & water bottles for $1 - $2. Also reminder to make sure to bring extra money on Tuesday and Thursday as the Ice Cream Truck will be arriving for the afternoon around 130-2PM Tues/Thurs.

Early & Late Pickup: - For parents who need to drop off earlier than 8:30 am, we allow for drop off as early as 8:00 AM, as we will have coaches available at that time, and Staff will either have them help with setup or go on court early and rally with another camper or coach. Also for parents who need to pick up later than 4pm daily, we like for you to pick up as late as 4:30 PM but please no later unless it is an emergency. If you need longer coverage you may be able to schedule that with us in advance on a specific day.

Large Water Cooler & Large Food Cooler:

Please provide as much necessary water, lunch , fruit, snacks, ice and drinks for your children to enjoy during the daytime. Kids burn lots of calories and need to drink lots of water and eat lots of calories to stay healthy and active during the camp day. We do not have an outdoor water source this summer and we will not be providing a shared camp large water cooler this summer due to Covid 19 safety measures.

EXTRA CLOTHES, SWIMSUITS & TOWELS: If it's hot we like to provide our campers with fun dynamic water play games & activities.. May be a good idea for extra clothes for changing out of sweaty clothes when ever it is possible. We have a portable outdoor changing room for kids to get in and out of swimsuits during the day time.

Water Play & Social Distancing: Water games will only be allowed while practicing social distancing and when when it is very hot and kids need a break from the heat and relief from sunshine to cool off. We will make sure to provide Covid safe environment to allow for water play during our camp daily schedule.

We're looking forward to seeing this week at TCTC TENNIS - and if not this week, we hope we will see you all very soon at one of our fun summer camp or lesson programs available for everyone in the family !!!

Reminder: Please sign up in advance if you wish to secure a place for your child now. We will be opening up our limited registrations to the public again now, and we will be sharing info on our website and tennis community with updates that our camps are re opening at selected locations.

WEATHER UPDATES/CANCELATIONS: It is really timing.  Generally it should be expected that our tennis camps and tennis lessons for kids and adults will go on as scheduled unless it is obvious that weather precludes this. Weather updates will be on our website (Home- Weather Hotwire). We try to post updates an hour in advance to give parents enough time to adjust their schedules, but may need to cancel as close as only 30 minutes prior if we do get bad weather just before camp will begin.
