Port Washington Tennis Academy’s Summer Camp and Year-End Camp

There is a difference in tennis day camps. The "unique" concept at the Port Washington Tennis Academy starts with a limited enrollment of only 50 juniors (a maximum of four per court).

Tournament players to beginners receive special concentrated training from an elite international staff of Academy-trained professionals. Specific additional training on an exclusive 1/4-mile indoor running track provides the unusual benefit of maximizing each student's speed and endurance performance capability.

At Port Washington Tennis Academy (PWTA), with 17 indoor courts and four new Pickleball courts, there is guaranteed 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. all-weather instruction. PWTA’s proven method includes intensive instruction, supervised practice and match play. Daily tennis-specific fitness drills provide for a super summer experience. Each camper will return home a much improved player. Luncheon (prepared in PWTA’s own kitchen) and additional weekend and weekday playing time is available for our students at no extra cost.

The Junior Summer Camp consists of two five-week sessions, held Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Mini-Camp and Junior Clinics are also held from 4:00 p.m.-6:00 p.m., Monday to Friday. The End-of-Year Junior Camp takes place during the December school vacation period.

Windridge ... a tradition of tennis, soccer and horseback riding and so much more for over 50 years. Located in the Green Mountains of Vermont, the Windridge Tennis and Sports Camp stands 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 more than 30 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.

Windridge offers two-week and four-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. In addition, we offer two 10-day Rookie Camps for 7-10-year-old first-time campers.

Windridge offers “majors” in tennis, soccer and horseback riding. Campers will develop skills in their chosen major each day while rounding out their schedule with electives like 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, such as Carnival Day and Teela-Games to create a well-rounded experience for each camper.
