The first are our overnight campers.Overnight campers are children that travel to the camp in Philadelphia from over 30 states and 15 countries. These children generally stay for an average of two weeks at a time.Some children stay for longer periods and a few just come for a week.The senior age group is housed at HaverfordCollege and the junior

As Tennis professionals your professional
duty is to look after the tennis campers from to daily. Early morning and evening duties
are taken over by the residential counselors.
The other group is day campers. These children live in the area, and are dropped off in the morning and picked up again at the end of the
day.Each camp will have a tennis day camp director who will be responsible to
check the children in and out.
