Frequently Asked Aggie Tennis Camp Questions
IS THERE SUPERVISION THE WHOLE TIME?
Yes, there is supervision 24/7. We have dorm room checks every night at “lights out” and the counselors are monitoring rooms and hallways throughout the night. In addition, the Cambridge Dorm also provides 24 hour security. There is supervision on the courts and during all free time.
WILL MY CHILD NEED EXTRA MONEY?
The price of camp includes everything. However, we do offer a camp store that sells Aggie Tennis Camp gear, snacks, drinks, racket restringing, etc. however, rackets and shoes are not available. For campers wishing to take advantage of this, they can pay by cash or set up a camp bank with a parent’s credit card. Campers who choose this option average about $50.00.
HOW ARE THE CAMPERS GROUPED?
Players are grouped by ability level, with secondary consideration given to age. We research and take into account all information to put players into tentative groups of 6 players each. On Sunday, we evaluate each player to make sure that they have been appropriately place.
WHAT IF MY CHILD GETS SICK OR INJURED AT CAMP?
If this happens, we treat them as if they are our own children. We have the parent’s insurance information on file. We also have a trainer that stays in the dorm to take care of the kids and is available day and night if needed. If an emergency arises, we take them to a 24-hr. clinic or the emergency room. Of course, parents will be notified if their child is sick or hurt. We work with you to determine the best possible option for care.
