DAILY ACTIVITIES

The full day camp's activities are divided into three main categories: on-court tennis instruction, afternoon swimming, and outdoor camp games.  There are three hours of on-court activities every morning and swimming at the bearbrook pool in the afternoon for three of the five days of the week.  On tuesday, water games will be organized such as water balloon fights.  An obstacle course and a treasure hunt will also be scheduled on the tuesday afternoon.  Outdoor activities will include any games from dodgeball, capture the flag to a friendly soccer game.  Theme days such as colour days will be organized throughout the week.  All of these different activities are included to appeal to the many different interests of our participants.  Therefore, arts & crafts stations as well as more relaxed activites will also be organized.  We then conclude the week with a singles and doubles tennis tournament on the Friday.  The Blackburn Tennis Club's first goal is to make these camps as FUN as possible for its campers.

Tennis Skills taught throughout the week are as follows:

Monday - Groundstrokes (forehand & backhand) + tennis scoring & etiquette

Tuesday - Serve 

Wednesday - Volleys 

Thursday - Signature Shots (Smash, Lob, Drop Shot . . .)

Friday - Singles Tournament in the morning & Doubles Tournament in the afternoon.

* Each day brings a review of the previous day's skills as well as 1 hour of match play.

If your child does not have a racket, we can provide him/her with one for the week!
