    In each Up4Tennis Camp program we provide a unique environment where campers are able to benefit from individual and small group learning and instruction. Each individual program is supervised and run by a coach on a daily basis to ensure consistency and proper supervision. We air to maintain an in-group ratio of 7:1 while on thecourts and 10:1 during our activity time.

    While campers are at the pool, the additional pool staff and lifeguards contribute to a ratio of approximately 5:1 while in the pool.

    How do you handle inclement weather?

    Safety is our number one priority at all times, and we are extremely mindful of the weather. If we see or hear a thunderstorm approaching, outdoor camp programs are immediately brought inside as we take extreme precaution to ensure that all outdoor camp programs are safe.

    What precautions do you take to handle the summer heat?

    We’re well aware that the summer heat can drain a camper throughout the day and week. Water is always available for each camp program and campers are encouraged to take water breaks approximately every 30 minutes. We take the heat, the humidity index, and the air quality index seriously. The Camp Director communicates with the teacher at each camp location to discuss the heat and air index. On extremely hot days (Code Red) and for those campers spending the majority of their time playing outdoors, participants will take mandatory and extended breaks throughout the day, an extended lunch break, plenty of water and misting fan breaks, and lower impact activities during the day.

    In addition, we ensure that sunscreen is re-applied on your camper multiple times throughout the day. We re-apply sunscreen before the pool and after the pool before going out to play again.
