Location of Camps

Our camps are located at 800 West College Avenue, St. Peter, MN 56082 on the campus of Gustavus Adolphus College. Campers will check in/out and stay in Norelius Hall which is on the north side of the campus. All tennis related activities will take place at the Swanson Tennis Center and Brown Outdoor Tennis Courts on the northwestern side of campus. All meals during the time of camp will take place at the Evelynn Young Dining Room found in the C. Charles Jackson Campus Center.


Junior Camps

Players of all ability levels are welcome. You receive an individual tennis analysis report, a TLC shirt, a camp photograph, performance awards, and a certificate of attendance. Non-tennis highlights include swimming, a variety show, a dance, and other recreational activities. You return to our supervised dormitory by 9:00 p.m. each evening.

Tournament Players Camp

Advanced players (4.0 to 5.5) who participate in summer USTA tournaments and/or rank at the top of their school team attend. Participants should have a Universal Tennis Rating (UTR) from playing in tournaments, but not required. You are expected to have a reliable spin serve, hit topspin and slice on your groundstrokes, volley and hit overheads comfortably, and sustain long rallies from the baseline. Most drills are player sustained, and emphasis will be placed on match play. Click here for a copy of the Tournament Player Camp schedule.

Adults participate in up and down the river point play rotations in addition to stroke mechanic-based lessons. Families are usually placed together in off court sessions. Children, parents, and/or grandparents often come together and bring friends with them. Family members stay next to each other in semiprivate dormitory rooms. Non-tennis players may accompany their families and attend off court sessions together. Click here for a copy of the Family Camp schedule.
