CAMPS at AGAWAM - RACQUETS
For more than 40 years, Agawam has offered summer Camps for its youngest members and their friends rising into first through tenth grades. Regardless of age, each Agawam camp week is filled with summer fun, sun, and exertion on our 130 acre property. With a thoughtful approach to structuring campers’ days, activities, professional instruction, courses and courts are tailored to each child’s age and ability. All campers benefit from cooling off in our heated pool and satisfying their appetite with a healthy meal at our Lunch Box cafe.
Three Day and Week long summer camps at Agawam include Camp Agawam (described below) for children Grades 1st to 6th and, for children grades 5th to 10th, Racquets Academy, Racquets & Golf Sports Academy and Junior Golf Development Camp. Camps are offered for both members and non-members.
In partnership with Lincoln School, we are pleased to offer Racquets Academy emphasizes tennis, squash and pickleball. No racquet will be left unturned! This camp is geared towards boys and girls rising into 5th to 10th grade but we do accept other age ranges by request (if you have a child who is able to play with 5th to 10th graders, contact us to consider if they are a match for the camp)
For Summer 2022, Racquets Academy is offered by the weeks of June 13, June 20, June 27, July 18, July 25, August 1, August 8, August 15 and August 22. Racquets Academy runs daily from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Our high-energy racquets camp, taught by USPTA certified instructors and counselors, will help get campers' tennis play to the next level. Throughout the day, campers will be alternating sport-specific racquet drills, agility and footwork drills and match play aimed at improved court-movement and general motor skills.
Unique to Agawam is the ability to hone tennis skills on three different surfaces: hard courts (indoors), clay courts (Har-Tru) and our 10 grass courts!
At Noon, campers will enjoy a balanced and healthy lunch prepared by Agawam’s chefs and enjoy a relaxing and refreshing pool break.
In the afternoon, all campers will participate in a team sport in the racquet sport of the day. Match play is aimed at creating camaraderie among peers and to reinforcing inclusiveness and participation for all. All matches will be supervised by an instructor to provide feedback on game play.
On Friday, all of the campers will participate in a Racketlon, a fun, day-long competition where everyone will get a chance to showcase their improved racquets skills while challenging their peers to claim the Racketlon title!
