CAMPS - RACQUETS & GOLF
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.
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.
RACQUETS & GOLF SPORTS ACADEMY
New in 2022 for rising 5th through 10th graders, Racquets & Golf Sports Academy blends 2 full days and 3 half days of Racquets Academy with 3 half days of Golf Academy. The 3 half days of Golf will generally be Wednesday through Friday mornings. Racquets clinics emphasize tennis, squash and pickleball while Golf clinics will run the gamut from putting to driving and course play. No club or racquet will be left unturned!
For Summer 2022, Racquets & Golf Sports 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.
This is a 3 Day or 5 Day camp. The Golf portion will be held Wednesday to Friday mornings, so if your camper wants to focus on Golf, when registering, you should check the "Racquets and Golf" option, and choose the 5 day option or the 3 Day (Wednesday to Friday) option.
The Golf portion of camp is led by our PGA certified Pro, Lou Rivers, and his talented staff in our practice area and 18 hole Donald Ross golf course. We teach the game's traditions, etiquette, rules and technique. Campers will train on our putting green, two driving range areas, pitch and putt area and have some time on our course.
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!
On hot (and not so hot) days, campers love to cool off in our sun-soaked pool.
At Noon, campers will enjoy a balanced and healthy lunch prepared by Agawam’s chefs.
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.
5 Days: $385 for Members | $430 for Non-Members
3 Days: $270 for Members | $290 for Non-Members
