Our Junior Summer Tennis Camp Programs runs during the summer months: June, July and August. We offer Full Day Camp and Half Day Camp sessions. The Half Day Camp sessions run Monday – Friday from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM and 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM.  Our Full Day Camp sessions run Monday – Friday from 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM. The Junior Summer Camp Program offers training sessions for the beginner to the advanced/tournament level player, ages 5 to 18 years old.  All camps are taught by USPTA-certified coaches and Valter personally oversees the Junior Summer Camp Program. Valter is also available for one-on-one private lessons with players of all levels. Enrollment is limited to insure the highest standard of individual attention.  Some weeks are completely filled prior to the start of camp. Please enroll well in advance to secure a spot. Private lessons with Valter should also be booked early.

The most important highlight of Mike Van Zutphen Spring Break Tennis Camp is that the kids HAVE LOTS OF FUN while DISCOVERING AND ENJOYING THE GAME OF TENNIS. THE SPORT OF A LIFE TIME! Beginners will be taught the fundamentals of tennis. The intermediate players will work on developing solid ground strokes, serves and volleys. The advanced juniors will focus on fine-tuning their overall game by simulating pressure situations during game-like settings. Good sportsmanship and a positive attitude are strongly encouraged. Participants will have daily refreshments break consisting of Gatorade, water and NRG food bars and prizes will be awarded on Friday including one Wilson Jr. tennis racket to a lucky camper.

Values gained by children through the VALTER PAIVA CAMP PROGRAMS ARE: 

  • Enhancement of social and behavioral skills 
  • The learning of positive attitude and good sportsmanship
  • The realization of continual practice to bring greater success
  • Learning that “perfect practice” makes perfect
  • Constant participation develops agility, coordination and fitness
  • Understanding and proper use of rest time and food intake
  • Strong participation improves their tennis skills
