Wilson Collegiate Tennis Camps at MTSU

MTSU

Overnight camp with Day options

Join the Wilson Collegiate Tennis Camp at Middle Tennessee State for an incredible week of tennis! Now in our 4th year in Murfreesboro, the Wilson Collegiate Tennis Camps at MTSU will be expanding by 2 additional weeks in July. Head Men’s Coach Jimmy Borendame, will host his traditional 2 camps in June (including 1 overnight option), while Head Women’s Coach Charlie Ramsey will be offering 2 news weeks in July.  Overnight - $645.  Full Day $360/week.  Half Day $240/week.

Each camper receives personal attention, advanced teaching techniques, intensive drill work and game / match play, all in a fun and competitive environment. We break the campers into small instructional groups of similar age and ability so each child is working in a group that is commensurate with their experience level. We tailor each program to the level of the players. Beginners would get a heavier dose of swing technique and fundamentals, while more advanced players would have more focus on strategy, point building and percentage tennis etc.

The Wilson Collegiate Tennis Camps are the premier camps for young players who strive to learn the game, improve their skills and/or participate in middle school, high school, USTA team tennis or tournaments.
HIGHLIGHTS OF THE CAMP INCLUDE

    5.5-6 hours of tennis each day
    Comprehensive instructional program with daily teaching progressions
    Small instructional groups to ensure individual attention
    Safety prioritized on and off court
    Camp demo program with all the latest Wilson rackets

Camp Ability

North Boulevard Church of Christ - 1112 N Rutherford Boulevard, Murfreesboro

Camp Ability of Special Kids is a Christian, summer day camp for children with special needs ages 6-25. Camp is designed to allow children with special needs to participate in an interactive, social, and just plain fun environment during the months of June and July each year. Our counselors focus on children's abilities rather than disabilities and find ways for all of our campers to participate in activities.


Camp Ability is held at North Boulevard Church of Christ in Murfreesboro, TN, and is broken into two sessions- one in June and one in July. Campers are able to attend one or both sessions depending on a family's need. To make activities fun for everyone, campers are divided into groups of about 8-12 campers based on age groups. At Camp Ability, our children's safety comes first, so we have one lead counselor and two or more support counselors in each group (giving us a ratio of one counselor to every three campers). A full time nurse is also on site, and volunteers participate in camper groups when needed with more involved activities.  $125/week plus $15 for early care and $30 for extended care.

BEP Summer Camp Presented By State Farm

During camp, students are placed into teams; each team then creates a “business” for the competition.  Each team must choose someone to fulfill the following roles:  CEO, CFO, Vice President of Marketing, Vice President of Sales, and Vice President of Human Resources.

Volunteers who serve in similar roles in our business community assist students in developing their business ideas, writing business plans, developing marketing strategies and financial plans, and creating PowerPoint presentations of their work for the final competition.  On the final day of the camp, teams present their business plans to a panel of volunteer judges, who will then decide whether to “fund” the businesses.  Although no actual money is awarded for the students’ hypothetical businesses, all members of the winning team receive laptops as their prizes.  Ages rising 7th and 8th grade students.  Application deadline is April 21.
