HIGHER LEARNING FOR YOUR GAME
CAMP & CAMPERS:
Q.1 What type of campers attend camp ?
Our tennis camps are designed to teach the technical basics and love of the game to the beginning player, to introduce strategical decision making, and more advanced technique to the intermediate player, while building on their current stroke production, and to put the advanced player into pressured, strategical and competitive situations.
Q.2 What is the ratio of staff to campers ?
Groups will be divided into small groups of approximately 4-5 campers to one coach. Primarily the ratio of camper to staff is 4.5:1, however, in many instructional situations the ratio is smaller and our Wooster camp features nightly private lessons.
Q.3 How are the campers divided?
Campers range in age from 8-18 years old. Campers are divided by age, experience and ability level throughout the camp week. We make sure each camper is challenged yet comfortable in their surroundings, enabling skill level improvement.
LIFE AT CAMP:
Q.1 What type of supervision is provided and will my child be safe?
All activities both on and off the courts are supervised by mature and responsible staff members. Safety is a top priority throughout the week. With more than 20 years experience running sports camps, we have developed detailed rules and regulations in order to provide a safe atmosphere at the camp. No one is allowed to leave campus or leave their group during camp. Supervision in the residence halls at night ensures the campers are getting adequate rest. In addition, campus security is present at all times.
Q.2 What do the campers do with their spare time ?
What little spare time the campers do have is filled. In addition to the daytime activities such as swimming, bowling, etc…, the campers have evening activities each night. This includes Ice Cream socials, Pizza nights, Movie nights, Game room night, Talent show, and Casino night.
Q.3 What are the living arrangements ?
Players stay in the schools residence halls. The students are typically housed 2 to a room (although in certain circumstances triples are available). Special arrangements can be made to have multiple rooms next to each other if requested. We will make every effort to meet your requests.
Q.4 Is there 24 hour supervision ?
Our Wilson Collegiate Tennis Camp Staff is on duty 24 hours a day, on the courts, in the dormitories, in the cafeteria, at the pool… wherever our campers are present during the overnight camps. In addition, our campuses have a 24-hour camp security and a full-time, year round campus police security.
Q.5 What is the dining hall like and is the food good ?
YES! Our Overnight camps have ‘All You Can Eat’ buffets at every meal to make sure each camper gets plenty to eat. There are multiple options at each meal and can accommodate all types of food preferences, including vegetarians, vegans, and all types of food allergies. Each food option is marked with health content and ingredients. In addition, the dining staff will help any child with food allergies or preferences.
Q.6 Can I bring food and drinks to camp?
YES! Although the dorms do not have refrigerators in the rooms, please feel free to bring snacks, drinks, and coolers for your room. Although ample food is available at camp, many kids like to have snacks in their rooms. In addition, the student union on campus has a snack bar/grocery where additional snacks can be purchased.
Q.7 Are the rooms air conditioned?
Typically our rooms are not air conditioned, therefore we recommend that each camper brings 1 or more desk and/or floor fans, as the rooms can get hot. Please check the particular camp page to verify dorm and whether there is air conditioning (if not stated – no air conditioning is available).
Q.1 What are the Check-in and Check-out times ?
Check-in and Check-out times are listed on the camp location page under the “More Info” tab.
Q.2 When is payment due ?
A $200 non-refundable deposit is due upon registration of the student. The balance can be paid at this time, at a later date online (if you signed up online) or mailed in prior to the start of camp, however, no camper will be allowed to participate without paying the balance. In addition, if paying during the sign in (the Sunday of camp) only check and cash will be accepted . NO CREDIT CARDS WILL BE ACCEPTED at this point.
Q.3 What Discounts are available?
We offer a number of discounts. You can qualify for ONE DISCOUNT only. Here’s a list of what we offer for our tennis camps in 2012.

Q.4 If I am flying to camp, where should I fly in and out of ?
Each year we have several campers fly in to camp. Information on which airport is closest to your particular camp is listed on the “Camp Info” tab of each camp location page. Although we do not have a regularly scheduled shuttle to and from camp, we can make arrangements to pick up and drop off a camper for an additional fee. To make arrangements to be picked up at one of the two airports please call the office at (330) 333-CAMP or EMAIL FOR PICKUP AT LEAST - 1 Month Prior to the start of camp.
Q.5 How do I reach my child during camp?
Should you want to contact your child during camp, we recommend that you send your child with a cell phone. For emergencies, you can contact the camp at (614) 886-3558 or via EMAIL.
Q.6 What happens if we need to cancel?
If you have to cancel, for any reason, you will be refunded all of the monies paid, with the exception of the $200 non-refundable deposit. All camp refunds will be made by check and sent out within 7 days of the close of camp. No refunds will be paid for cancellations after 10 days prior to the start of camp. Campers who leave camp during their session, will not be eligible for any refunds
Premier Sports Camps do not provide and camp-cancellation insurance, however, there are several companies out there where this can be purchased. One of the leading providers is Assurance Solutions: http://www.protectmytrip.net/.
