Armonk Tennis Club offers three premier summer camps: Camp Armonk Sports, which is a multi-sport program that emphasizes the development of both physical and social skills; Camp Armonk Mad Science, which combines educational and athletic activities into a unique experience; and Armonk International Tennis Academy, which features advanced and junior paths so that every level of player can raise their game.

Camp Armonk is a sports and enrichment experience for children entering grades K-5. Its goal is to help campers discover and foster their strengths and interests, with expert instruction that gives them the ability, encouragement, and passion to reach their potential. While kids in the sports camp spend the full day on the playing fields and tennis courts and in the pool, Mad Science campers take part in interactive science lessons and experiments in the morning before joining the sports fun in the afternoon (although we do offer a half-day option for campers who only want the Mad Science activities).

Armonk International Tennis Academy, meanwhile, lets tennis players ages 6-17 work on their game in a focused and fun environment. Through separate advanced and junior camps, we tailor the training to any class of player, from casual to elite, allowing campers to identify and achieve their own individual goals.

Open houses will be held on Saturday, February 29th and Saturday, March 28th. However, anyone interested can contact us at any time for further information or to schedule a personal tour.
