Camp IHC Tennis Academy

Equinunk, PA 18417


Overview

The IHC Tennis Academy (IHCTA) is the best of both worlds— a week long tennis academy mixed in with an uncomparable summer camp experience. The IHC Tennis Academy is an unique opportunity, designed to help your child learn and improve their tennis whilst also helping them develop independence through an amazing sleepaway summer camp experience in Pennsylvania.

It doesn't matter what level you're child is at, our USTA & ITF qualified coaches will be there to develop them as tennis players on the court. Off the court we have a team of camp counselors ready to give them a summer of FUN. They will make new friends, try new things, and grow in so many different ways.

They are going to have the opportunity to waterski, zipline, eat s'mores by the campfire, play tennis as much as they want. We call it Childhood Unlimited and it happens at the IHC tennis academy.

I had a really fun time at IHCTA and made a lot of friends. We enjoyed our time on the tennis courts, but also loved all the other activities. My favorite activity besides tennis was tubing in the lake!

My son Mac had a great experience at IHCTA and is eager to go back. Mac came back home with a lot of confidence and I was able to see the improvement in his game. Most importantly he came back home with a lot of stories to share and a big smile in his face

I see Denis with more desire to play tennis after she came back from IHCTA. I can definitely tell the staff cared about Denis’s tennis and personal development

I’ve always loved tennis and I am passionate about the sport. I also like spending time with friends and having fun. At IHCTA I got the best of both worlds and I had a really good time with my friends and coaches. I am already looking forward to going back next summer!

My two kids Mike and Hanna have different tennis skills and they both loved tennis camp. Mike is currently competing in USTA tournaments, while Hanna is a beginner. IHCTA provided a fantastic experience for both and they loved every second
