**Multi-Sport Camp

Mulit sport is the perfect option for the camper who is interested in improving their tennis but does not want to spend all day every day on the tennis courts. This year we have changed our multi sport component to adapt to the ever changing needs and interests of our campers.

For those who have enrolled in the multi sport camp, we will be offering various sports throughout the week in an air conditioned gym. These will be done approximately 2 hours per day and some of the sports may include basketball, volleyball, indoor soccer and others.

Campers will train at the Globe Foundation Tennis complex which overlooks AOF's baseball and other amazing athletic facilities. You will be training on nine state of the art hard courts with ample room between courts and spectacular areas for viewing match play.

For summer 2018 we have partnered with Tunxis Plantation Country Club to offer a golf clinic led by their professional golf staff. The golf course is located only a five-minute ride from Avon Old Farms School.

This clinic will take place on two afternoons during the first two weeks of overnight camp at Avon Old Farms School (weeks of July 8-13 and week of July 15-20). The clinic will be held on two consecutive days, and will last two hours each day. The focus of this clinic will be on learning the fundamentals of golf; such as etiquette on the course, grips, posture and various aspects of the game. The campers will also have the opportunity to try out their newly learned skills on the course itself.

This two day golf clinic can ONLY accommodate 12 campers and needs a min of 6 campers to run the clinic. Please note that this is not an advanced golf clinic, but rather a beginner/advanced beginner introduction to golf. Children must be at least eight years old to participate.

The total cost for the two days, including instruction, club rental and round trip transportation and extra supervision by one of our counselors, is $140 per child.


If you have already registered for our camp at Avon, but would like to enroll for this "add on" golf elective, please log back into your account or call 1-800-944-7112

The coaches were awesome at the adidas Tennis Camp at Avon Old Farms School. Coach Filipek had collegiate players that we got to compete against during beat the pro. It was a great challenge and look forward to returning to camp.

Great camp with a very low camper to coach ratio. Seemed like everyone was getting personal attention when it came to their strokes.
