COVID-19 Guidelines & Best Practice for Spring Break Camps

Green Tree is a large and spacious facility that makes it easy to spread juniors out and keep in separate groups. It is an ideal facility for fun activities such as tennis (with seven beautiful courts and decks) volleyball, basketball and tetherball with lots of space for kickball, soccer and other outdoor games kids enjoy.

As probably most of you know, TENNIS has the lowest risk level of just about any activity you can do. It is a sport played OUTSIDE and lends itself to SOCIAL DISTANCING guidelines. Warm/hot temperatures also reduce significantly the life of COVID-19.

**Face Mask Requirements for Campers:

  • Half Day Camp 10am-2pm: There are NO face mask requirements.
