You will have to create a user login and password for each site.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

Q: Would it be repetitive for a camper to sign up for consecutive weeks of camp?

A: Not at all!  We recommend that if campers are able, they sign up for more than one week to reinforce techniques.  While each week will follow the same progression of skills instruction, our counselors ensure that repeat campers continue to learn, in a stimulating way, while being reminded of the tennis fundamentals.

Q: My child has a friend at camp. Can we request for them to be in the same group?

A: Of Course. Simply email us with your request. And, communicate with us during the week. We do our best to honor all requests.

Q: What happens when it rains?

A:  Camp is never rained out!!!!  We have indoor tennis courts, racquetball courts and multipurpose space to use.

Q: How many campers will be placed with each counselor?

A: We strive for an 8:1 or better camper to counselor ratio. 


Q: Will my camper have the same counselor every day?

A:  Groups will be switched around frequently.  If you have any special requests, please communicate with us.

Q: How do I know if my child is a beginner, advanced beginner or intermediate player?

A:  A beginner has never played tennis before. An advanced beginner has played a little bit but still struggles with the fundamentals.  An intermediate player benefits from reinforcement of fundamentals and techniques and may be starting to play in some tournaments.

Typically children 8 and under (Swoop's Starters) are at the beginner and advanced beginner levels but if your 8 year old is at an intermediate level, we can bump him/her up to the High Flyer's (ages 9-14). Simply communicate with us prior to registration.

Q: My child is a High Flyer (age 9-14) but I'm concerned he/she is too advanced...

A:  If your child holds a Georgia standing or ranking at the following levels, then he/she might be too advanced for our High Flyer's camp:  In the 10's with a standing/ranking of 50 or higher; in the 12's with a standing/ranking of 75 or higher; in the 14's with a standing/ranking of 100 or higher.  However if you can put together a group of 6 kids at the same level, we can run a specialized group for your child and his/her friends!

Q: I went through the online registration process and opted to pay by check. Where do I send the check and how will I know it was received?

A:  Please send the check to: Bryant Camps, PO Box 2651 Decatur, GA 30031. You will receive an email confirmation within 2 weeks of payment receipt. Checks are due within 2 weeks of online registration or your spot may be forfeited and you will be subject to paying the higher same-day registration prices.

Q: What if my child becomes sick or injured at camp?

A: All directors are CPR and First Aid certified.  Any camper with a serious injury or illness will be taken to the Emory University Hospital immediately. The camper’s parent or emergency contact will be called for every emergency incident.  All parents will be notified about less severe injuries via a take-home injury report.To read more about our safety procedures please click here. We allow make-up days for missed camp due to sickness or injury (not refunds).

Q: Do you recommend that a 5 or 6 year old child sign up for the full-day camp session?

A: Yes! Our 5-6 year-olds are engaged for the full day of camp - and love it! Please call if you have any specific concerns.


Q: How do you transport the campers to the SAAC pool on Wednesday in Sessions II & III?

A: Campers will travel on a chartered Emory shuttle. It is a 6 minute ride to the SAAC and the shuttle travels mostly on no-thru-traffic roads.


Q: I would like to request that my child plays on the indoor courts instead of the outdoor courts. Is this possible?

A: We typically place the Swoop's Starters groups on the indoor courts and the High Flyers on the outdoor courts.  Depending on the number of campers in each camp, we might be able to accommodate your individual request. Please email us to discuss possibilities.
