GOLF, TENNIS COMBINED INTO ONE FUN JUNIOR CAMP
ALL SUMMER LONG AT WINTERGREEN RESORT 

WINTERGREEN, Va. (May 1, 2013) – Combining its award-winning golf and tennis facilities with a variety of summer fun, Wintergreen Resort is offering a summer camp program that combines both popular sports at the 11,000-acre resort atop the Blue Ridge Mountains. 

The Wintergreen Junior Golf & Tennis Camp, under the direction of Wintergreen Resort’s golf and tennis staff professionals, is to be conducted at the Stoney Creek Golf Club and adjacent Stoney Creek Tennis Center. 

Designed for boys and girls ages 7-18 of all skill levels, beginner campers have the opportunity to learn “sports of a lifetime,” while intermediate and advanced levels will focus on technical and tactical improvement in both golf and tennis. 

The four-day camps devote 20 hours of comprehensive instruction (10 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily), with a focus on skill development, emotional and mental training, individualized guidance, as well as team competition.  Golf instruction includes full-swing analysis and covers short-game skills (putting, chipping, pitches and bunker play).  On the tennis courts, campers learn to improve their footwork, fitness and agility, as well as receiving individualized instruction on strokes and strategy. 

Camps are scheduled for June 10-13, July 1-4, July 15-18, July 22-25, July 29-Aug. 1, Aug. 19-22.  (Two “golf-only” camps are scheduled for June 24-27 and Aug. 12-15.)  Tuition is $329 for each session and there is a daily fee of $89 also available for each camp.  Space is limited to ensure a small student-to-teacher ratio. 

Stoney Creek Golf Club is home to the Wintergreen Golf Academy and 27-hole Rees Jones-designed golf course, while Stoney Creek Tennis Center offers four poolside courts along the floor of the Rockfish Valley, beneath beautiful mountain views. 

Also, Wintergreen again is hosting Nike Tennis Camps this summer at the resort’s mountaintop tennis facility.  The Nike Tournament Tough Camp (overnight and day-camp options) is June 23-27 and Aug. 11-15, while the Nike Day Camp consists of three sessions (June 16-20, July 7-11, Aug. 4-8).  There are two Nike Golf Camps at Wintergreen this summer, scheduled for July 7-11 (day camp only) and Aug. 4-8 (overnight, extended day and day camp options).
