The first meal for the campers will be a pizza night on Sunday evening after evaluation. The last meal for all of the campers will be lunch on Thursday.

This year campers will be housed in Clemson's Core Campus C & D building. All dorms are air-conditioned and supervised 24 hours a day. Each 2-bedroom suite accommodates 4 campers - double occupancy in each room. Beds are oversized single (38" x 85"). The dorms are conveniently located within walking distance to the Clemson Tennis Center and Core Campus Dining Hall where campers will have their meals.

Campers reside and participate in a safe and monitored environment throughout the camp week. Only Clemson University youth camps are permitted in the dormitories during the summer. The room assignments are made according to age and gender. There are no co-ed dorms. At Tiger Tennis Camp, the camp counselors reside in the same dormitories as the campers attending the camp. These counselors are always available to our campers 24 hours a day while camp is in session.

Roommate Requests

Please be sure to indicate your roommate requests on your application. Roommate preference must be requested by both campers. If no request is made, a roommate will be assigned to you based on your age. Each dorm room accommodates 2 campers in a double occupancy room. If you have indicated your selection for a roommate please be sure they have requested you! Roommate assignments are made one week prior to each camp session; changes made after that time cannot be guaranteed.

Key Deposit / Lost Keys

If a camper loses their room key during the camp session, they will be required to pay a $75.00 fee to replace the lock. This fee is imposed by the Clemson University Housing Department. This refundable deposit is collected at check-in on Sunday.

Spending Money

We recommend campers bring no more than $25.00 in small bills. Vending machines are available in the dorms and campers may purchase snacks and drinks in the store located next to the dining hall. Racquets may be restrung at camp for a fee of $20.00 per racquet. If string is supplied by the camper the fee is $10.00. Please plan ahead if you know you regularly break strings.

Lost / Stolen Items

Tiger Tennis Camp is not liable for theft or loss of a camper's personal property. It is the responsibility of the camper to keep their door locked when they are away from their dormitory room. Campers are encouraged not to bring a large amount of money or valuable items to camp (i.e., TV, CD player, etc.)
