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

2022 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”). Extra-long twin sheets are recommended. 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.

What To Bring To Camp

What To bring

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 two weeks prior to each camp session; changes made after that time cannot be guaranteed.

Suitemate Requests

Suitemate requests can be made but there is no guarantee we can accommodate all the requests. You will be notified if we cannot meet your request. In the situation where we cannot meet your request, we will try to place friends close by on the same dormitory floor.

Key Deposit / Lost Keys

A $75.00 room key deposit is required for each overnight camper and is collected at check-in on Sunday. We accept checks or cash for key deposits. Key deposits will be returned to the camper once the room key is returned at time of check-out.

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. If this happens, the key deposit will not be returned at check-out.

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. Campers are also allowed to bring snacks from home for their dorm rooms. Some campers opt to bring a credit card to order and have evening snacks delivered to the dorm. NOTE: Campers are NOT allowed to leave the dorm without supervision.

Racquets may be restrung at camp for a fee of $30.00 per racquet. If string is supplied by the camper, the fee is $20.00. Please plan ahead if 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 dorm room. Campers are encouraged not to bring a large amount of money or valuable items to camp (i.e. – TV, CD player, etc.). Prior to camp check-out, campers should check their dorm room carefully for personal belongings. If personal items are left behind and found by housing, it will be the camper’s responsibility to pay for packaging and shipping if they request the item be returned.
