This camp will be led by club coach, Lesley O’Halloran, and is open to all junior club members from 5 to 15 years old. We will have 24 places available on the camp.\nThe camps will be managed by four coaches/coaching assistants to allow a 1:6 supervision ratio so that your child can get plenty of individual coaching. It also allows the coaching team to manage social distancing and other Covid-19 protocols effectively.\nCOST:\nThe cost to take part in the camp is €65.00 per person.\nWe have needed to increase the cost of our camps this year to cover the increased costs related to operating camps in the Covid-19 environment – we need to implement increased supervision of the camps and contribute to the cost of PPE and clubhouse cleaning.\nBOOKING CONDITIONS:\nPlaces will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis. A waiting list will operate for any members that do not secure places.Places are strictly limited to 24 per camp. All places must be pre-booked, no walk-ups can be accepted.Camps are initially open to members of Stratford LTC only.Places are limited to one per junior member, i.e., please do not book a place for the same member on both morning and afternoon camps.Camp places are non-transferrable and non-refundable.Please note that camps operate subject to minimum numbers. We reserve the right to cancel the camps in the event that not enough children join.

Credit will be given in this instance for another camp, coaching or other purchase in the club.\n\nWHAT TO BRING:\nPlease note that this is an outdoor camp and so children should arrive prepared for the reality of the Irish weather!! Light rain gear, a warm hoodie and a hat should be taken to camp each day. Camp participants should wear comfortable sports wear and trainers for the camp.\nChildren should bring a healthy snack and drink each day for their break time, along with a water bottle. Please make sure names are clearly marked on everything, in particular water bottles.\nABOUT THE CAMP:\nOur tennis camps are a great way to learn and develop tennis skills in an encouraging and relaxed atmosphere. Our camps are suitable for beginner and intermediate players in particular, from ages 5 up to 15 years of age. Our participants will learn essential technique and put it into practice through drills, games and basic match play. Aside from tennis, other fun activities will be offered throughout each day to develop coordination and footwork skills.\nNote that children will not be permitted to leave the tennis club grounds during camp hours, unless by prior arrangement with their parent/guardian. All children should be dropped off and collected from the camp promptly by their parent or guardian. All camp participants are subject to the rules and codes of conduct of Stratford Lawn Tennis Club.\nCOVID-19 ARRANGEMENTS:\nFor the safety of the camp participants, coaching team, members and the wider community we have put a number of special arrangements in place this year. We ask for your support in following these arrangements so that our camps will be safe for all.\nWe have increased our supervision ratios for our camps this Halloween. This will help to ensure that all Covid-19 guidelines are followed at camp.\nWe will supply hand sanitiser and all participants should use this on entering and exiting the club and at break time. Please be mindful of social distancing when arriving and leaving the camp. We have plenty of outdoor space where you can keep the recommended 2 metres apart. All participants must practice hand hygiene, social distancing and cough and sneeze etiquette during camps. We ask parents to please discuss these guidelines with your children before they start camp.Because of Covid-19 restrictions this year we have limited access to indoor space – we are keeping everything crossed for dry weather but reserve the right to cancel the camp in the case of prolonged rain.All parents must complete a Covid-19 declaration during the booking process to confirm that participants are well and will be kept at home if displaying any symptoms of the virus.","IsCustomDescription":false,"Type":{"ID":3,"Name":"Camp","ShortName":"Camp","GlyphClass":null,"Colour":"rgb(20, 73, 152)","IsAvailable":true,"Label":"\u003cspan class=\"label label-lg\" style=\"background-color: rgb(20, 73, 152)\" title=\"Camp\"\u003eCamp\u003c/span\u003e"},"DayName":"Tuesday","Day":27,"Month":"Oct","Year":2020,"Time":"10:00","BackgroundColour":null,"ForegroundColour":null,"ViewURL":"https://my.stratfordtennis.ie/Events/Calendar/View?id=638"},{"EventID":643,"SeriesID":642,"Date":"\/Date(1603807200000)\/","Title":"Afternoon Halloween Camp","Venue":"Stratford LTC","Description":"We are excited to announce junior tennis Halloween mid-term break afternoon camp.
