Windridge Tennis and Sports Camps
1215 Roxbury Road
Windridge ... a tradition of tennis, soccer and horseback riding and so much more for over 50 years. Located in the Green Mountains of Vermont, the Windridge Tennis and Sports Camp stands unique in that they feature specialized sports programs within the framework of a traditional New England camp setting.
Since 1968, children have come to Windridge from most of the 50 states and more than 30 countries to share in the Windridge experience. Campers make a commitment to hard work, good sportsmanship, and wholesome fun and laughter, within a warm and friendly environment.
Windridge offers two-week and four-week coed sessions from June through August, serving ages seven through 15. Windridge’s 4:1 camper-to-counselor ratio is an important factor in its warm and nurturing environment. In addition, we offer two 10-day Rookie Camps for 7-10-year-old first-time campers.
Windridge offers “majors” in tennis, soccer and horseback riding. Campers will develop skills in their chosen major each day while rounding out their schedule with electives like golf, mountain biking, archery, a ropes course, basketball, volleyball, arts and crafts, and more. Windridge adds to this a wide variety of exceptional evening activities and special events, such as Carnival Day and Teela-Games to create a well-rounded experience for each camper.
