Shine in conjunction with Hampton Racquet announces…
Creative Arts + Tennis Afternoon Camp
- Created specifically for the summer season, this new partnership program combines the worlds of sports and arts and is filled with fun and learning for ages 4 to 12.
- Under the care and guidance of master children’s coach John Graham, classes are both instructive and more importantly- fun! John’s love of tennis and transmitting that love is at the core of the program. Classes stress the joy of learning as well as create a supportive atmosphere conducive to the world of competitive play. Campers are grouped by age and level of play and rackets are included.
- Designed and led by Shine and inspired by our summer camp, the creative arts program uses the inspiration of the East End to expose campers to a variety of themes. From flora and fauna, to the abundance of art, architecture, and history, each week will have a different focus and incorporate an array of mediums as well as the opportunity to engage in constructive arts, science and nature exploration, games, and books.
Summer Camp Testimonials:
“My 7 year old and 5 year old went to Shine in the summer of 2014. From the enthusiastic good morning to the happy good byes, camp was a very sweet and magical place for them. I particularly loved having two siblings together at the same camp. My children were very happy with the crafts, outdoor time, and most importantly the gardening they did all summer. Since the group size was intimate, by the end of our month… my two were very sad to leave both their teachers and new friends. Shine is a wonderful camp that speaks outside of the common NYC camps. It is thoughtful and caters to each individual child while maintaining the complexity of the group as a whole. My children both asked me well into the winter if they could return to Shine this coming summer. I wholeheartedly endorse this camp as a wonderful environment for children.”
– Anita Lahey, mom to Declan & Angali
“Aaron’s Shine summer camp is full of fun and perfect for our little girl. She is one of the youngest in her group and was very well taken care of. Our girl left the camp with long standing friendship and fond memories. The staff is warm, experienced and flexible and the program well thought out. It’s a perfect balance between indoor and outdoor activities. We highly recommend this and will be returning in summer 2015.”
– Peggy Tseung, mom to Lara
