Camp Marlin

MVP is proud to offer a valuable amenity to our members each summer, Camp Marlin!

Summer 2018

The camp will run for seven weeks, June 11 - August 3, Monday - Friday from 8:30am - 2:30pm. Campers are engaged in weekly fun and educational themes and activities. You can sign up for the whole summer or just the weeks that work for you.  To enroll, campers must also be members of the swim team or or enrolled in tennis during their camp session as camp is part of the club's swim and tennis programs.

Please note that there will be no Camp Marlin the week of July 4th, however Tennis Summer Camp and Tennis Summer Youth Clinics are available that week. 

For little kids (5-8)

The program offers supervised outdoor camp activities and free play throughout the day. Camp Counselors will escort campers to and from their swim & tennis practices, clinics, and lessons so they have a safe transition and enjoy a variety of activities throughout the day in addition to camp.

For big kids (9-11)

Wanting our “big kids” to have a space of their own, we have a “Chill Zone” with seating, shade, ping pong tables, board games and more. They have the freedom to move between the organized program and the Chill Zone as it interests them.
