Windridge Tennis & Sports Camps stand unique among camps in that we incorporate highly specialized tennis, soccer and riding programs within the traditional framework of a rural New England camp setting.

Thank you for your interest in working at the Windridge Tennis and Sports Camps. We are looking for talented sports enthusiasts who enjoy meeting and becoming friends with other athletes from all over the US and many foreign countries. It takes a very special type of person to be willing to commit your time and energy coaching, playing and living with children. It’s a great life and an unforgettable experience and we hope you soon become a member of the Windridge team.

Our dynamic counselors are hand picked based upon their ability and/or their experience in teaching others. Many are involved in some form of competitive play, have great coaching experience or are busy studying some form of sports degree. With so much talent in one place, your abilities and knowledge will improve too.

As a prospective staff member, you should know that working at camp is extremely rewarding while at the same time, very demanding. We expect a great deal from our staff. The safety of the children and quality of instruction are primary concerns, but our overall focus is FUN! We want you to apply, but only if you understand that for a short period of time, a camp counselor becomes a “parent” to a group of children whose parents have entrusted us with their care. Like parenting, the responsibility can seem overwhelming at times. Like parenting, if you love children and are willing to give to them, they will give back to you a thousand times over and you may have “the best summer of your life!” As a group, we take on this commitment seriously, energetically, and with a youthful spirit. You should know that the use of alcohol, drugs or tobacco while on camp property or trips is NOT tolerated.
