The destination camp is an extensive 3-day pickleball camp. After the 3 days (typically 15 hours on-court), you will go home more confident in your pickleball game and with a collection of skills which will allow you to play better pickleball and most importantly, have more fun.
The Destination Camp is designed for a 3.0 – 4.0 player. Topics covered will include dinks, volleys, 3rd Shots, court positioning, court awareness, and more. Each camp also comes with individual video recording which is reviewed together with the student at the end of the first day.
Camp times vary by location, but typically start from 8-10AM and finish each day at 2-4PM. A basic lunch is typically provided if there is a 1 hour lunch break.
Following camp the first day, all campers are invited to join the pro(s) for a dinner during which the individual videos will be reviewed, unless otherwise specified. (dinner cost separate)
Camps maintain a low 1:8 teacher to student ratio and are typically capped at 16 participants, providing a great environment for campers to interact with each of the pros.
Rise Pickleball Camps is currently owned and operated by me, Rob Davidson. Helping out in too many ways to list is my wife, Shonda. I love pickleball and I love teaching. There is no greater reward to me than helping someone improve. I play at the highest competitive level, but also enjoy playing recreationally with all skill levels. Pickleball is a great sport!
