The "Windridge Experience" is centered on the belief that if children are encouraged to do well in areas that they enjoy, they will show positive personality growth. By providing a wide range of instruction in sports and an opportunity for supervised group living, we are able to give campers the fundamentals they need for fulfilling their individual potentials.
Within the Windridge community, youngsters discover the meaning of trust and respect for others, and are able to realize a confidence in themselves as well as a good feeling toward those around them.
With their wonderful evening activities and special events, your child will be in for the summer of their life.
Located in the beautiful Green Mountains of Vermont, Windridge has been the summer home for generations.
The Windridge Tennis & Sports Camp at Teela-Wooket is located in Roxbury, Vermont. Roxbury is 15 miles south of Montpelier, the capitol of Vermont, and is located right in the center of the state. The grounds encompass over 250 acres of woods, hills, meadows, and playing fields. A brook traverses the property. The camp faces west, providing a beautiful view across the valley to the Green Mountains. The dining hall's windowed west side and its wide porch are an enjoyable setting from which to watch magnificent evening sunsets.
Our exciting and well-rounded programs offer campers from around the world the opportunity for personal growth in a safe, friendly and encouraging environment. Kids leave with a sense of accomplishment, self-worth and memories that last a life time.
Our highly qualified staff is selected not only for their playing and teaching ability, but also for their enthusiasm, patience and interest in young people. Parents and campers have always found the caring atmosphere to be one of our most distinctive features, bringing back an exceptionally high number of campers summer after summer.
Majors in Tennis, Soccer and Horseback Riding
Our tennis major is geared to every level of ability. The basis of the tennis program is a focus on fundamentals, emphasizing the correct grips, early preparation, proper footwork, and efficient body mechanics. Other focal points are conditioning, singles and doubles strategy, drills and match play. A challenge ladder is available and tournaments for different ability levels are held at the end of each session. Matches are often scheduled with nearby camps and clubs as well. We incorporate USTA recommended court sizes and ball compressions for relevant ages and abilities in matches and in lessons. Windridge has 22 tennis courts - 13 red clay, 8 HarTru, and 1 indoor hard court. Our ratio of one instructor to four campers provides the opportunity for individualized attention and allows each camper maximum playing time.
Skills building is the essence of the Windridge soccer experience. Our program develops both technical and tactical skills. Small groups practice skills such as dribbling, passing, shooting, trapping, and heading. Tactics are introduced to give purpose and direction to working with teammates. Campers look forward to putting their new skills to work on game days and in scrimmages and games with other camps and local clubs. Each session ends with an intra-camp tournament. Teela-Wooket has two regulation-size soccer fields, a large multi-purpose practice field, and a kick board. Our "Soccer Mansion" provides an indoor area for equipment storage, strategy sessions, and video analysis on rainy days.
Classical English horseback riding has been taught at Teela-Wooket since 1913 and today's campers enjoy a range of mounted activities such as show jumping, dressage, eventing, hunter trials, cross-country, pony club games, and trail riding in the beautiful mountains of Vermont. The emphasis is on fun and skill development in the riding program. In addition, our campers love to play a part in the daily care of their horses. Campers learn everything from stable management to animal behavior and first aid to feeding. We have three outdoor training rings, an indoor arena and many cross-country trails. We appreciate that children are individuals, so our staff are trained to develop a progress plan with each camper designed to boost their confidence and improve their riding skills.
Modern sports development theorists have learned that children between the ages of 8-15 will become better athletes if they are exposed to a number of sports during these ages. Our elective program helps us meet our goals of athlete development by giving campers an opportunity to participate in a variety of both athletic and non-athletic activities. Some of the elective activities are archery, basketball, arts & crafts, mountain biking, pickle ball, ropes course, swimming, volleyball, improv, golf and others offered by our talented staff.
