St. Peter, Minnesota
By Roger Cox, Editor
Well run and economically priced, these Tennis and Life Camps understandably tend to fill up very quickly. Camps for juniors alternate with those for adults and families during June and July. Adults, like juniors, have the option of staying in dormitories and dining in the college cafeteria. All leversl are welcome, from beginners to very strong (NTRP 5.5) competitive players, with instruction adjusted to each level's ability and conditioning level. Neal Hagberg, who since 1981 has headed up the "and Life" aspect of the camp, has now taken over the tennis directorship. He and his wife Leandra are nationally acclaimed singer/songwriters nationally acclaimed singers and songwriters. He not only provide inspiringn talks but with his wife provides entertainment during the adult sessions.
