Has anyone been to this camp? Or if anyone is familiar with Nike camps at other locations? I really want to hit a lot of balls and play a lot. The camp says 4 hours of instruction per day and I'd really like to play longer considering some of that time is discussion (which I also want). There's something about a cocktail party? Sounds neat but I want to go to play tennis. Maybe I'm too serious... And it's $485 which is a bit of money for me plus lodging etc. I'm maybe a 32 yo male 3.0 playing for a couple years and just love to play and want to get better. Should I go or stay home and hit with partners, wall, machine, play matches etc.???

the camp at the Sun River Resort looks like a much better deal to me. Its also rated very well in Tennis magazine.

I've looked into the various camps in Bend and if I was going to choose one I would sign up for the one in Sun River.

this is what I heard from a friend:
----------
I don't know anything about the camp but I know very well both places,
Eagle Crest is a huge resort in the desert (est of Bend), has all sort
of activities over the summer, Sunriver is a community in the forest,
nice and healthy forest with old poderosa pines, clean air and plenty
of ozone, I like it better than Eagle crest, I played in both places
several times and I know both pros...

More on the two pros:
--------------
The one from Eagle Crest is a better player but a not that friendly
guy, the one in Sunriver is a very pleasant person but, being a
shorter guy did not do that well in the local tournaments. Eagle Crest
guy has a double hand backhand (and tends to stay back), Eric, in
Sunriver, has a sliced backhand and a very good net game, take your
pick...
