8 year olds can certainly do all day tennis camps, but you do need to look at the various camps out there. Are they more recreational or for serious minded player/families? In Norcal, Nike camps are more recreational with lots of fun and games mixed in. Tons of kids. Tennis club camps tend to be similiar with more breaks and a more casual approach. Something like Eagle Fustar is camp for serious juniors that are all about tennis. Still fun, but not like the rec camps. Try to find camps that are for her level so she is with kids similar to her. If she is more recreational you don't want to put her in a camp where she is pounded and pushed all day. Some kids want that, others don't. And agree, hopefully it is something she wants to do. Usually camps are just a week at a time and you can sign up for one or several depending on how it goes.
