What is the Paseo Club's summer camp open house?

May 5th, 2023 | 4 min. read

By Jen Azevedo

As summer looms closer, we may reminisce about our childhoods — long lazy days of basking in the sun, swimming at the pool, and riding bikes with friends.

But as a parent, summer takes on a whole new meaning. 


Who will care for the kids while you work? How can you know if the local camps are well-run? How can you avoid that terrible refrain that children seem to say all too often, “I’m bored”?

The Paseo Club is a social club in the Santa Clarita Valley that serves families of all ages, from babies to eighties. We offer fitness classes, tennis and pickleball courts, and a junior Olympic pool. 

We provide many after-school activities for youth. In the summer we host an awesome summer camp. 

In this article, we will share how you can learn about the Paseo Club’s summer camp — when camp is, what kids do at camp, and how to sign up.

On Saturday, May 20th, from 1-2:30 pm, the Paseo Club will host an open house for anyone interested in learning about summer camp. 

Instructors will demonstrate the games and tennis drills they teach at camp, explain the approach to camp, and answer any questions you may have. 

  • Learn how kids of different levels can do the same drill — scaled or made more advanced — depending on the child. 
  • See how kids are kept busy and engaged even when it isn’t their turn to hit the ball. There is no standing still or boredom! 
  • Meet the instructors and check out the club courts and pool.

What is the Paseo Club’s summer camp?

The Paseo Club provides a tennis youth program throughout the school year. But come summer, the program pauses, and camp begins.

The Paseo Club hosts a summer camp for kids ages 5-18. The camp consists of practicing tennis drills, playing games, eating lunch, swimming, and doing arts and crafts.

The mission of the Paseo Club summer camp is to:comp_50195139375_o

  1. To expose kids to tennis
  2. To provide a fun, educational summer program for kids
  3. To help kids retain the sport of tennis as they grow 
  4. To learn how to make friends, build character, and develop self-discipline 

Who can attend summer camp?

Kids ages 5 -18 can attend summer camp. Children can be beginner, intermediate, or advanced players — all levels are welcome. 

Whether your child wants to attend camp to play tennis for the first time or they are focusing on strengthening their skills for their next competition, the Paseo Club tennis pros can support them.

Camp is open to the entire Santa Clarita Community, members of the Paseo Club, and non-members.
