About Advantage Sea & Sports Camp 2013
THE ADVANTAGE SEA & SPORTS CAMP mission is to provide each camper with the opportunity to pursue his or her interests, whether it’s learning, improving and competing in a sport, or simply having fun and making friends. We help each camper learn basic ﬁtness and sports skills covering six core activities: tennis, soccer, softball, basketball, swimming and waterfront activities. And it’s all only 15 minutes from Manhattan, the Bronx, Queens and Westchester!
Now in our fourth summer, The Advantage Sea & Sports Camp was founded by Skip Hartman, owner of HCK Recreation and Advantage Tennis and Sports. HCK has operated summer day camps since 1972. Skip Hartman also co-founded (with Arthur Ashe) the New York Junior Tennis League in 1970 and the Sports & Arts in Schools Foundation in 1992.
