The summer camp program will be for children ages 7 – 12.  Campers will be placed in groups of approximately 10 – 12 campers with a senior and a junior counselor, providing a 1:6 counselor / camper ratio.  The majority of our senior staff has an education degree or is pursuing education in college.  During the day, campers will rotate through a schedule that includes organized tennis provided by our Tennis Pro, swim instructions from our trained swim staff, painting by our artist, sports activities such as fishing, soccer, volleyball, and basketball, and organized games.

Each day campers will also have a session of free swim and the opportunity to engage in an elective of their choice such as GaGa pit, STEM activities, or arts / crafts.  This gives the campers the opportunity to pick activities of interest.  All day long the children will be active doing fun and engaging activities.

Attention Tennis Players

I’m excited to announce Tennis Addiction’s partnership with Pennypacker CC. Covid slowed us down in 2020 but 2021 is a New Year! The Silver Lining is it’s given us enough time to plan for the coming Spring/Summer/Fall Program. We painted the Tennis Center and repaired and resurfaced the main 3 courts. We have a staff of certified and USTA Net Generation Compliant pros, who all have their clearances and background checks, ready to go. Our junior program will use Red, Orange, Green, and Yellow Ball, and we’ll have the best equipment including hoppers, carts, and New Balls available for purchase. Stringing and Racquet customization is also part of the program and don’t forget Pickle Ball! We'll have weekly programs and special events. We’ll have a full Junior Program with instructional clinics and Team Tennis. We are working with the Cup and USTA captains to get all of our teams in place. Tennis will be part of the PCC kickoff event in May! If anyone has questions or comments please contact me at 610-721-7003 or email me at Anthony2468@comcast.net!

See you on the courts!

Pennypacker Country Club Rules

RULES FOR FOOD:

  •  Food may only be eaten on the snack bar patio areas or in the grove.
  •  No food or alcohol is permitted within the pool area.
  •  Only cups/plastic bottles with lids are permitted in the pool area.

 

NO SMOKING, GLASS,  or ALCOHOL permitted in the pool area.

Broken glass is a very serious issue for pools. In addition to someone walking on it, it could land in the pool creating a need to close the pool in order to drain it and remove the glass. NO glass!

 

RULES FOR FLOATATION DEVICES:

We do not allow any flotation devices in the main pool. Over the years, we have found that children using flotation devices become dependent on them and can float into areas where they are not comfortable. For this reason, we request that all children wearing Coast Guard approved floatation devices are limited to the baby and frog pool areas.   An adult must accompany any child wearing an approved life vest in the water at all times. Swimmies and comparable devices will not be allowed. Additionally, larger flotation devices prohibit the lifeguards from properly monitoring swimmers.   Based on our experience, smaller children can get trapped under the device and are harder to spot.  However, the exception to this is when we have a scheduled “Float Night”.

 

RULES FOR SWIM DIAPERS:

Swim Diapers are not allowed in the main pools, but are permitted in the baby pool.  Unfortunately, any accident or diaper leakage requires us to close the entire pool to all guests for treatment.  For the main pool, this could take up to 24 hours.  We are certainly concerned about this type of inconvenience to our members; however, our primary concern is their health and safety, so we strive to keep the pool clean and sanitary according to Pennsylvania and federal regulations.  The CDC's website provides important information on this subject at,

http://www.cdc.gov/healthywater/swimming/swimmers/swim-diapers-swim-pants.html

 

RULES FOR SAFE SWIMMING

In order to prevent injuries and ensure safety, swimmers may not place hands/arms on/around other swimmers’ head, neck and/or shoulders.  This includes sitting on top of other’s shoulders.  Any play beyond the head, neck, and shoulder area that is determined to be rough or unsafe will be at the discretion of the lifeguard and/or Manager on duty.

 

RULES FOR SWIMMING IN MAIN POOL:

For the safety of our children we require children and guests that are 12 years or younger to take a deep water test before venturing out of the shallow end of the main pool.  To pass the deep water test, a child must swim one lap in the deep end of the pool without stopping. The stroke must be strong and the child must be able to lift their head out of the water to breathe. The child must also tread water for one minute. Upon successful completion, a child will get a green band that indicates to a lifeguard that they have passed the test.  Bands should be worn daily.  This test is for your child's safety! Ask at the lifeguard area and a lifeguard will be happy to give the test. If your child is unsuccessful, the first time, the lifeguard will explain what the child should practice in order to pass the test another day!  The swim test must be renewed each summer.

 

NO Pets allowed on property.
