Our goal is to deliver a positive and seamless experience for campers and their families.
New for 2021 – PICKLEBALL! For Kids Grades K - 3
FRA is pleased to host Tennessee’s first junior pickleball camp. The game with the funny name is the fastest growing sport in the US and a great way introduce your child(ren) to fun, athletic competition.
Pickleball is the ideal first sport for kids. The game is easier to play than tennis -- the racquet is shorter, the court smaller, and the ball slower. While combining elements of tennis, ping pong, and badminton, children often have an early appreciable satisfaction with pickleball—greater contact with the ball, longer rallies, and the gratification of quickly excelling at a new sport.
Junior Panther Camp
We are pleased to offer the Junior Panther Camp series to serve our PreK-4 through kindergarten campers. Families may choose half- or full-day care options. Half-day campers will leave after the morning camp at 11:30. Students requiring full-day care may be enrolled in a morning Jr. Panther Camp, from which they will go to a supervised lunch, followed by nap and playtime. Our goal is to meet the unique needs of our youngest campers, while providing plenty of enrichment and fun. Please bring a drink and lunch for full-day campers.
All program updates will be shared on our website and directly with those registered for summer programs. Cancellations by participants or the school due to COVID-19 will be refunded. Franklin Road Academy is committed to student and employee safety and to following public health guidelines.
