Ramah Tennis Academy

Two well-respected names in the world of summer camps and recreation are partnering to create a high-level, professionally-led, tennis program for campers at a Jewish residential overnight camp.


The Ramah Tennis Academy, which began in Summer 2014. offers daily, professional tennis instruction to campers currently in grades 5-9 who are enrolled in the second session at Camp Ramah in the Poconos.

For over 36 years, Julian Krinsky’s name has been synonymous with high-level, professional tennis instruction in the greater Philadelphia region. His desire to partner with Camp Ramah stems from lessons learned in his childhood.

“Growing up in South Africa, going to Jewish Day School and excelling in website-RTAsports, namely tennis, has allowed me the opportunity to play at Wimbledon, the French Open, and more dearly, the Maccabi Games in Israel,” said Krinsky.  “I am perpetually drawn to share my love of tennis and Judaism which have blessed my life and brought me to where I am today.”

For Krinsky and Camp Ramah, this partnership was akin to a match made in heaven.

According to Rabbi Seltzer, “My dream is that because of Ramah Tennis Academy there will someday be a Jewish tennis pro playing at the US Open, and when they ask him or her, ‘Where did you get your start?’ they will answer, ‘at Camp Ramah in the Poconos’.”

Julian Krinsky believes this to be the beginning of something great.  “When two great programs come together, how can something greater not occur?”
