Callabar is a tennis and swimming club with limited membership, owned and operated by the members of the club. Members have full use of all of the facilities anytime camp is not in session. Our club is an extension of your own backyard so make yourself at home as often as you’d like. Enjoy a weeknight dinner by the pool after work. Bring friends on the weekends or evenings and stay all day!
The Club property consists of three tennis courts, a children’s playground, basketball and shuffleboard courts, and grassy fields for games. Nine acres of wooded property complete with trails, surrounds the camp. The clubhouse contains dressing rooms for men and women, a kitchen, and large multi-purpose room with a fireplace and large screen TV/DVD. Outdoor barbecue grills and picnic tables are available for members’ use as well.
An “L” shaped pool with wading pool one foot in depth attached to a larger swimming area that is graduated in its depth from 2 feet to 9 feet. All members are allowed use of the pool during lifeguard hours.
Three tennis courts sit on the knoll next to the pool. Catch a late day workout on the courts after camp is done or on weekends members can sign-up for tennis lessons or play in a round robin. Gather at the pool for post match refreshments or a late afternoon barbecue.
Our summer camp program is structured yet fun, a safe place for your child to explore and grow. Many of our campers are children of former campers. Your child will create friendships that last a lifetime. Learn more about our camp here.
For over 75 years, Callabar has operated by the work of volunteers from its membership base. We each participate in whatever way we can to ensure Callabar’s legacy lives on.
Our current Board of Directors includes:
Wayne Platte – President
Zoe Dunn – Vice President
Kathryn Heidecker - Secretary
Eleni Dedovich - Treasurer
The membership fees have been updated for 2023. These assume the inclusion of 6+ hours of service to the club. For those who prefer not to participate in the operation of the club, they are assessed an additional fee of $300 for the season for their work hours.
