So, how does it work? Our camps are designed to ensure each student is introduced to key elements of the game through fun games and instruction. Daily themes enable games, instruction, and competition to introduce and reinforce learning of a key element of the game, including putting (Monday), chipping (Tuesdays), pitching (Wednesday), full swing (Thursday), and course management (Fridays).  Each day is segmented into Fundamentals in the morning, Fitness and Nutrition in midday, and "Taking it to the Course" in the afternoon. Each session includes a ton of games to help campers: feel welcome, get warmed up, review what they have learned, learn new stuff, make sure they’ve got it, try it out in competition, and celebrate their accomplishments. Breaks are included in each session.

Lunch is provided for campers attending the Midday session and may include sandwiches, pizza, hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, salads, fruit or chips, as well as water or soft drink. You may choose to have your child bring their lunch in a marked paper bag which we will store in our chiller. Please let us know of any special dietary needs.
