Nike Advanced Schools are golf-intensive and create the ideal environment for the advanced player ready to take their game to the next level. The Advanced School seminars provide the aspiring junior golfer the opportunity to receive information about tournament preparation and college golf recruitment and success. Campers will hear first hand accounts of how members of our staff established themselves throughout various stages of their development. The importance of goal setting, time management, and hard work will be stressed as these are key elements to attaining success in golf and life. Campers are highly encouraged to attend these sessions with questions as the seminars are designed to be interactive and conversational in nature. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
Campers stay two per room in resort accommodations at Mountaineer Inn and have access to the Inn's amenities.
Check-In and Check-Out
Check-in will take place on Sunday from 1:00 - 2:30 pm at Mountaineer Inn. The graduation ceremony will take place on Thursday at the Mount Snow Golf Club at approximately 4:00 pm.
Nike Golf Schools and Jr. Camps does not provide transportation to and from airports, bus depots or train stations. The packet we send to registered campers in the spring offers suggestions on shuttle services for each specific camp. Parents are responsible for making arrangements with a shuttle service to drive campers to camp.
Campers are supervised 24 hours a day. The staff lives in the dormitories/resort accommodations with the campers and participates in evening activities. Drugs, alcohol and tobacco are strictly prohibited, and constitute, along with general misconduct, grounds for dismissal from camp without a refund.
A registration packet will be e-mailed to campers with contact info and further details.
