Nike Junior Overnight Camp at Boulder offers each junior golfer the same opportunity to succeed, regardless of their starting point. Coach Neher and his staff offer a positive and fun learning environment, one in which campers can thrive under the direction of motivated and highly skilled instructors. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
Check-In and Check-Out
Check-in will take place on Sunday, at CU Boulder from 1:00-2:30 pm. The graduation ceremony will be held on at 1:00pm, followed by check-out from 1:30-2:00 pm. Pillows and pillow cases are provided, but linens are not.
Campers should fly into Denver International Airport. We recommend to book arrival times between 9-11 am to allow for enough time to arrive to the campus. The preferred departure time is after 4pm. Campers are to secure their own transportation to and from Denver International. Follow this link for information about shuttle services: http://www.flydenver.com.
The Overnight camp includes all golf instruction, course play, evening activities, housing, and all meals. The Extended Day fee includes all of the above except housing and breakfast. Extended Day campers may participate in the evening activities which will include golf activities, recreational sports, movies and more.
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 detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring.
Campers are given the opportunity to practice and play at some of the most beautiful and top-rated courses in the state. Each day campers will travel to a different course around Boulder to polish their golf games. The courses include Riverdale Golf Courses, Lake Valley Golf Club, and Flatirons Golf Course. Greenway Park Golf Course in Broomfield plays host to the end of the week camp tournament.
