Full Day Camps
These camps are designed for boys and girls between the ages of 5-15. The teaching staff is on hand to provide campers with top quality instruction each day. Our Full Day camps run from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Under the watchful eye of the Nike camp staff, the campers practice all aspects of their games- putting, chipping, bunker play and full-swing. Morning instruction is followed by lunch and then afternoon course play with the staff.
Half Day Camps
These programs include 15 total hours of range instruction and are designed to create interest and foster development in golfers of all abilities. Strong emphasis is placed on the fundamentals—stance, grip, posture, full swing, rules & etiquette, etc. As the week unfolds, campers receive quality short-game instruction and by Friday, each Nike junior golfer will see improvement in his or her golf game!
