More Important Camp Details
Nike campers are housed in double rooms on campus and have their meals in the dining halls, giving each camper a glimpse of the college life. Golf instruction takes place at McIver Training Center located at Raven Nest Golf Club, home of the SHSU Bearkats Golf teams. Each day consists of breakfast, morning range instruction, lunch, afternoon course play, dinner, and evening activities. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.
