Camp Details

Skippack offers both Full Day and Half Day programs each camp session to accommodate junior golfers of all skill levels. Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week.

More Details

Full Day Camp

Full Day Camps at Skippack Golf Club run Monday through Friday, 9:00am - 4:00pm.  Every morning for three hours, campers practice all aspects of their games - putting, chipping, bunker play and full-swing.  Morning instruction is followed by lunch and on-course instruction.  The camp has a low camper per instructor ratio to ensure every camper receives attention from the staff.  

Half Day Camp

Half Day Camps run Monday thru Friday from 9:00am - Noon and include fifteen hours of total range instruction.  For three hours each day, campers sharpen their skills with the Nike golf camp staff, made up of PGA and LPGA professionals.  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! 

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.
