Learned so Much

"The University Idaho/WSU camp that I attended was great. The staff was awesome and I learned so much. They were all so nice and easy to talk to. They were very enthused about the camp and were also willing to answer any questions. They always made sure we were having a good time. I was also able to make some new friends. Four of us are still keeping in touch and we all plan on attending the camp next year at the same time. This camp was an amazing experience."

Staff Was Great

"First, camp my daughter attended that she enjoyed to the extent that she did not miss being home! She had so much fun that she is already planning on multiple Nike camps next year. She loved the exposure to the campus golf facilities and plans to try and take her golf past the high school level. She learned several tips and strategies to help improve her game and has taken a more serious approach to her practicing since returning. The staff was great at making everyone feel involved and valued!"
