Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
Would recommend to anyone!
"Excellent camp! Safe, fun, instruction and good sportsmanship was stressed. Well worth the cost."
— Eva C. Parent
I'll be back next year
"I liked how we needed to walk the holes, so everyday we got to gain endurance and knowledge of the sport. The food was great. When we did the stations that helped me personally learn how to more consistently hit the ball with full contact. The camp gave me confidence and I made new friends while having fun. The experience at Lawrenceville was great and I hope I can do it again!"
— Carter O. Camper

Instruction was geared towards younger campers
"I believe that the camp was very enjoyable, mostly because of the friendliness of everyone. My only criticism is that the camp was very short and the instruction was more geared towards younger campers, though that did allow for the older campers to be leaders, since they helped the younger campers."
