Nike Junior Golf Camps
Our junior golf camps near Princeton, NJ return this summer with Coach Ronnie Kane. Camps are hosted by Lawrenceville School, one of the finest prep schools in the country, which is located just four miles south of Princeton University.
The primary emphasis during the RK Golf Academy Day Camps is the development of fundamental skills through group and individual instruction. Coach Kane and his staff create an environment that is conducive to learning by balancing instruction, competition and fun for all campers. Each day is devoted to different aspects of the game. Woods, long irons, short irons, sand play, putting and specialty shots are covered during each session. RK Golf Academy methods of teaching are based on sound principles that have been simplified to help campers quickly grasp the mechanics of the golf swing.
Day Camps run from 9:00am-3:00pm. Coach Kane offers overnight programs at Lawrenceville School in addition to his day camps. For information on these programs, please visit Nike Junior Golf Camps, Lawrenceville School.
