Campers are housed on campus at Rollins in dormitory-style housing and the staff lives in the dorms to provide nightly supervision. Other teaching professionals and current college players assist Coach Frakes throughout the camp week.

Good Experience And Met New Friends!
"I learned lot of new golf skills, and met lots of new friends!"
— Christian D. Camper
Camper Loved Camp!
"My son absolutely loved this camp. He wanted to stay longer! He is already looking forward to next year."
— Melissa M. Parent
"I feel like the camp was great for Christian. He had a great time and made many friends that he will be in touch with. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The only thing that was disappointing was the course they played at everyday. For the money that was spent, I feel they could have been at a better club. Being in Orlando I’m sure there are a lot of courses to pick from. All in all he had a great time and I’m sure will attend again."
— Megan J. Parent
Golf Focused Camp
"The extended practice and play made this a "serious" golf experience. My son mentioned other camps that he felt weren't golf-focused enough, so he was happy with his experience at Rollins."
— Tom B. Parent
So impressed with the staff!
"This was the first time my 10 year old son's first sleep-away camp and while I may have been nervous, he was thrilled.The camp staff provided him the opportunity to be independent in a safe environment and was able and willing to step in when needed. Coach Frakes was outstanding and helped a nervous mom get through the stress easily, the staff are my son's new best buds. My son told me to book it for next year and I will!"
— Louise G. Parent
See you next summer!
