If your son or daughter has really taken to golf, you might want to consider sending them to a golf camp to hone up their skills. You may not be sure about what is entirely involved with these types of camps or where to look for more information. This post is about some positive aspects of golf camps and where to find the most popular ones at this time.
Many golf camps take place in the summer months for your kids to enjoy. They are well supervised, structured, and full of activities that will keep your child actively engaged learning all the ins and outs of golfing. Naturally you want to be sure to choose a golf camp whose instructors are recognized or accredited by the PGA/LPGA.
Golf camps will expose your child to proper techniques, etiquette, and training on computer-based digital instructional systems. It’s your choice whether to send them to a camp that provides for overnight stays or a simple day camp. Camps that offer overnight stays should give you a schedule of the events your child will engage in right to the time that they are required to go to bed. Some camps, such as US Golf Camps, will even allow you to view your child’s progress through the internet while they are in sessions.
Some of the more popular golf camps that you may want to consider are US Golf Camp in Saltsburg, PA, Maine Tennis and Golf Academy in Belgrade, ME, and Joel Ross Golf and Sports Camp in Kent, CT. Each of these facilities come highly recommended, with Maine Tennis and Golf Academy is the number one Sports Illustrated Kids Pick. Some golf camps offer a highly concentrated round of mostly golf activities, but the Maine Tennis and Golf Academy also has a lite version of it’s golf camp where golf is the main activity only two days a week.
The reputations of these camps are such that parents send their children back again and again, knowing their children are safe and well looked after. These camps are more than instructional institutions, they are fun get a way’s for your children to grow and make new friends.
Like many specialty sports camps, residential golf camps are not cheap. However, you may find that your local golf course or city recreation department offers golf day camps or at least golf lessons.
Be sure that the level of training at the camp you choose matches the needs and interests of your son or daughter. You want to encourage them to continue to play golf not make them sick of it. Talk to the camp staff to see if golf is the only or main activity or if there is a mix of gold instruction and play as well as other typical summer camps activities. Golf camp should be fun and set your child on the path to enjoy playing golf for a lifetime.
