Related camps and golf programs

Golf lovers might also consider camps focused on related activities that improve golf skills indirectly. Still other camp types highlighted below may simply be of interest to kids and teens who love golf. Links below explore options that should also pique the interest of aspiring golfers:

Golf lessons after school help improve your game throughout the year, and are often put on by the same organizations related to golf camps. Explore the list linked to and you might find lesson providers near you who offer something unique, to help you improve your game in unique ways.

Multi-sports camps offer a broad slate of sports that introduces kids and teens to activities they may not have been previously exposed. You may fall in love with a new sport or find one in which you’re well-skilled, or one that helps improve your golf game.

Below are some more related sports camps that may have applications for the aspiring teen golfer.

Health and fitness camps focus on practical education in nutrition and fitness. Personal training young golfers might receive at this kind of camp can target specific muscle groups used in golf, or may simply improve overall fitness, manage weight and improve your golf game.

Cycling camps improve leg and back strength, two muscle groups important to avid golfers, especially in the perfection of stance and controlling your swing.

Tennis camps improve your game in this court sport sometimes associated with golf.

Leadership camps are one other camp type we recommend. These encourage self-improvement, and develop skills like sportsmanship and interpersonal skills, important for those interested in being the best they can be, whether that’s on the golf course or in other pursuits in life.

Skills learned in golf camp

Golf camps teach skills directly related to the sport. There’s also attendant other learning and skills acquisition relevant to other parts of kids’ life, in both the present and the future, as you get older and pursue a career, etc.

Golf skills:

Golf camp curriculum is typically split into different focuses. Camps improve a player’s overall game, of course, but specifics will include things like:

  • Improving your drive on an onsite or local driving range, where campers may work one-on-one with instructors and learn through repetition, as well. 
  • Instruction on the putting green, where kids and teens receive instruction focused on mechanics and form, and also through repetition and regular play.
  • Other fundamentals covered in the majority of sports camps listed above include the mechanics of your stance and your golf swing, and optimizing your grip and posture. 
  • Pitching, and playing out of bunkers and the rough are perhaps the biggest challenge in golf play. This, too, will be part of the instruction at golf camp.

Because golf is a social game, specifics of etiquette may also be part of the programming. It’s one of many life skills that are part and parcel of learning at camp. Let's look at others.  

Life skills:

  • Interpersonal skills. Golf focuses on respectful interaction to a much greater degree than sports like hockey, basketball, soccer, and others. It’s a principled game, and principles like sportsmanship are passed on to kids at camp, with implications for other areas of life. Kids in golf camp play and deal with a variety of personalities, and interact both competitively and cooperatively. 
  • Self-evaluation and self-management. As a player progresses through a game, he or she will gage their reactions. They develop their awareness of the importance of a positive attitude and adjusting self-talk, as well as what they say to others. 
  • Goal setting and self-improvement. Kids and teens will set goals and understand how to achieve those as well as dealing with setbacks and disappointments. Of course, this is a benefit common to all sports camps. These skills, though, have implications for academics and other situations.

Things to consider about golf camps

Here are a number of basic questions to ask golf camps, or research as you browse. These can be used in tandem with questions from our checklist. A number of camps listed above are available at the Our Kids Camp Expo, held annually every winter. There, you can meet camp representatives face-to-face, to get answers to all your concerns. You should also check our events calendar for camp open houses. 

Questions:

What golf equipment are campers expected to bring? Some camps may, in fact, discourage kids from bringing their own clubs, to even the field among campers from different economic backgrounds. 

How experienced are instructors in teaching golf? Camps run by former professionals, for example, allow campers to meet and learn from those who have risen through the ranks. Pro circuit experience is not necessarily an indication of how well they teach golf, though. The real success of a golf camp is indicated by factors like the success of graduates, and the words of graduating campers who attest to how much they’ve learned. Consult golf camp profiles on ourkids.net to read stories and testimonials and find out about alumni of that camp. Some camps also offer metrics that show campers how much their game improves during a session. 

How are campers grouped? Some camps group golf students based on age, while others group players based on handicap and skill level. The latter method has the appeal of teaming golfers who will incite improvement through close competition. Age grouping may have the effect of discouraging kids with less skills. 

Is training software and other technology used? The use of golf simulations and software such as Flightscope may indicate that the camp offers more advanced instruction.
