Junior Golf Camp

Every summer, many children attend a junior golf camp or clinic. A golf camp or clinic comes in many forms and of course it will be best to contact the facility to double check what they will need to make their experience a great one. Many campers are going for the first time and they, as well as their parents, are not sure what they will need while they attend. Below is a short list that should get you on the correct path:

Golf Clubs 
As crazy as this might sound it happens. It is kind of like the warnings on products. You think why do they put that on there? Well, the answer simply is that somebody, somewhere actually tried it! If your junior does not have clubs, check with the facility as they may provide them for the instruction. If not, you can purchase single clubs and not spend a lot of money especially if your child is just trying the game for the first time. We suggest purchasing (in this order) a putter, a pitching wedge, a seven iron and a three wood. This will get your new golfer started.

Comfortable Socks 
Many students, especially first time students, overlook this aspect. If the camp is scheduled for just a few hours in the morning, one pair should be fine. However if there is a before lunch and an after lunch session, putting on a fresh pair of socks can make the world of difference. So much that if your junior is in my camp, their instructor will be changing socks!

Rain Gear 
This is something else that should go without saying but the weather is unpredictable and you just never know what it is going to do. Obviously, an umbrella would be a good choice as well as a rain jacket and a pair of rain pants. If you have an active child, they probably already have these articles from other activities that they enjoy. As long as weather warnings are not out, expect the clinic to keep on going.

As a parent, I would suggest buying a new bottle of sunscreen. Everyone has different needs for which SPF they need to use to protect themselves. Skin cancer is nothing to fight with and it seems like we are learning more and more about how harmful the sun’s rays are for our skin every single day.

A hat goes along with protecting your child from the elements whether it is sun or rain (sometimes called liquid sunshine in the golf world). It does not matter whether it is a golf hat that looks like a baseball hat or a visor. Either will provide protection for their skin as well as their eyes.

Since this may be the first time that your child spends the night away from home, you will want to make sure that you pack all appropriate medications for them. In addition, you will want to print out a list of the medications as well as dosages and times to aid the staff and guarantee that your camper has a great experience.
