Summer is almost over and for many of us, great memories and best friends were forged at summer camp. From enrichment to lakeside fun, a business program in the city to a sports camp outdoors, you’re not surprised when you hear about the benefits of summer camp. Experiencing life at camp yourself as a child, you know the profound positive effect that still matters to you as an adult, and you also know that you want the same experience for your own kids.
You may not know why so many parents are committed to sending their kids to camp, so in this article we are going to talk about the many benefits of enrolling your child at Golf Camp. Grant Griffiths has over 13 years experience directing golf camps on the Main Line, so you'll find this interesting.
At golf camp, students spend their day being active on the driving range and golf course, while experiencing something fun and challenging. With so much time these days spent doing homework, extra classes, projects, and studies, golf camp provides a wonderful opportunity to get active, exercise, and enjoy the outdoors. Golf camp also helps children build self-confidence and self-esteem by removing the kind of competition that shapes their lives at school. With golf, you get fun and engaging activities that help campers succeed. Golf camp life is a real boost for young golfers. There’s accomplishment every day at golf camp and great stories of birdies, swing fixes, course expeditions and new friendships to be told around the dinner table.
Golf camp also allows kids to take a break from TV, cell phones, and the Internet, they rediscover their creative powers and engage in the real world— real people, real activities, real challenges and real emotions. Play-a-Round Golf Camps provides well-designed instruction, facilities and golf courses for kids to enhance their sports abilities and develop lifelong skills.
Golf camp is also the perfect choice for kids to practice making decisions for themselves, especially when playing golf on the course. Our team of golf professionals will guide campers with the correct club choice, shot making skills and course management, but the student makes the ultimate decision when playing the shot. This process teaches campers to take responsibility and grow as players. This is a great life lesson, and benefits many campers as they progress to college and the working world.
On a final note, camp, and golf camp in particular, is the best place where kids make their very best friends. My best friend, who now lives in New Zealand, played golf with me everyday, and I still laugh about the many funny experiences we had and how we enjoyed challenging ourselves to better scores and longer drives. Free from the social expectations pressuring kids at school, golf camp encourages a time to relax and make friends easily. All of the fun at golf camp draws everyone together— singing, laughing, talking, playing, birdies, pars, bogeys and splashes.
This is all part of the fun, that we hope to teach junior golfers this summer, fall and winter at Play-a-Round Golf Junior Camps, and that one-day, your kids will look back and think of wonderful memories and great times playing this amazing game.
