Each Summer, during selected weeks, The First Tee of the Golden Isles offers a camp-like experience to local youth ages 7-12.  Whether your child is new to the game or looking to get to the next level, our focus is on enriching your child’s summer experience through character education, STEM activities, and fitness exposure all while learning the game of golf and having fun.  Campers are split into small groups for the week and led by a trained instructor of The First Tee.  Our camps focus is on the PLAYer level for those already enrolled in our curriculum programs.
