Make It Count!

First Tee Summer Camps are the ultimate golf experience! Youth learn new golf skills and valuable life skills, have fun through creative games, and get the opportunity to make new friends.

Summer Camp Overview

Each week of camp will have campers going through different skill rotations to work on different aspects of their game. Skills will include putting, short game, full swing, and the golf course. On Friday’s, we will have a Drive, Chip , and Putt skills challenge! Participants will be encouraged to bring a water bottle and small snacks daily. First Tee – Central Arkansas will provide snacks daily, and MK Distributors will provide free beverages for participants all week. Campers do not have to own golf clubs to participate, but we will properly fit your student into U.S. Kids Golf Clubs that week.

Participant Attendance

Attendance is a key component to the success, development, and progression of the First Tee program. As part of our Summer week long camp series, participants are expected to attend all program dates. We ask that while reviewing our schedule, you choose to register for a program that your youth can commit to for the full week. Program space is limited and out of respect and courtesy for fellow participants, volunteers, and organizers, it is important to commit to the schedule.
