Our summer golf camps around the world
Your sons or daughters love to play golf and this summer they might want to try something different in order to practice their swing. At Ertheo we have great options to choose from with our summer golf camps located in many parts of the world.
To make it easier, we have put together all our golf camps in one article and have specified the most important characteristics so you can decide which one is the best fit for your child. The camps you will find bellow are in Europe and the United States, both locations have the most golf tradition.
Before we show you the different campus to choose from, we would like to share with you some points to consider when choosing a camp for your child´s needs and your own. To choose a camp you should consider:
- Student age category: The first fact you should consider is the student age category established by each organization for participants. Here you can narrow it down since there are camps that offer programs from the age of 13.
- Training level: This is the most important. You need to be clear on what level your kids have because if you send them to a camp for experienced kids, the experience can result in a negative one if they do not meet the level of play.
- Language classes: You may want your kids to learn English at the camp and you must consider those that combine sports with classes.
- Facilities: Even though all our programs take place in excellent facilities, take a look at where the training takes place so you can consider which golf courses are better or worse. You must also consider the housing since this is where kids spend a good part of their day.
- Dates and prices: All the camps have a minimum duration of 2 weeks and some can be extended further. Each camp has an established price that can vary between 1.155€ and 2.860€.
