The Selkirk Saints Athletics and Recreation program in Castlegar is preparing for another excellent week of golf instruction and activities for youth aged seven to 17.
“We are very happy for the opportunity to keep this camp going after seven strong years,” comments Kim Verigin, camp coordinator and athletic director of Selkirk College.
The camp focuses on the long and short aspects of the game, specialty shots and mental preparation. Club making, history and rules and etiquette of the sport are also covered.
“The main goal is to expose young golfers of all ages and ability levels to exceptional instruction and facilities that will help and encourage them to enjoy the game and get to the next level if they so desire,” said Verigin.
Locations over the week include the Castlegar Golf Club, Little Bear Golf Course and Castlegar Campus.
Locals may opt for the day camp package that runs from 9 to 4 p.m. and out-of-towners can choose the residence camp option which includes lodging, 24-hour supervision and evening activities such as swimming, a night at the movies, Wii sports and fishing on the Columbia River. All attendees can count on more than 24 hours of on- and off-course training, 36 holes of golf, computerized swing and video analyses, meals, snacks and free golf balls and a free golf shirt.
The final registration deadline is June 15.
