Half Day Camp Schedule

First Tee – Greater Wilmington invites you to join us for our 2022 Summer Camps at the First Tee Learning Center (310 Donald Ross Dr., Wilmington, NC 28409)! Our intention is to provide a fun and safe learning environment for youth who enjoy golf! We utilize organized drills, challenging games, and friendly competition to introduce, reiterate and reinforce the First Tee Core Lessons.

First Tee – Greater Wilmington Half Day Camps provide a high-level introduction to youth of all ages, abilities, and skill levels. Our trained counselors and coaches BUILD GAME CHANGERS by introducing campers to the game of golf while instilling the First Tee Core Values and Healthy Habits into each activity. Activities consist of warm-ups, drills, games, contests, and more! 

Campers are welcome to bring their own golf clubs but may borrow a set of clubs for the week. If you do need to borrow golf clubs you will be asked to reserve those during the registration process. We strongly encourage campers to bring a hat, sunscreen, and water, snacks will be provided (but can be brought from home).
