Junior Golf Summer Camp

Half-day Junior Golf Camps

This program, Level I of our three Summer Camps offered at Canal Shores GC in Evanston, is for beginners or students with limited experience. Students will be grouped by age and skill level in a fun, exciting, and engaging golfing environment. Campers start with fun games and drills on the practice area and putting green to help them learn fundamentals and the importance of safety, rules, and etiquette. Once students display the necessary proficiency, they take their skills and knowledge to the golf course.

Once they get there, students will learn how to get around a golf course, which means displaying the proper conduct while keeping pace with the group in front of them. Groups will compete in friendly competitions, including scramble and best ball formats.

Before the week begins, campers will be assigned to larger teams that compete in a week-long points race that features several fun and competitive challenges. The Drive, Chip & Putt event on Fridays is always a favorite among students.

Students will:

  • Acquire the fundamental movement skills used in golf
  • Understand the conceptual framework of various strokes
  • Develop a love and appreciation for the game of golf
  • Learn to keep pace with the other players on the course

Canal Shores Golf Club (Evanston, IL)


We had a successful 2020 summer camp season, with no known cases, by requiring masks for staff and students and doing our best to maintain six feet of social distancing, along with other safety measures. Once students get on the course and are outside that six-foot range of each other, they are allowed to remove their masks. As it stands today, we will continue with the same safety measures in 2021 in order to keep everyone as safe as possible.

M–F: Students are assigned start times between 8:15am – 10:00am. Two groups of four will start at 8:15am, two groups at 8:30am, in 15-minute intervals, until 10am. Although two groups start at the same time, they won’t interract with each other. Each student finishes 2.5 hours after their start time, which will be emailed to parents the Friday before camp. Younger students will start first, while older students will go later in the day. In other words, a 5-year-old will start closer to 8:15am than 10am. A 14-year-old, meanwhile, will start closer to 10am than 8:15am. 


Camps sold out extremely fast this past summer. We recommend securing your spot when regisration opens in early January. 


We will issue a full refund if we know 48 hours or more in advance. If it’s inside that window, we will apply credit to your account, to be used toward future group programming.
