With summer vacation right around the corner, now is a perfect time to consider a new activity that the kids can learn, or a place where an established skill can be strengthened. And if that skill happens to be golf, then the Junior Summer Day Camp at DeBell’s Golf Club in Burbank is the perfect place! Over the last several years, DeBell Golf Club has been able to provide a place where children of all ages and skill levels can go, not only to have fun with other day camp companions, but to learn about one of the world’s most artful sports. In fact, according to David Gallegos, a long-time employee at DeBell Golf Club, current DeBell club members well into their forties and fifties still fondly remember their time as a young day camper learning the basics of one of America’s most popular pastimes. At DeBell’s Junior Summer Day Camp, children aged five to seventeen, regardless of skill level, can attend sessions throughout the summer to develop basic golfing abilities, hone in on intermediate skills, or perfect already strong skills.
For the summer of 2009, three sessions, each lasting for two weeks, will be offered beginning the week of June 15th, the second July 13th and the last beginning the week of August 3rd. To ensure that every camper will get the instruction that he or she needs, group sizes will remain small and each group of campers will be divided by skill level and age. Children five to nine years of age will meet Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays while those ages ten to seventeen will meet Thursdays and Fridays. With the opportunity to take full advantage of DeBell’s Golf Course, and extensively stocked golf shop, campers will have plenty of time to practice what is learned during lessons. All participants will receive t-shirts, prizes and a certificate of participation, as well as a farewell celebratory luncheon on the final day of camp.
