The majority of our camps have between 50-75 players. Typical camps are 2-3 times this size, but we don’t take any more players than our course director can know by name. Most of our sessions fill up and we turn away lots of players each summer, but we limit enrollment so we can provide the best experience possible for players.

what others say

It is nearly impossible to sum up the experience throughout a week at the PGC camp. As a coach, I was able to see the skill level of the players rise. However, I was blown away by the leadership and confidence I witnessed the players develop from this program!

I learned so much this week of camp. I had fun and definitely got better!

It brings the fear out of the children on failing and learning how to become a leader on and off the court with their teammates and friends.
