The GolfAcademy is once again ready to welcome children and teenagers across two age groups (8-12 and 13-17 years old), for a week of sports and fun activities in the unique seaside landscape to cap off their summer holiday.

Through the Camps, Costa Navarino is encouraging the next generation of golfing professionals to step up to the tee and experience the destination’s signature courses, The Dunes Course and The Bay Course.

Regarded as amongst the best in Europe, the courses are the ideal setting for this entertaining, sports focused five-day programme.

For those attending the camps, there are two accommodation options, either to stay with their parents at the Westin Resort Costa Navarino, or to exercise their independence staying alone at the unique Sandcastle facility under the supervision of the experienced and trained personnel from the Worldwide Kids Company – the leading international company in professional child care.

The Junior Golf Camps provide an introduction to golf through theory and practical tuition at the state-of-the-art NavarinoGolfAcademy complete with driving range, short game area, putting green and indoor simulator. Enriched by a wide range of sporting and cultural activities, every participant will have a diverse experience of not only golf but also learning about the area and its rich history.
