Each session will rotate focus on all areas of the golf game including putting, pitching, chipping, bunker play and full swing.

Following lunch, the Kid’s Camp participants will have a choice to participate in the free swim option or forgo the swim to participate in the Junior Creeker Golf Academy on Wednesdays from 1:30pm-3:00pm.

PGA Junior League Prep Team
The PGA Junior League Prep Team is for the junior golfers who are interested in participating in the PGA Junior League, but might not yet have the experience and ability to play on the team. The goal of Prep Team is to work on the skills and knowledge to eventually play on the PGA Junior League Team. The Prep Team practice will take place one hour before the PGA Junior League Team practice. The practice times will be determined once the official PGA Junior League schedule has been finalized. We will also schedule some non-competitive scrimmages with other clubs that have younger players with similar abilities to help introduce the format of PGA Junior League to these players.
Junior Metro League
Cherry Creek Country Club will once again be participating in the Junior Metro League. This is an interclub league consisting of courses from around the Denver-area. The league was built for junior golfers approximately ages 14-18, who can walk and carry their golf bag for 18-holes. The Junior Metro League is meant to help junior golfers gain competitive experience so that they are ready to play tournament or High School golf.
Cherry Creek Country Club is in the East Division of the Junior Metro League. We will play in 5 matches, competing against the other teams in our division: Cherry Hills Country Club, Denver Country Club, Glenmoor Country Club, and Meridian Golf Club. This gives our juniors the opportunity to meet other young golfers around the area and play some great courses in the Denver region.
