Evening Activities

Final Play Day 
On the final day of camp, campers are divided into different divisions based on age and ability and show their skills while participating in a team setting. Parents are welcome to come and watch their daughters compete. Play begins at approximately 8:30 a.m. and camp concludes after the awards ceremony immediately following play.

Housing & Food
Resident campers reside in The Callaway House - Austin -- one of The University of Texas' newest housing facilities. 

Campers will stay two or four to a room and roommates can be requested when registering online. Otherwise, roommates will be selected based on age.  Please make sure that your camper and her preferred roommate have written each other down on their respective registration forms.  We will do our best to accommodate everyone's request. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided for all resident campers. Day campers receive lunch and dinner.

Parking is available at the Callaway House garage during orientation. There will be a golf bag drop-off on the first floor of the garage at The Callaway House. The golf bags are loaded and transported to the golf course for the remainder of the week. It won't be necessary to keep golf clubs in the rooms.

Transportation
Transportation is provided for overnight campers from the Callaway House to the University of Texas Golf Club facility each day.  Campers are assigned a transportation group and ride in vans/SUVs to/from the facility.

Day Campers will need to provide their own transportation to/from activities.
