The three-day camp, hosted by the Gallup Men's Golf Association, was held for 100 kids, ages 6 to 18, at the Fox Run Golf Course this past week.
Due to the sponsorship of local civic organizations such as Gallup Elks Lodge 1440, Sunrise Kiwanis, Noon Kiwanis and many local individuals and businesses, the camp was free for the junior golfers. Donations amounted to $8,000.
Each registered camper received a lunch, cap, T-shirt and a gift bag.
"It is a great turnout," NB3 Community Relations Director Clint Begay said. "The Gallup Men's Golf Association did a fantastic job of promoting the event. The kids had a great time, learning all phases of the game of golf, including nutrition.
“NB3's mission is to reduce the incidence of childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes,” he said. “Also to promote the leadership development of Native American children through evidence-based sports, health and wellness programs, research and strategic grant making."
