Tiger Woods is taking part in a training camp for kids
Tiger Woods has joined a camp for children at a golf course in Michigan that has become a popular place for golfers to meet their families.
The Tiger Woods Foundation announced that Woods would lead a week-long camp at its Oak Hills Golf Club on Friday.
The Woods Foundation, a charity, has hosted many campers since it was established in 2005.
Woods, who is a member of the U.S. Open golfing team, has also held camps in the United Kingdom, England and the United States.
“We’re really excited about it and want to get everyone involved in it,” Woods told ABC News on Friday morning.
The foundation said that the camp is the first in a planned series of camps that will run throughout the year.
“It is a great opportunity for young people to meet families, get to know each other, build connections and be a part of a fun and enriching experience,” said Dr. Amy Meehan, president and CEO of the foundation.
“There are a lot of kids who are struggling with anxiety and depression, and we’re working on ways to connect them with the support they need.”
A few of the campers have received financial support from the foundation, which was founded by Woods in 2005 to support families affected by mental health issues.
Woods said the foundation has partnered with other local charities to offer free counseling for campers.
The camp will run through the end of May, and will be held at the Oak Hills golf course, which is located in the small town of St. Joseph.
