I realize that the half-day (9 –noon) schedule will be hard on some families where both parents work, and to those where this is the case I apologize in advance. I have found over the last 10 years of running baseball camps across the country that most players respond better when the workouts don’t drag on. This is especially true during the summer months where conditions can get very hot & humid, and most campers have baseball games a few nights a week with their summer teams. By having this 9-noon schedule campers will be able to get a good morning workout in and then go home, eat and rest up for that night’s game. The feedback that we’ve received since changing to this current format five summers ago has been very positive from both parents and campers.
We also offer an Advanced Summer Camp for 13 - 16 year olds. Space is limited, see here for more details.
