We Have Three Boys And Will Definitely Be Returning!

"My child was one of the younger kids and we were SO impressed with the way the instructors encouraged them and also encouraged the older kids to show good sportsmanship toward the younger ones. The camp was WONDERFUL. We are locals but I can't imagine sending my son to any other big campus camp that would measure up to this one! We have three young boys and will definitely be returning customers!!!"

A Wonderful Camp Experience

Quality Individual Instruction

"I was impressed that the coaches worked with us individually. At other camps it was almost always as a group. They covered everything about baseball. I enjoyed the camp very much and enjoyed some of the actual players speaking and teaching us."
