    New to baseball

    July 19, 2017: Our son is new to baseball, and was worried he wouldn't be able to keep up with the other kids. THe coaches were extremely encouraging and enthusiastic, while holding the kids to high standards. My son had a wonderful experience, learned a lot, and signed up for an extra week because he enjoyed the first week so much. Thank you!

    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!!!"
