Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
Wants to do overnight next time!
July 25, 2018: After the first day he was so excited to go back. He became more confident after each day and wished he was part of the overnight group. The following weeks he wanted to play catch, hit and do anything and everything baseball. I was looking at a completely different child when it came to playing baseball and we can't wait until next year until he can go back.
— Jennifer B. Parent
He had a wonderful time!
July 19, 2018: Overall my son had a wonderful time. He enjoyed all 3 days and wanted more. He would come home and show me the things he learned during the day (how to filed ball in infield vs outfield. How to pitch. These were just a few.
— Rob S. Parent
The coaches were amazing!
July 19, 2018: This is Aidan's second year doing the Nike camp at Regis. The coaches, especially Nick Childs, do a great job of teaching the kids, having a positive attitude and running the camp very smoothly. We will be attending more camps in the future.
— Jenna R. Parent
Lots of fun!
July 16, 2018: Oliver had fun and said he improved his hitting and outfielding skills.
— Nancy D. Parent
Overnight camp was great!
July 13, 2018: Meeting friends and parties in the dorms. My favorite thing in learning was learning how to bat better and I learned a lot about diving plays!
— David E. Parent
July 12, 2018: This was my son's first sleepover camp and we were both nervous, but he quickly found the staff to be really fun and they did a great job situating the rooms so he was close by his friends in the dorm. He said the baseball part was great, but I think he liked the social part more than the sports, which was just fine with me! We will definitely be back next summer, and are looking at golf and other sports as well.
— Michele K. Parent
Lots of great drills!

— Wendy F. Parent
He loved it so much
July 12, 2018: Jackson is newer to baseball but loves the game and aiming high this next year to grow in his skills and catch up to the better ball players in his age group. Camp gave him a ton of confidence in the areas that before he felt were subpar. He came home exhausted and smiling everyday and excited to come back the next day. As we were leaving graduation he already announced he’s coming back next year!
— Elisa D. Parent
July 12, 2018: Great away from home experience. Counselors/coaches were top notch.

Best experience of the summer
July 19, 2017: Our son has deemed the 4 days at baseball camp the best experience of his summer!! He thoroughly enjoyed everything about the camp - from working on hitting, pitching and base running to eating in the dining hall. And he even got instruction on playing catcher, which none of his little league teams ever have time to work on. He absolutely loved it and will be back for sure! Please, please, please keep this as an all-day/overnight camp. A 1/2 day camp option doesn't work for working families and the overnight experience is extremely valuable for the campers too. There are so few baseball camp options in the Denver area too, so you definitely are filling a niche. We just wish it was longer. A full week of baseball camp would be absolutely amazing.
— Lisa O. Parent
July 18, 2017: My best experience at camp was the baseball skills.
— Karla T. Parent
Glad to have it back
July 17, 2017: We were SO glad to have the camp back at Regis this year! (Pueblo is too far for us to drive). My son really liked the new coaching staff, and REALLY appreciated the organized evening activities. (In previous years, he said this camp had too much free time at night, and some of the kids got in trouble because they were bored and running around doing things they weren't supposed to do.) Of his 3 times attending this camp, he said this year was the BEST! My son loves this camp, has invited different friends as roommates, and asks for this experience as his birthday present every year. He cannot WAIT for next year! (Please have it at Regis again :)
— Wendy G. Parent
Good balance between learning and playing
July 15, 2017: I liked the skills in the morning and then playing games in the afternoon. It was a good balance between learning and playing.
— Kirk S. Parent
learning new skills
July 15, 2017: Learning how to funnel a ground ball smoothly and dorm rooms
— Debbie G. Parent
July 14, 2017: Our son had a great time! When I went to pick him up on the final day he asked if we could stay and play more baseball because he was having so much fun.
— Jenna R. Parent
July 14, 2017: Great drills and skill building
— Heather B. Parent
July 14, 2017: Confidence was built up by hitting some singers, and Ty really enjoyed the scrimmages. Dorm life experience was fun too. Perhaps a bit more free time to relax
— Kerri & Steve J. Parents
My son used the tools he learned
"Very good experience. My son learned a lot and had fun doing it. He had a game the following day and used the tools he learned."
My son is excited to teach his teammates some of the things he learned
"My son loved baseball camp. The coaches were great and he met a lot of new friends. He is excited to teach his teammates some of the things he learned next season."
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!!!"
Better Appreciation for the Game
"They helped my son to appreciate the game of baseball on and off the field. I would highly recommend this camp to other ball players. I look forward to my son attending the camp next year with his little brother."
Genuine, Knowledgeable Coaches
"My coach surpassed my expectations as a coach and as a person. He is very genuine and knowledgeable about the sport of baseball."
— Overnight Camper
NIKE Baseball Camp is Awesome!
"I really loved this camp. It was awesome. I made friends, had lots of fun, and learned so much. My high school coach tells me that my game has improved tremendously. Thank you all so much."
— Day Camper
Quality Individual Attention
"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 and even introduced me to some new strength training exercises. I enjoyed the camp very much."
— Overnight Camper
This was my son's second year in the camp and it has been a tremendous experience for him both years! I would highly recommend this camp to any parent looking to foster a love of the game in their child.
