Baseball Camps: Batter Up!


Baseball camps just like most sports camp programs offer youth and teens a chance to learn more about the game as well as build greater self esteem. Many baseball camp programs are residential, and one week sessions are common. Baseball day camp and half day camp programs are also available. Building on the skill level of the player, these camps tend to immerse youngsters and teens into the sport. Training drills along with learning baseball fundamentals are often scheduled into each camp day's sessions. A typical day at baseball camp (overnight or day) may include some of the following:

  • Team drills
  • Separate position drills for positions such as pitcher and catcher
  • Batting practice
  • Infield and outfield training
  • Offensive and defensive training
