The objective is to provide detailed instuction on the fundamentals of the game of baseball by teaching proper mechanics in a safe and positive atmosphere.

Campers review hitting, pitching and catching, plus there is a general skills school which covers hitting, pitching, infield and outfield.

Cost for one day is $60 and if parents register for both days, the cost is only $100.

Camp directors are Dan Griesbaum and Matt Reno.
