The cost for the Hitting Camp is $85 per camper. The Hitting Camp emphasizes techniques of hitting, and teaching devices will be used to help teach proper hitting mechanics.
An All-Day Fundamental Camp will be held daily from June 16 through 19. The All-Day Fundamental Camp is for campers age eight to 14 and will be held daily from 9 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. Cost for the All-Day Fundamental Camp is $160 per camper and includes lunch.
