Baseball Camp Program

For children ages 8-13, this program is designed to provide individualized skill progression, taught by mature experienced coaches who assist each camper in reaching his/her full baseball potential.

We continue to create new opportunities for our campers to engage in sport, have fun with friends, expand their limits, learn about sportsmanship, and experience camp to its fullest. Our primary goal is to help each camper achieve their fullest potential by learning correct techniques from experienced coaches who know how to make the game fun.

Instruction

Summer Trails creates an on field atmosphere that is both fun and educational. Each morning a specific aspect of the game is discussed, demonstrated and small group instructional workshop stations are implemented. Whether you are a baseball novice or an experienced player everyone benefits from breaking down skills to review. Instructional units include perfecting the crow hop, reviewing position play and developing pitching speed and accuracy.

Game Play

Baseball is a game of repetition. At Summer Trails we strive to ensure that players have many attempts at bat each day. Each camper plays two baseball games daily. Additionally, campers participate in batting cages and batting tee practice to maximize their at bat opportunities. Our baseball games include an aspect of healthy competition balanced with good old fashioned fun including Home Run Derby and Bat Control tournaments.

Professional Visitors

Retired and Current Baseball Players as well as Coaches and Managers visit Summer Trails throughout the summer and lead discussions, demonstrations, interactive exhibitions, and autograph sessions.
