Overview

The Washington University Lil’ Bears Camp is about baseball, but no sport is enjoyable without it being fun and safe! Our college coaches will instruct your child on the basics of baseball, showing them how to field, throw, hit, bunt, and run the bases with the utmost of care. We will ensure your kids experience through drills that are both fun and instructive. Players will be grouped according to their approximate age and skill level.

If your child needs extra time in the morning and/or afternoon, for a small fee, members of our staff will be available to give your child extra coaching time.

Schedule

MORNINGS Mornings are the learning portions of the camp, and we will work with your child on proper fundamentals in two areas of baseball per day — whether it be hitting, fielding, throwing, baserunning, bunting, or baseball etiquette. The “lessons of the day” will focus on sportsmanship, team play, the “art of hustle”, setting and achieving realistic goals, and the importance of being a good student.
LUNCH Lunch at noon is sponsored by Penn Station Subs and is included in the cost of registration. You are also welcome to pack a home-prepared lunch if your child has dietary restrictions or preferences.
AFTERNOONS Afternoons are all about games. We’ll play pickle, run the bases, tee ball, wiffle ball, and many other baseball-related games that are sure to make the sport more fun for your child.
