"Our goals for each camper are great instruction and great fun. For the youngsters in the Redbird Kids All-Skills Camp, we will teach a solid foundation of baseball through drills and encouragement. Each day will contain teaching and game environments. For the older players in our Future Redbird Advanced Camp, our approach will be to refine skills in order to help each participant reach his potential. Each day campers will get personal instruction, drill work, and game play. Both camps will be beneficial for development and a great way to spend the summer."
