Northwestern University is offering a luxury summer youth baseball experience camp unlike no other camp in the greater Chicago area. This camp is an exceptional opportunity for kids to not only develop their skills by working with the Northwestern Baseball Coaching Staff & Players, but also each participant will gain a greater love for the sport through games and activities. The NU Baseball Coaching Staff has designed this camp in part to develop the skill set of each player attending, create a fun and learning atmosphere for the participants, and use the first class facilities on the campus of Northwestern University. This camp includes, but is not limited to the following activities - instruction in the following areas: (hitting/pitching/infield/outfield/catching/baserunning/bunting/cut-offs & re-lays/rundowns/ & sliding), while also keeping a fun and enjoyable camp atmosphere by providing the following activities: Wildcat Olympics, Wiffleball, Slip N Slide, Games, Guest Speakers, Homerun Derby, Pizza Party on last day. The drills, games, and skill contests make this camp one the kids will remember.

Games will be played to emphasize the techniques learned in daily instruction. The fun activities will be used to increase each individual’s passion for the game of baseball and daily activity. The skills and love for the game developed during these years will serve as the building block for future development in high school and beyond. Players will leave this camp with a heightened sense of love and appreciation for the game and with a greater skill set to help them achieve success at their respective next level.

Proposed Camp Time: Camp will start check-in at 8:45am at Rocky & Berenice Miller Park. Each day camp will end at 4:00pm, and parents are expected to be available to pick their child up as close to that time as possible. If arrangements are needed for a later pickup, the Northwestern Baseball Staff is happy to try and accommodate all requests.
