For those of you new to a Humnbird Summer, our camp design and format is different than most.
Our morning begins with a wide assortment of drills, skills, and competitions designed not only to teach the game, but involve players in the learning of baseball skill. Our staff will guide players in high energy activities designed to challenge players of all ability levels. This, in itself could serve as our camp, but at Humnbirds we go a step beyond.
After the first day’s morning activities we hold our annual weekly draft where we divide the entire camp into even teams, name the teams and begin what has developed into a summer camp tradition, our Weekly Camp Championship Tournament. This tournament (played after lunch) is in round robin format with all teams (regardless of record) qualifying for the Friday playoffs. We crown a weekly champ along with a consolation game winner. It is without question an exciting fun filled set of games with the kids given basic rules for a fair batting order and how to fairly let all players play a different position if they choose.
Where can you go to watch a game where the kids are running the team? Of course our counselors are there to make sure our guidelines on fairness are followed along with pitching and umpiring the games.
A breath of fresh air from the "get to the next level" travel team nightmare! Remember when it was a game? This experience is for any skill level and ANY skill level will improve! Why? Because they are actually enjoying themselves!!
If for ANY REASON you or your child is not happy with the experience, we will give you a FULL REFUND with a smile and NO QUESTIONS ASKED!
