The Prime Choice Caterers will run our lunch program, If you sign up for the weekly plan ($25/week), lunch will consist of either hot dogs or chicken tenders along with a drink and a bag of chips. Lunch will also be available for purchase daily for $6/day.
Please note: The lunch program will not be available for camp sessions of 40 kids or less. We will notify parents prior to the start of the camp session if lunches will not be available.
General Camp: All campers will receive excellent instruction in the fundamentals of the game as well as the opportunity to play in a live game each day. Each camper will receive an official Big Train & BCC Baseball Summer Camp t-shirt that will entitle the camper to free admission to all Big Train home games at Shirley Povich Field during the 2015 regular season.
Advanced Development Camp: Big Train Manager Sal Colangelo has designed these camps for advanced training for young players with above-average skills. On Monday, Big Train players and coaches will lead the campers through a series of drills designed to improve skills and choose teams for the week's showcase games. Each day from Tuesday through Friday, camp will begin with one hour of skills training followed by a 7-inning showcase game on Field #2. Each camper will receive an official Big Train & BCC Baseball Summer Camp t-shirt that will entitle the camper free admission to all Big Train home games at Shirley Povich Field during the 2015 regular season. For an additional $80, the participants in the Advanced Development Player Camps may attend the regular Big Train Camp in the afternoon until 3 p.m.
Pitching Camp: Affordable pitching camps which provide young players with specialized training can be difficult to find. The Big Train pitching camp provides highly specialized skill development at a very affordable price, just $160 per week. During the camp, 25 players will have the opportunity to receive one-on-one training and participate in pitching drills with Big Train college pitchers. Campers will work for two hours each afternoon in the Povich Field outfield and Povich Field bullpens, building the pitching skills to get them to that next level. Note: Pitching Camp will not meet on Wednesdays to prevent the risk of campers straining their arms.
Big Train Celebrity Camp: Over the years, Nationals players that have visited include Gio Gonzalez, Ian Desmond, Anthony Rendon, Denard Span, Wilson Ramos, Ross Detwiler, Roger Bernadina, Chad Cordero, Drew Storen, Livan Hernandez and Taylor Jordan plus Racing President Teddy Roosevelt! Learn from the pros! (Note: Players scheduled to appear are subject to change without notice) Along with special visits and instruction from Nationals Players, campers will get all the benefits of our General Camp including daily instruction and lessons from experienced Big Train coaches and players.
