2017 Summer Camp – First Swing: Chevy Chase

Weekly Camps: June 26-30 and July 17-21

9:00 – 12:00 noon – Monday to Friday



Our newest program, the First Swing Summer Camps are everything you love about Home Run Baseball Camp in a smaller, more local environment for our players age 4-6. With a motivated coed staff, this camp was offered by popular demand for parents of younger campers who feel they would benefit from a smaller, more intimate environment. This summer, our third summer of First Swing, we will hold a half-day summer camp at the Chevy Chase Rec Center for only two special weeks – June 26-30 and July 17-21.   Both beginners and experienced ball players are welcome and will be challenged, encouraged and instructed.

Campers can expect a safe, fun and instructive environment where our staff, comprised mostly of camp alums, make sure every player age 4 to 6 gets at least 100 swings in batting practice per day. We want every player working on volume repetition- which simply means teach the skill then get round after round of ground balls, fly balls or batting practice.

In a typical day, campers can expect a minimum of 75 to 100 ground balls and fly balls. Most camps over teach and under volume. Our approach takes more coaches and equipment, but we feel it’s the best way.
