Applications and more information about the camps can be obtained by calling Bearcats head coach Scott Miller at 400-3866. Miller and coach Kevin Bearden are camp directors.

Campers should bring their own gloves, bats, cleats and other equipment. Checks should be made payable to the Bearcat Dugout Club.

Miller says the goal of the camp is to teach the youngsters the fundamentals of the game and give them a chance to meet current Bearcat players and coaches, and give them a sense of Bearcat pride.

“Campers are always very enthusiastic and eager to learn,” the Bearcats head coach. “It is a positive experience for them and us. We enjoy it every year.”
