The Camp Program

Each camp begins with a welcome and hands on involvement by Crabs coaches and players. During the week, Crabs Coach Eric Giacone will direct his squad of instructors — an assistant coach and several players hand-picked from the Crabs roster for their baseball skills and their ability to work well with kids.

What is covered

Crabs instructors will teach your child baseball offensive skills including hitting, bunting, and base running as well as all the defensive positions. Campers will have the opportunity to practice, play and improve skills at the position of their choice.

What campers need to bring

Campers need to bring a sack lunch each day (MVP Campers only), appropriate dress for the weather, baseball glove and any other appropriate sports gear. Please mark all clothing and gear with camper’s name and phone number on the items in case of loss.

MVP Camp is for boys & girls ages 9-14 who want to learn all defensive positions and have a chance to play, learn, and improve at the position of their choice.
