Enjoy a weekend get away with just you and your son, learning the greatest game of all!

The Citadel Baseball staff will teach the fundamental skills to your son that he needs in order to be successful in the game of baseball. This weekend allows each father a chance to not only be your son's coach, but also his best friend, roommate, and teammate! We hope to make this a weekend to remember; fathers and sons playing catch; competing with and against each other; a night of minor league baseball; and best of all…one weekend of friendship with no interuptions!

The Citadel will provide a camp T-shirt to all involved in the camp.
