Brewers Baseball Academy to Debut this Summer with 8 Week-long Youth Camps

Today we are proud to announce the inaugural season of the Brewers Baseball Academy presented by Kwik Trip!

The Academy is open to youth (ages 6-14) and includes eight separate week-long baseball/softball camps that will be held in various cities across Wisconsin this summer. A complete schedule of camp locations and dates is listed below. The camps will be conducted under the supervision of Tim Rappé, executive director of the Brewers Baseball Academy.

“Our promise is to create a world class Milwaukee Brewers baseball experience for every camper,” said Rappé. “Regardless of skill level, the camp will profoundly improve each player’s ability to play the game of baseball.”

Each camp runs Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. with instruction provided by experienced youth coaches. During one of the five camp days, campers are transported by bus to Miller Park for a one-of-a-kind experience as they will be treated to a guest appearance from a current Brewers player and have their photo taken. Campers will also receive instruction from Brewers coach John Shelby.

A unique component of the Brewers Baseball Academy is that a video motion analysis of each participant will be performed.  Every camper’s swing will be recorded, analyzed and shared with the player and his/her parents. In addition, all participants will take part in a baseball or softball skills competition. Each week, scores will be posted at Brewers.com/camps and upon completion of the last camp (August 12-16), the top scorers will be invited to the Champions’ Day Finals at Miller Park. Boys and girls will compete separately in appropriate grade groups.

The fee for the week-long camp is $395 per child, which includes 30 hours of exceptional instruction, a complete Brewers uniform, four Brewers game tickets to one of three select games – compliments of Kwik Trip – and a V.I.P. day at Miller Park.

Registration is currently available at Brewers.com/camps. Registrations received prior to March 31 will receive a $25 discount. This discount may not be combined with any other discount. If registering two or more children, each child will receive a $25 discount if booked together.  A limited number of spots are available for each camp location.

As the presenting sponsor of the Brewers Baseball Academy, Kwik Trip will award 120 random participants with $50 gift cards to their store. One lucky camper from each host city will also receive a personalized camp jersey, along with a special presentation during the camp graduation ceremony.

In addition, two registrations per host city will be given away through a promotion at Pick ‘n Save stores throughout the season. For details, visit participating Pick ‘n Save locations.
