WHITING, Ind. - May 24, 2017 - The Northwest Indiana Oilmen have released their Summer Kids Camp schedule for the 2017 season. The Oilmen will offer five camps on June 12, June 19, June 26, July 10 and July 17. The camps are free to all participants.
The day begins with registration from 8 a.m.-9 a.m., with the camp to follow from 9 a.m.-noon. Participants will learn the fundamentals of baseball including hitting and fielding through games, challenges, and drills.
Registration is open for children, ages 5-12. They can attend an unlimited amount of camps. Every child that participates will receive a free ticket to a future Oilmen game.
Oilmen coaches and players will oversee the activities, lending their expertise and experience.
Charisse Martinez, mother of 7-year-old Christian, who participated in the camps last year, plans to sign up her son again this year because of the positive experience he had.
“Although I was nervous about leaving my son for the first time, especially with neither of us knowing anyone there, I was relieved to see the huge smile on my son’s face when I picked him up,” Martinez said. “He had a lot of fun and made new friends. The fact that my son enjoyed it so much last year, made me want to come back. I also want him to learn different techniques and styles from different coaches.”
Space for the camps is limited, so early registration is encouraged.
