The Milwaukee Brewers have announced the dates and details for this summer’s “Brewers Baseball Academy presented by Kwik Trip”, which includes a stop in Sheboygan.
The Academy, now in its sixth season, is open to kids (ages 6-14) and includes 15 separate week-long baseball/softball camps that will be held in various cities across Wisconsin this summer.
The Sheboygan camp will take place August 20-24 at Wildwood Baseball Park, home of the Sheboygan A's.
The camps will be conducted under the supervision of Tim Rappé, Executive Director of the Brewers Baseball Academy.
“Our mission is to create a world-class training environment wrapped in an unforgettable Brewers experience,” said Rappé. “Last year, over 1,000 participants took part in the camps and I am looking forward to another great summer.”
Each camp runs Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. with instruction provided by experienced coaches. During one day of the five camp days, campers are transported by bus to Miller Park for a one-of-a-kind experience as they are treated to a guest appearance from a current Brewers player. In addition, campers also receive instruction from a Brewers coach and have the opportunity to take their photo with them.
All participants take part in baseball/softball skills competitions in appropriate age groups. Upon completion of the last camp, the top scorers are invited to the Champions Day Finals at Miller Park.
The fee for the weeklong camp is $395 per child, which includes 30 hours of exceptional instruction, a complete MLB-quality Brewers uniform, four Brewers game tickets to one of three select games and a V.I.P. day at Miller Park.
Registration is currently available at Brewers.com/camps. Registrations received prior to March 1 will receive a $25 discount.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with the Brewers to bring this camp to Sheboygan," said A's Vice President C.J. Skelton. "As we continue to look for ways to expand the usage of Wildwood Park, this is just another event we can offer the youth of our community. Our team has been working hard behind the scenes to make this happen, and we look forward to a successful event."
