Cubs Baseball Summer Camps

"My son loves this camp. He has counted down the days since the beginning of his baseball season back in March until he can go to camp and play ball all day. He was so excited and loved the experience that he had his whole team sign a baseball that he keeps in his room as a prized possession!"

Camp Curriculum

We’re doing more than just teaching kids to play baseball. Our coaches motivate campers through our reward points system, emphasizing leadership and teamwork, rather than just being the “best” player on a team. By providing campers with choices throughout the day, they will determine the position or skill in which they’d like to see improvement, feeling empowered to better themselves how they’d like to do so. Expect your camper to be tired out at the end of each day, and excited to head back to camp the next day


Young athletes perform best when they feel confident and comfortable. For that reason, we divide our camp into five age-appropriate levels. Each level teaches a unique set of skills and encourages its own degree of competition. This also ensures that ballplayers get a new Cubs Baseball Summer Camps experience each year!

For our youngest ballplayers, our focus is to create an enjoyable experience centered around the fundamentals of the game. Using competitions and fun-filled exercises, we aim to engage and excite them while also educating them on the wonderful game of baseball.

As ballplayers progress beyond the beginner level, we look to reinforce the fundamentals while increasing the pace of drills. Our curriculum aims to use baseball to teach lifelong lessons that will translate to any sport or hobby your child decides to pursue in life.

As our ballplayers transition to “player-pitch,” our curriculum focuses on proper pitching mechanics, early pitch recognition and good mechanics in the batter’s box to see the pitch out.

For our more mature ballplayers, we look to speed up the game. We increase the pace of play with unique, modified versions of the game – making it more exciting to keep ballplayers engaged from the first pitch to last pitch.

As our oldest ballplayers progress through the game, our coaching staff works to connect your child’s passions with their desire to improve specific areas of their game or aspirations to master the intricacies of a new position on the field.


This year we are introducing skill levels to help us create a better experience for campers to feel challenged and develop their skills! This will help ensure all ballplayers are having fun and enjoying the level of baseball they are playing.

The beginner level is for ballplayers who have little to no experience with the sport. If ballplayers recently began playing within the last year and are still developing their skills, this would be the perfect level for them! As long as they share the love of the game, our coaches will be able to focus on the fundamentals and develop their basic skills.

Next, the intermediate level is for ballplayers who have the fundamentals down and need additional help taking their game to the next level. This curriculum will be slightly faster paced and will focus on developing additional skillsets that will help them take the next step in improving their skills and baseball IQ.

Finally, the advanced level is for ballplayers who have participated in Travel Ball or have been playing the sport for several years. They understand what skills they would like to develop, and the curriculum will focus on helping them develop those specific skills. It will be fast-paced and focused more on gameplay scenarios.
