This five-day, four-night experience allows campers in rising fourth grade and above to live like a Cubs player while furthering their skills and building lifelong friendships in our immersive program. With world-class instruction, top-notch accommodations and the opportunity to attend the July 12 Cubs-Pirates game at Wrigley Field, this is an opportunity your ballplayer will not want to miss!

From the moment your camper arrives, our staff will simulate a Major League experience. Your camper's belongings will be taken to their room where their official Cubs camp uniform will be hanging up just like in the big leagues. We welcome and find the positives in the nervous energy that comes along with this developmental milestone - one of their first experiences away from home - just as the big leaguers do when they step onto the field in front of thousands of fans.
Sporting the Cubs emblem on their chest, campers will then head to the fields to find out which Minor League team (age-appropriate) they have just become a part of and what teammates they'll be competing alongside during this experience of a lifetime.
Our talented coaches are dedicated to merging their passion for the sport with a desire to deliver unique and fundamentally focused instruction for your ballplayer. As the week progresses, our small-group instruction allows for the curriculum to build upon itself and become more personalized.
To keep our ballplayers excited and engaged in the next play, our coaches implement modified games to speed up the time between pitches and put your ballplayers in fast-paced situations to amplify their skills and stimulate their baseball minds. Full nine-inning games of baseball are always the cherry on top of each day, allowing each ballplayer to lace up his or her cleats and translate the skills acquired from drills and modified games to a traditional, live game setting.
The long week of baseball inevitably brings the natural highs and lows of the game to light. Our coaches recognize this and use the game of baseball as a platform to teach life skills. In addition to celebrating home runs and diving plays, our coaches use each strikeout and loss as an opportunity to teach ballplayers how to bounce back and become resilient. Throughout the camp week, our Cubs scoreboard system also will reward individual leadership and team efforts, promoting growth both on and off the field.
