Camp Description

 

Our camp is modeled after our own very successful Messiah Softball program. We have been providing a quality camp learning experience for over 25 years.

This camp is an ID camp for Messiah College Softball.   You must play on a travel team at a high elite level to attend.    Our camp is run like a college program and will put you thru the rigors of college softball as well as taking time to provide fundamental skill instruction in a highly elite softball atmosphere. 

Our camp will give you a two day college elite level experience as you also get to stay in our dorms,  work with our coaching staff and players and experience college softball for two days with our program. 
******(Next summer 2021 we will go back to overnight camp - for this year in 2020 we will have the limited number of people on the single day camps).
