Skill and Drill Segment 
The Advanced Kids Camp is designed to build upon the fundamentals learned from the Stanford Baseball School and Games Camp. This camp is an all-day, more detailed experience that is designed to provide campers with the next level knowledge of baseball. This camp is crafted for those who want a more advanced and technical baseball experience. In addition to repetition, players will be exposed to more detailed instruction during station and drill work. 

Players will be grouped by age, ability and prior baseball experience. The Skill and Drill Circuit emphasis will be on fundamental progression and skill development. Daily stations will include outfield play, infield play, pitching, base-running, throwing development, hitting instruction, and much more. Our hitting instruction and drills take place in both Stanford’s batting cage facility and on the main diamond. The astro-turfed cages are covered so campers are out of the direct sun light.

Games Segment
The games segment of the camp is “coach pitch” for an emphasis on contact and action. This low-pressure atmosphere allows for many offensive and defensive opportunities in order to provide a great learning experience. The Stanford coaches believe that the games create a great opportunity to learn and develop at game speed. It is their feeling that in this atmosphere kids can learn and develop best. While improvement takes hard work and focus there is still a need to learn, relax and play instinctively. Games will be played on Sunken Diamond, or the adjoining astro-turf and grass fields. 

Check-In
Camp begins at 9am and ends at 4pm each day of camp. Campers will be required to check-in daily at the main entrance to Stanford Baseball’s Sunken Diamond. Check-in will be open starting at 8am every day of camp.

Extended Care
We understand that campers may not be able to be picked up at 4pm each day following camp.  Extended Care will be open from 4pm-6pm each day of camp and the cost is $20 per day.   As camp gets closer you will receive instructions on how to schedule and pay for extended care in advance.  You can also arrange and pay for extended care during check-in each day of camp.

Equipment
Each camper must bring his/her own baseball equipment. Players should bring a glove, bat, shoes, hat, helmet, and wear suitable baseball attire (either baseball pants or sweats/long pants). There will be a limited supply of bats and helmets that can be provided upon request. Stanford Baseball camps request each camper place their name and phone number on all equipment and items; including shoes, hats, and clothing. 

Medical Staff/Insurance
There will be a certified athletic trainer at Sunken Diamond at all times to attend to care for minor injuries and illness. If a camper gets sick or injured while at camp, they will assess the situation and make the decision of what needs to be done. Parents or guardians will be contacted immediately if there is a serious injury or if a camper needs to leave camp early for a medical reason. Please make a notation on the medical portion of your registration if there is any medical condition we should be aware of in advance of the camper’s attendance at camp. Our athletic trainer will be available for questions on the first day of each camp and throughout the week.

Insurance information provided on the Medical Waiver Form MUST be accurate. All campers must have their own medical insurance. 

Camp Medical Wavier Form
Each camper must have a completed and signed Medical Wavier Form in order to attend camp. If you register for camp online, the Medical Wavier Form can be completed online as well. If you are mailing in a registration form, you will receive a printable version of the Medical Wavier Form when you receive your registration confirmation email.  

Parking Information
On the first day of camp, you can pick up a special parking pass (to be placed on your dashboard) that will allow you to park in the C sticker parking lot outside of Sunken Diamond from 8:30am-9am and again from 3:30pm-4:30pm each day of camp. Each parking pass is good for that entire week of camp. 

Lunch
Lunch is not included in the purchase of Stanford Baseball camp. If you would like to purchase lunch at camp, this can be done the week leading up to camp or at check-in the day of camp. As camp gets closer, you will receive an email with specific instructions on how to arrange for and pay lunch in advance.

Snack Shack
Each day of camp there will be a snack shack open where campers can purchase a variety of snacks and drinks throughout the day. A “bank” can be set-up for so that campers do not have to worry about having cash with them. This can be done the week leading up to camp or at check-in each day of camp. As camp gets closer, you will receive an email with specific instructions on how to arrange for and pay a “bank” in advance. Please Note: If a camper has a balance due at the end of camp on the last, it is the campers’ responsibility to go to the snack shack and cash out before leaving camp.

Please contact the Stanford Baseball Office at baseballoffice@stanford.edu to request a cancellation. Refunds are available until 5pm the Friday before camp. There is a $75 cancellation fee.
