Camp Highlights

Camper to Staff Ratio - We make every effort to have an excellent counselor to camper ratio. This ensures quality instruction and individual attention.

Gear - Each camper receives a Nike camp tee shirt. Elite Prospect Campers receive a numbered Nike Dri-Fit shirt, Nike Dri-Fit shorts,and an individual locker room name-plate.

Quality Facilities - Carolina Baseball Camps are held at the $26m Bryson Field at Boshamer Stadium located in the heart of campus.

Written Assessment - Campers attending the Elite Prospect Camps will receive a standard written assessment from his particular counselor/coach. Our staff does not "grade" the camper, but critiques the camper on his abilities and tries to make suggestions on how to improve. UNC coaches normally do not complete these evaluations.
