The Museum & Learning Center is a hotbed of summer camp fun and learning!
Each year, our baseball and softball camps for boys and girls ages on the nearby Montclair State playing fields have proven to be fun-filled weeks of instruction and activities under the supervision of top-notch instructors.
Each camper will receive personalized instruction from the coaching staff. Through specialized stations and game competition, the camps focus on fun and fundamentals – while providing instruction in proper hitting, bunting, pitching, baserunning, fielding, position play and more. For optimal learning, campers will be split into beginning and advanced groups based on skill level. Campers are provided refreshments and lunch each day, and will also receive a camp certificate and t-shirt for attending.
The Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center’s baseball and softball camps are generously supported by the Borman Family Foundation.
