Procedure To Enroll
Fill out the Online
Enrollment Application Form or call 1-800-993-CAMP and we
will immediately send you an application form for the Sho-Me Baseball Camp . Be sure to answer all
questions and medical information. Send in the application along with the $250 non-refundable deposit per session. (If you enroll using the online form, follow the directions
given on the form). Once we receive your deposit and application, we
will send you a confirmation letter, a medical history form, a transportation
form, and further reporting instructions. You will then be confirmed.
Certain weeks are sellouts; therefore, you should try to make your plans
well in advance. The order in which applications are received determines
the order of acceptance and position on the waiting list. Check-in is
Sunday 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. and check-out is Friday at 12:00 p.m.
If you wish, our camp
van will meet you in Springfield, Missouri at the Springfield/Branson
Regional Airport or bus terminal. We would appreciate plane and bus
arrivals between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. as it is a 100 mile round
trip from the camp. Boys coming to camp by commercial transportation
into Springfield will be picked up in our Sho-Me van for a $25 charge
each way. All tickets for return trips are to be turned in to the camp
office. We will see that the camper and his luggage are on board the
correct transportation for the return trip home. Additional information
will be sent after we receive the application.
If a camper needs to arrive
a day early because of airplane fares, or stay a day longer, there is
a $100 per day charge, (includes meals).
Separate Age Groups
The age groups are 8-10,
11-12, 13-14, 15-16 (Advanced Camps) and 15-18 (Exposure Camp). Campers will generally play
in their own age groups. We reserve the right to move a camper up or
down according to his ability level.
Ages 12 and Under
We at the Sho-Me Baseball Camps take great pride and special interest in our young campers 12 and under
by teaching them the proper fundamentals and techniques with the primary
focus on learning the game while having fun. Therefore, the 12 and under
groups will be carefully supervised and receive extra personalized attention.

The Sho-Me youth baseball camps have coaches,
counselors and supervisors who provide 24 hour security at the camp.
The coaches, counselors and supervisors live on the premises and in
the dorms with the campers.
Health and Insurance
A camp health form must
be signed by both the camper's doctor and parent. This form will be
sent upon receipt of an enrollment form together with the required deposit.
Each student is provided with secondary accident insurance while attending
the camp which is included in the tuition of all campers. A camper's
family health plan or insurance provides the primary coverage.
The campers are lodged
according to their age groups in air conditioned dormitories. From past
experience we know how important it is for the campers after a hard
workout to be able to relax and cool off in an air conditioned room.
This provides for great comfort and good morale.
Campers are provided three
nutritious, well-balanced, all-you-can-eat meals a day. Various meats,
fresh fruits and vegetables, desserts and milk are served at every meal.
Only the highest quality products are used.
All spending money should
be turned into the camp office at the time of registration. A withdrawal
account card will be kept on each camper. Campers may charge items at
the Pro Shop against their account, and also may withdraw cash for the
vending machines, laundry, or pizza. Most campers will find $50-$75
per week sufficient spending money unless they desire to purchase more
expensive equipment from the Pro Shop.
Major League Instruction
Instructors at the camps
have wide baseball experience which includes coaching or playing at
the Major League, Minor League, or collegiate level. All campers receive excellent training in any of the baseball summer camps.
Campers will play in games during the week.
The campers will play different positions besides their normal position.
This is a great opportunity for the campers to learn new positions during
