THE UNIQUE PHILLIES EXPERIENCE
The Phillies Baseball Academy is far more than just a week at camp–it is a place where new skills are developed and old ones perfected. Our commitment to creating the most exciting and informative baseball experience is reflected in every aspect of our camp. And only Phillies Baseball Academy offers campers a behind-the-scenes tour and the opportunity to meet a Phillies player and coach.
During each week, campers feel like real “Major Leaguers” as they take the field in their very own official Phillies Baseball Academy uniform and learn from baseball’s best. This unique, action-packed camp features top-notch instruction and demonstrations from our experienced Phillies Baseball Academy coaching staff, as well as fundamental station work, skills contests, scrimmages and game action.
Each one-week camp takes place at one of 9 great locations throughout the summer. Camp runs Monday through Friday from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM. “Extra Innings,” our extended day training program, allows campers to arrive as early as 8:00 AM and stay as late as 4:30 PM.
