Summer Camps

The Chicago Mudcats Sport and Social Club has been offering Summer Camp to Chicago’s youth since 2001. Our camps not only center around the games of baseball and softball, but other games and sports that allow all participants to have fun and learn in a relaxed environment. As summers can be busy for families, our camps are flexible, with full and half day options that can be booked for a day, a week or the entire summer.

If you are looking for structured development options during the summer months geared toward the more serious or older baseball/softball players please check out our Advanced Player Development Memberships.
