“It is designed to provide campers with the next level knowledge of baseball, crafted for those who want a more advanced and technical experience,” said Trash Pandas spokesperson Josh Caray. Lunch is provided. Registration for the instructional camps goes on sale at 9 a.m. on Friday, May 29.
Trash Pandas Day Camp begins next week for kids age 5-12. Two sessions are currently available for registration: June 1-5 and June 8-12.
