The CCSO would like to take this opportunity to tell you about the Charles County Badges for Baseball camp provided through the Cal Ripken Senior Foundation.

This program will be facilitated by the Charles County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Unit. The program is being offered to youths currently in grades 6 through 8 who reside in Charles County. The program takes place at Regency Furniture Stadium, located at 11765 St Linus Dr, Waldorf, MD 20602. This is a three day event starting Wednesday, June 29th, 2016 and runs until Friday, July 1st, 2016. The program hours are 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  Parents of participants will be responsible for transportation to and from Regency Furniture Stadium. There is no cost associated with the Charles County Badges for Baseball camp and participation is limited to the first 80 students accepted into the program. 

The camp participants will receive top quality baseball instruction from coaches and players presented by the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs.  The campers get plenty of recreational time that includes the Blue Crabs Kids Zone, video game trailer and quick pitch games.  The program incorporates life skills classes taken from the Healthy Choices/Healthy Children curriculum. These programs include a variety of real world life lessons covering topics such as sportsmanship, decision making, conflict resolution, communication skills, teamwork, leadership, nutrition, and self management.

No baseball experience is required to participate.  Your camper is encouraged to bring a baseball glove, wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather (NO CLEATS).  We will have limited number of baseball gloves on hand.  Lunch is provided free of cost each day.  For the safety of all campers parents will not be permitted to be on the grounds during the camp. On Wednesday, June 29th, please arrive between 7:30 and 8:00 for registration.
