Mason High School will be one of five Greater Cincinnati locations where the Cincinnati Reds will offer baseball and softball camps this summer.
Camps are being offered for the first time at Harrison High School and the soon-to-open Procter and Gamble Cincinnati MLB Urban Youth Academy in Roselawn.
Thirty hours of instruction are offered during the week-long camps are open to boys and girls of all ability levels between the ages of 6-14. Camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with provisions for early arrival and late pick-up for an extra fee.
“Our promise is to create a world class Reds baseball experience for all campers,’’ said Tim Rappe, executive director of the camps.
“It doesn’t matter if your athlete is six and picking up a bat for the first time or 14 and is the best shortstop on the local top traveling team. This camp will profoundly improve each player’s ability to play all facets of the game.”
Campers will receive instruction from a current Reds coach and a guest appearance by a player. The week includes a day trip to Great American Ball Park, a full Reds uniform, four tickets to a Reds game, and a skills competition.
Cost is $395 per camper with a $25 discount when two or more children sign up together.
