Trip Details

Attend our unique 7 day/6 night baseball trip to the small seaside town of Boca Chica Dominican Republic. You will be put on a team with 15 players. Teams are coached by NCAA Division 1 college coaches alongside Dominican coaches. Camp is open to any and all applicants within the age category. Players immerse themselves in baseball and the local Dominican culture. Participants practice and play games against Dominicans. In addition to baseball, time is set aside to enjoy the beautiful Caribbean beach located with walking distance where players may swim in the turquoise water or relax on the beach.

A day trip may consist of visiting Santo Domingo to tour the historic Colonial Zone, attending a professional baseball game or taking a catamaran to visit a government protected nature reserve.

Baseball is used to bridge a cultural gap. Teens will gain valuable skills and confidence by visiting an environment very different than they are used to. Players are exposed to the spirited style of the Dominican players. And have an opportunity to spend the week with a professional coach both on and off the field where they will hear tips and insight into the college recruiting process. We have numerous former players that have gone on to college and professional baseball.

FAQs

Do I need a passport and how do I get one?

This is one of the most important items that must be considered ahead of time. Yes, you must have a passport. It can take up to two months to get your passport application processed. For more information on getting a passport the Department of State.

Is it safe in the Dominican Republic?

Yes. The Dominican Republic has recently become a popular tourist destination for Americans. Dominicans are welcoming people and especially so with baseball players. We will stay together as a group and players will have a buddy system.

What if someone gets hurt or sick?
We don’t anticipate any injuries; however in the unlikely event of an accident during a game, we will have a staff member present with Red Cross first aid certification during all baseball games. We have an emergency plan with a state of the art Health Care provider Hospiten . We have a nurse on staff at our hotel.
