"The only thing better than watching my son improve so much was seeing how happy he was every day when I picked him up from Brewers Camp. Without a doubt, one of the best decisions my wife and I made. We will definitely be back in 2017. Go Brewers!" — Happy Dad in New Berlin
After four seasons, the Brewers Baseball Academy presented by Kwik Trip is widely regarded as one of the finest instructional camps in America. So, if you're looking for a great place to learn baseball or softball, make new friends and have a spectacular Brewers experience...we have a uniform waiting for you.
Almost all 2016 camps sold out and we will not be increasing capacity. Hope you can join us.
The Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Academy caters to kids at every level of play. Whether a beginner or a budding pro, each player gets a world-class experience on and off the diamond.
The magic of a great camp comes from the right mixture of fun, competition, learning and camaraderie. On Monday when you meet the camp staff, you will see how our knowledge of and passion for the game are evident in how we approach each activity. We know the game but also understand that the program needs to be a blend of competition and fun. Your child WILL be a better player on Friday than he or she was on Monday through a mixed balance of competition, fun, relationship building and baseball instruction.
At each Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Academy session we use a progressive system of hitting, throwing and fielding. Depending on how well the groups achieve the various steps in our teaching program, we advance the curriculum to match their progress. In addition, we spend time on position-specific skills like pitching, catching, middle infield play, fast pitch pitching and slap hitting.
Drills are tailored to the experience level of the various age groups to create the best learning environment for everyone.
While children at camp are separated by age, not all players of the same age have equal ability. For safety reasons and because it facilitates the best learning environment, players are grouped by age and ability. These "teams" stay together throughout the week with the same coach. There is crossover with instructors but we have found the bonds created between teammates and their primary coach is one of the truly special dynamics at camp.
At our instructors' discretion, tennis balls, whiffle balls and safety balls are used liberally at camp. We also use regulation baseballs and softballs, however fear-free confidence is a critical foundation for fun and learning on the diamond.

We understand travel ballplayers' schedules are hectic in the summer. Nearly 45% of 2016 campers played on "Select" teams. The exceptional experience your player will have at this camp makes it worth the effort to fit it into your schedule. We protect your child's arm if they are scheduled to pitch that night, or if they have a tournament coming up we can adjust their workload accordingly. Give us a week and your child will improve, no matter their current level of play.
During our trip to Miller Park, a Brewers coach will meet us and conduct a behind-the-scenes tour. Athletes will be treated to an insider's perspective seldom available to the general public. And you never know what surprises pop up on this special day.
As parents, you know when you find a great teacher you look for ways to maximize your child's interaction with that person. They can be game changers in our kids' lives. It's much the same with great youth sports coaches.
That's why we carefully select, screen, and train our instructors, and we believe this careful preparation pays great dividends. The bottom line is that our instructors are as good as they come, and your child will see that from the very start.
Every instructor will have passed a background check.
Much of what happens in the baseball/softball swing happens too fast to be tracked by the human eye. If you would like your athlete's swing recorded and personally analyzed featuring a comparison to Ryan Braun, please check the appropriate box on the registration form. There will be a $25 additional fee for this service.
For the fifth year, the camp price will remain at $395. This fee gets 30 hours of terrific instruction, four Brewers game tickets, a Major League quality Brewers uniform, a V.I.P. day at the ballpark, meeting a current Brewers player, getting instruction from a Brewers coach and unforgettable friendships and memories all for about what some of us pay a babysitter on an hourly basis ($13.17).
Read below and see how you might be able to reduce the price.
The investment is $395. You may pay in full on-line. Before May 1, 2017 you may reserve your spot with a refundable $175 deposit. Your credit card will automatically be charged the balance due on May 1, 2017.

You may cancel 45 days prior to the first day of camp and receive a full refund. Cancellations between 45 days and 14 days prior to the first day of camp will be subject to a $75 processing fee. No refunds will be given for cancellations made less than 14 days prior to the first day of your camp.
Camps begin at 9 a.m. and conclude at 3 p.m. However, to accommodate parents' schedules, you may drop off your camper as early as 8 a.m. and/or pick him/her up as late as 5 p.m. An additional $5.00 will be charged for each early or late "Extra Inning." Just inform the camp Field Director on Monday morning.
Campers should bring their own lunch and drinks. Please be sure to affix your player's name to these items. There will not be refrigeration so pack accordingly.
In the event of inclement weather, outdoor camp activities are moved indoors. Our curriculum has provisions for excellent indoor activities and instruction. We reserve the right to cancel camp days for weather-related reasons and no refunds will be given. Every effort will be made to complete instruction. To date, we have never cancelled a camp day.
Once you have registered we will communicate additional important camp information via e-mail. Please enter your e-mail address accurately on the registration form. Also, be sure you are entering the parent or guardian e-mail address, NOT the camper's.
We will assist you in making car pool arrangements. If interested, check the "Car Pool" box on the registration form. Prior to camp, parents who check the "Car Pool" box will be connected with others who are interested in this convenience.
Please note: Specific Brewers players and coaches to appear will be selected by the Brewers and may not be represented in these photos.
During one of the five camp days, campers are transported by bus to Miller Park for a day we are sure they will never forget. Imagine sitting in the dugout just hours before Ryan Braun or Orlando Arcia walks out of the tunnel. How about toeing the bullpen rubber shortly before Jimmy Nelson takes the mound? The highlight of the day includes campers having their picture taken in the dugout with a current Brewers player. Buses depart Miller Park at approximately 2:00pm and return participants to their camp location.
With an option to attend one of three Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Academy Reunion games
To commemorate your week at the Milwaukee Brewers Baseball Academy
Kids love to compete so we give them an opportunity to display their skills while using the very techniques we teach at camp. Every camper participates in a baseball or softball skills competition. Each week, scores are posted on the website and after the last camp, the top scorers are invited to the Champions' Day Finals at Miller Park. Boys and girls compete separately in appropriate grade groups.
If they are going to train like a Major Leaguer, campers should dress like one. Jersey color changes each year.
Those players who have attended camp previously will receive a unique commemorative patch to proudly display on his/her new uniform.
