Facilities: The Hornet Baseball Camps are proud to call John Smith Field our home. John Smith field was renovated in 2016 with a brand new playing surface and lights.


Hornet Baseball Camps are designed to teach students solid fundamental baseball skills as well as to raise their level of understanding of the game of baseball. Our purpose is to provide each camper with the instruction and encouragement needed to develop individual skills to a greater level. In addition, we want the camper to be aware that individual skills are best utilized when they are incorporated into a team concept. We will emphasize how individuals work together on a field to form a baseball "team."
