Pippins Expand Camp Offerings for 2020, Lower Prices

YAKIMA, Wash. — The Yakima Valley Pippins will host five baseball skills camps at The Orchard next summer, a large expansion from past years, and registration fees are being reduced.

Previously, the team hosted one three-day camp in early July. In 2020, the team will hold two three-day all-skills camps — the first slated for July 7-9, and the second scheduled for Aug. 4-6. Cost is $99 per camper, down from $119 the past two years.

New in 2020 is a two-day hitting camp scheduled for June 23-24, and two, one-day all-skills camps set for June 29 and July 18.

The two-day camp costs $79 per camper, and the one-day camps cost $49 per camper.

Early-bird pricing discounts are in effect for registrations before Dec. 31: savings of $10 per camper for the two-day and three-day camps and $5 savings on registration for the one-day camp. Participants who register for three or more camps also receive a 15 percent discount.

Camps are open to boys and girls, ages 7-18. The June 29 one-day camp is specially targeted for high schools players, ages 14-18.

Led by camp director Kyle Krustangel, Pippins coaches and players will provide instruction. No previous baseball experience is necessary; camps are open to participants of all skill levels.

Each camp will run from 9 a.m. to noon.
