Apply NOW To Attend Camp!
|June 1, 2020 |
CLICK HERE TO APPLY TO ATTEND OUR 2020 CAMP PROGRAM!
We are SOO excited to announce our 2020 Camp Application is LIVE for our reinvented summer camp program! We are beyond pumped to be facilitating a safe, intimate and highly innovative summer camp program for our community during this challenging time!
While in the past anyone could register for camp, to comply with the CDC safety recommendations and guidelines from San Mateo County Health, we have moved to an application process. Because our camp sessions are longer than normal (3 weeks instead of 1 week), it is important to us that we serve kids who are committed to baseball and can sustain energy throughout the 3 weeks. Our straightforward, no-cost application will help us run a safe and smooth camp this summer. Thank you for understanding and taking the time to fill it out out!
BEFORE YOUR FILL OUT THE APPLICATION, PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW THESE STEPS!

Step 2 – Talk With Your Child: Discuss the 3 week program with your child to ensure they understand how Legends camp will be different than previous summers. Make sure they know how important it will be to follow the rules and that safety from the virus is of the utmost importance
Step 3 – *OPTIONAL (but suggested)* Secure A Coach’s Character Recommendation: Reach out to a coach who is familiar with your child and ask them to write a short paragraph about their experience coaching your child. We are looking for kids who LOVE baseball but primarily those who exhibit good behavior, sportsmanship and coach-ability on the field. If you would like to finish the application to make sure it is in by Tuesday night June 2nd, while you work on the Coach’s recommendation you can “edit after submit” and add the coach’s rec later. Here is a video on how to do so. https://tinyurl.com/y7swjuvd You will just need to bookmark or save the confirmation page:
