Each day of the camp is broken out into sessions of Instruction, Game Time and Supervised Recreation.

Instruction includes drills, positional work, chalk talk and video analysis. Each afternoon the players compete in throwing, running, hitting, bunting and fielding segments. Teams compete throughout the week in games, and also earn points(RUNS) for good sportsmanship and behavior, culminating in an awards ceremony at the end of the camp. All players leave with individual written evaluations from their instructors.

Game time is when players scrimmage the other teams in camp. Coaches will make lineups and players will head to the field early to warm up and go through pre-game routines.

Supervised Recreation varies from arena activities, team time and heading to the pool. Arena activities range from ping pong, hockey shootouts, karaoke, movies, trivia and more! Once per camp, teams will go through the Pool Olympics: Swimming Relay and Best Cannonball.
