Anybody have recommendations for baseball camps for a serious high school-age player? I'm looking for recommendations on sleep away camps for a week or longer anywhere along the east coast. Preferably from southern New England south to about North or South Carolina, or anywhere within a day's drive from the DC area.

Thanks in advance.

The Clemson Univ camps are reputed to be the best camps for position instruction as far as the Carolina's go. I don't have first hand knowledge there, but that advice came from a Dad whose son is currently on a baseball scholarship at South Carolina. He was adamant about the quality of the camp.

North Carolina Baseball Academy is supposed to be pretty good. Owned and run by old friend Scot Bankhead. Located in Greensboro, so it's only about 20 miles south of the Virginia line.

You're only an hour away from Aberdeen, Maryland, which is where Cal and Billy Ripkin's baseball academy is located.

Anyone have knowledge of or experience with the Nike Baseball Camp held at Endicott College north of Boston? Know anything about the facilities? Camp is run by Cary McConnell, Head Coach at Suffolk University.

Thanks.
