At the club's locations in Central Park and East Hampton, Bulldogs start out playing fun get-to-know-you games before splitting into warm-ups where older kids act as mentors to little ones. In the mornings, throwing demos are followed by partner pitch-and-catch sessions and a skill-set rotation including base running, fielding, pitching and catching, and hitting. After activity-filled lunch breaks (youngsters bring their own meals from home, and the club brings fun stuff like water balloons), teams face off in a full game, and at the end of the week, evenly matched teams of campers compete in the Bulldogs Baseball Olympics. Awards for the organization's core values—positivity, effort, perseverance and sportsmanship—are given to four players who best respresent each of these ideals. East Hampton location: John M. Marshall Elementary School, 3 Gingerbead Ln, East Hampton, NY. Ages 6–12.
