The Breckenridge Professional Baseball Camp is celebrating its 25th anniversary next week, with 60 campers ages 8-15 already registered to attend.

From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday at Kingdom Park in Breckenridge, campers will have fun at the same time they’re learning skills. Drills are both offense and defense focused, and campers are coached at an eight-to-one ratio by a combination of professional, college and high school coaches and former players.

The camp was started and is coordinated by Mark Drury with friend Marti Wolever, the Philadelphia Phillies’ assistant general manager of amateur scouting.

Roughly 90 percent of those registered hail from Summit County, but the camp also attracts baseball players from Alma, Leadville and Grand Lake as well as St. Louis and the Virgin Islands.

Three girls are currently registered to join the boys.

To learn more or to see if registration is available, email Drury at or call (303) 902-8572.
