Waterloo, Iowa – The Waterloo Bucks have announced they will hold three youth baseball camps this summer on the Saturdays of July 8, 29, and August 12.  The camps are open to children ages 17 and under and will begin at noon at Riverfront Stadium.  The cost to attend is $20 per participant.  Each camper will receive a reserved seat ticket to that evening’s Bucks game.

Bucks players will run the camps.  Individuals interested in attending the clinics may sign-up and pay at the Riverfront Stadium Souvenir Stand during Bucks home games starting June 13 or can show up at 11:45 am on the day of the camp with the entry fee and a baseball glove.  Each participant must fill out a Player Information Sheet/Waiver, which can be downloaded here:  7-8-17 camp waiver, at the Riverfront Stadium Souvenir Stand, or on the day of the camp.  For more information, contact the Bucks office at (319) 232-0500.
