Another excellent week of #CRSFcamp is in the books, thanks to an uncommon group of campers, mentors, and Badges for Baseball coaches from as close as Baltimore and as far away as Nicaragua!
We stayed in cabins on the Chesapeake Bay:
We learned, practiced, and played lots of baseball at the fields in Aberdeen:
Our Badges for Baseball partners taught us helpful skills, showed us their gear, and talked to us about what it means to protect and serve:
In addition, we had the honor of having some military veterans join us as coaches this week, which inspired our campers and our chaperones to push themselves to new heights…
We also had other inspiring speakers…
We have Mr. Van Brooks in the house tonight speaking to our campers. "You're not defeated when you lose, only when you give up." #CRSFcamp— Scott Swinson (@Scott_CRSF) August 16, 2016
We made new friends and tried new things….
…and worked together with all kinds of teammates…
Overall, we had an amazing time!
