Yankees summer camps to return to the tri-state area in 2015; enrollment forms are now available online

American Dairy Association and Dairy Council's "Refuel with Chocolate Milk" Initiative to Sponsor Yankees Summer Camp Attendance for 85 Children

The New York Yankees today announced that New York Yankees Summer Camps presented by Refuel with Chocolate Milk will take place in the New York tri-state area beginning the week of June 22, 2015. Enrollment forms are now available at www.yankees.com/camps.

Yankees Summer Camps are available to boys and girls between the ages of 5 and 13, with each camper receiving a full Yankees uniform. In addition to on-field skill development and professional instruction, campers also get the opportunity to take an exclusive guided tour of Yankee Stadium and much more.

Sessions are currently being offered in two different packages: the World Series Package, which includes one-week sessions in New York (Farmingdale, Locust Valley, Tarrytown and White Plains) and New Jersey (Cresskill, Denville, Far Hills, Oradell and Princeton) and the Hall of Fame Package that includes two-week sessions in Old Brookeville, N.Y., Holmdel, N.J. and Norwalk, Conn. Further details and availability for each package can be viewed at www.yankees.com/camps.

"Each week our Yankees Campers will work hard with our coaches to learn proper baseball mechanics in order to maximize each camper's individual playing 'tools'," said Brendan Sullivan, President of Yankees Summer Camps. "We wrap this development into an unforgettable week-long Major League Experience, which includes a behind-the-scenes tour of Yankee Stadium and an opportunity to meet a player on the current roster. There's no better way to get closer to our favorite team."

As part of the American Dairy Association and Dairy Council's "Refuel with Chocolate Milk" initiative, 85 children from local families will receive full scholarships to attend Yankees Summer Camp at Heritage Field - which is located on the site of the original Yankee Stadium and administered by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation - during the week of July 27-30.

"Milk plays an important role in children's diets because it's a source of so many nutrients like calcium, Vitamin D and protein needed for a healthy body," said Rick Naczi, CEO of the American Dairy Association. "Drinking low fat chocolate milk after sports is a great way for athletes to refuel. Teaming up with the Yankees gives us an opportunity to educate kids about the role nutrition plays in athletic performance."
