The Parksville Royals Baseball Club held its second Kid’s Camp of the season Tuesday at Nunn’s Creek Park in Campbell River.
The free camp was well attended with over 200 youngsters from ages 5 to 13 participating. The camp was organized by the Royals in conjunction with the Campbell River Minor Baseball Association (CRMBA).
CRMBA volunteer and Royals alumni Ryan Chenard was pleased with how the event turned out.
“Our association has a long history with the Royals and it means a lot to the parents and young players to have the Royals come out and put on this camp. There are 200 kids on three different fields so it’s quite a production,” Chenard said. The Royals draw players from across the North Island.
The Royals are celebrating their 25th year this season and, as part of the celebration, the Premier Royals will be playing two home games at Nunn’s Creek Park. On April 27 the Royals will play a double-header against the Victoria Eagles and on May 19 they will play the Fraser Valley Cardinals.
