I will do this one day for sure, hopefully get a bunch of college buddies that I haven't seen for a while to jump into it too.

Even if you struggle to get a group of friends to go together, you won't be disappointed with the experience if you go down there solo. I got tired of waiting for friends to commit and just went knowing no one. It's a large group of mostly like minded individuals, so it's easy to make some new friends while down there.

I see there is a great list of things to bring on the first page of this thread, are there things you would suggest to add to that list? Also, I've noticed some camps do not allow metal cleats, do the Brewers have a Plastic Cleats only policy? Not going to lie, I was looking forward to the sound of the Metal Cleats.

The list earlier in the thread is good. That is what I used to pack for my first camp. I suggest throwing in a winter hat and a hoodie for the potentially chilly mornings. Batting gloves haven’t been provided each time, so I’d bring a pair just in case. I now bring a couple of my bats since I tend to like mine vs what is provided.

Metal Cleats are allowed and that is what I bring. Spending all day in even the comfiest of cleats can make the feet sore. I typically wear turf shoes to and from the fields just to keep my feet happy.

The pro store hasn’t been open the last couple camps, so it’s definitely worth packing some warm clothes with the hopes of not needing them.

Swim trunks for the hot and cold tub are a must as well as a can coozie to keep your post game beer cold.

Fingers crossed the new logo (Allegedly) shows up on the Camp uniforms.

2020 is the 50th anniversary of the Brewers, so the uniforms will be (very likely) the 1970 uniforms.

Sounds like we are getting 72-77 uniforms. Which are extremely similar to the 70-71. 74 days to go.

Yep! Nice perk of getting two full uniforms this year too. Usually don't get a second pair of pants. Should be a great time as always.

Sweet, I didn't catch the two Full uni's part. Now I get to wait to see if Spiderz makes a powder blue set of batting gloves for camp.

Very, very cool. Hope you have a blast.

You should post some photos for all to see when all is said and done. I bet a lot of people would find it interesting.

Yes! I would love daily recaps if you have the time. Or at least a summary at the end.

Just stay out of Club 101 at Fantasy Camp. It's a very seedy joint and the guys who run it are sketchy at best.

That’s where I’m at although I’m suspecting my body would forbid it by the time I have the time.

For anyone who’s been there, what’s roughly the median age?

Average age is probably 40-45ish. I think the ages have skewed younger over the last couple of years. But, there's guys who are 65+ that go every year that have a blast.

I will do my best to try to get this page a daily recap of some sort and possibly some pictures.

I started planning to do this in my early 30's. I decided to wait until I was 40 to actually go. I definitely feel that I completely missed my window of athletic ability though.

There is a daily newsletter each morning of Fantasy Camp that gets posted on the Brewers Website as well. Typically they do a quick recap of the prior day's game and talk about some Brewers/Baseball lore of yesteryear.
