Start getting yourself in shape for November.

The Los Angeles Dodgers Adult Baseball Camp will return November 9-15 to Historic Dodgertown in Vero Beach, Florida.

“The Dodgers are delighted our fans will have the opportunity to interact with Dodger legends and experience the wonders of Historic Dodgertown at the adult baseball camp,” Dodger president and CEO Stan Kasten said. “Historic Dodgertown plays an integral role in the lore of Dodger baseball and the camp will surely provide lasting memories for all participants.”

Campers will stay, play and dine on the Dodgertown campus, featuring 10 fields and 60 years of Dodger Spring Training history. It’s a short walk in a park-like setting from their housing villa to the baseball fields, the major league clubhouse, the inviting dining room, relaxing lounge and fitness center.

“Historic Dodgertown has been the site of more than 50 adult baseball camps, and we are committed to making the November 9-15 camp the most memorable ever,” said Peter O’Malley, chairman of Historic Dodgertown.

Included in the camp price are three meals a day, double occupancy lodging in one of Historic Dodgertown’s newly-designed villas, two authentic personalized Dodger jerseys (both home and road), a video of camp activities and team photo, an autographed baseball by the instructors and other Dodger personnel in attendance, participation in a game between instructors and campers at Holman Stadium, a poolside cocktail party on the first day after check-in, and use of the fitness center and recreational facilities (including basketball and tennis courts and the competition-size swimming pool).
