In 2018, the Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Academy hosted 14 Super Camps throughout Canada, including all provinces and one territory, delivering memorable baseball experiences to over 1,500 players. Thank you to everyone who joined us!
Blue Jays Super Camps are two or three day, four-hour baseball skills camps happening in communities all across Canada from July to August.
Super Camps provide male and female players aged 9-16 with the ultimate Major League experience: learning skills and techniques from former Major Leaguers! During the camp, players will rotate through drills that will cover all skills including: hitting, throwing, fielding, pitching, and base running. Camps run 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. each day.
Each participant will receive a Blue Jays hat, T-shirt, baseball manual and the opportunity to get autographs from the Blue Jays alumni present.

How do I enroll for a Blue Jays Super Camps?
Registration for Super Camps can be done above by clicking the registration button. Please be sure to register for the correct camp in your area. Super Camps have limited enrolment and do sell out, so register early to avoid disappointment.
Do you accept walk up registrations?
Due to the fact that we expect each Blue Jays Super Camps to be sold out, we encourage you to register in advance. In the case of a camp not being sold out, walk up registrations will be accepted.
Do I receive a confirmation when I register?
All registered participants will receive a confirmation email after registering for the camp. An information email about the camp will be sent out roughly a week prior to the camp date and will contain details about the camp including when to arrive, what to bring and details on alternative facilities in the event of rain or unplayable field conditions. Receipts will be emailed to participants at least two weeks before the start of camp.
How do you handle inclement weather?
If the camp encounters heavy rains, thunderstorms or if the fields are unplayable, we will do our best to temporarily move the programs inside. If we see lightning or hear thunder, outdoor camp programs are immediately brought inside as we take extreme precaution to ensure that attending campers are safe.
What precautions do you take to handle the summer heat?
The Blue Jays Baseball Academy is well aware that the summer heat can drain a camper throughout the day. Water is always available, and campers are encouraged to take water breaks approximately every 15-20 minutes. We take the heat, humidity and the air quality seriously. On a daily basis, the Blue Jays Baseball Academy communicates with our hosts at each camp location to discuss the heat and air index. On extremely hot days and for those campers spending the majority of their time playing outdoors, participants will take plenty of water breaks.
Can Blue Jays Super Camps accommodate children with peanut or life-threatening allergies?
Yes. Families with children who have peanut or nut allergies can feel safe and comfortable at our summer camps. We are well aware of the dangers and concerns with allergies and take our allergy procedures and systems seriously. Upon registration (and in the morning of each camp day), Blue Jays Baseball Academy directors take special note of the children with allergies by placing a mandatory, but inconspicuous, coloured paper bracelet around the child's wrist marked with the child's name for identification purposes.
What time do I pick up my child each day from the Super Camps?
The Blue Jays Baseball Academy encourages you to arrive 30 minutes before the camp concludes, but the child will probably be completely ready to be picked up at the conclusion of the camp.
Is there a refund if my child has to cancel for whatever reason?
A full refund, less a $10 administration fee, will be granted if registration is cancelled at least 48 hours prior to camp date. Any cancellations within 48 hours of the camp will not receive a refund.
Can parents stay and watch the Blue Jays Super Camps?
The Blue Jays Baseball Academy encourages parents to stay a watch their children participate in the Blue Jays Super Camps.
