Welcome to the Official Site of the Detroit Tigers Baseball/Softball Camps

Any boy or girl who has ever picked up a bat, a ball and dared to dream the dream will find these week-long camps about as close to Tigers baseball heaven as they can get to being their favorite Tigers players.

Tigers Territory loves its baseball and softball. From tee-ball to travel ball, this is truly one of the nation's great hotbeds for these wonderful games. As a professional baseball organization, the Detroit Tigers have so much to share with the tens of thousands of players, parents and coaches who love baseball and softball as much as we do!

Finally, we have the perfect vehicle to share what we know with you.

Our promise is to create a world class Detroit Tigers Baseball Experience that will create lifelong memories for every boy and girl who joins us. Read on and see why this summer could be the best summer ever for your young player.

Camp Philosophy

Camp Culture
The Curriculum
Safety. Safety. Safety.

How can we have a camp with six year-olds and 14 year-olds? Great question. Look at it this way. A K-8 school does not have second graders and eighth graders in P.E. or math class together. They may pass in the hallways, take the same bus and be in the same yearbook but they are not in class together. Get the picture? At Tigers Baseball Camp, they will not be in "class" together either.

Not all players of the same age have equal ability. For safety reasons and because it facilitates the best learning environment, players will be grouped by age and ability. These "teams" will then stay together throughout the week with the same coach. There will be cross-pollination of instructors but we have found that the bonds created between teammates and their primary coach is one of the truly special dynamics at camp.

And yes, at our instructors' discretion, tennis balls, whiffle balls and safety balls will be used liberally at camp. Of course, we will use regulation baseballs and softballs but fear-free confidence is a critical foundation for fun and learning success.

Travel Player??? We're Ready For You Too!

Tigers Coach at Camp

On one of the camp days, the kids will be bussed to Comerica Park where they will meet up with a Tigers coach. The kids will be introduced to some of the fascinating and behind-the-scenes aspects of "game day" in the Big Leagues. What a great and unique experience.
