Sluggerz Summer Baseball Camp is designed for beginner and intermediate players as players will be grouped according to skill, age and gender (where appropriate). The goal of the program is to
introduce new players to the game of baseball in a positive and safe environment.
Players with more experience will be challenged to improve their skill set and expand their knowledge of the game. The program is designed and instructed by Ottawa Gee Gee’s varsity baseball players and other baseball specialists. Also, special guest speakers will be in once a week from the Ottawa Titans Pro Baseball Team to help coach and run through some drills.
The majority of the day will be spent on baseball related activities with skills such as fielding, catching, hitting and pitching being emphasized. We can’t forget this is a game and our summer camp is also designed to be FUN, with our wide range of activities withing the facility, your child will have a summer to remember!
Facilities and Activities
The Sluggerz Baseball camp makes use of the full range of Ottawa Mega Dome’s modern indoor facility. This facility includes a 100,000 sq/ft field, Sluggers batting cages with brand new pitching machines and well as the pitching mounds. Each day we prepare two complete schedules, one including outdoor activities and lessons for good days and the other for wet or excessively hot days which takes place entirely indoors. There is no need to worry about campers being bored if the weather turns bad. To switch things up we also have access to all of Maxx games
indoor inflatables that includes Ottawa’s biggest inflatable obstacle course, a 5ft slide, tug-a-touch down and lase tag once a week for a little change of pace! On Thurs or Fridays (weather depending) we walk to the Cardel Rec center for an hour swim.
Off Campus Activites
Parents, please note that for parts of the day, your child will be playing baseball at the diamond at Fringewood Park. Fringewood park is located a short 10 min walk on the community walking paths (not roads). To get to and from the baseball diamond, your child will be walking safely with our counsellors. We also walk to Cardel Rec center on Thursdays or Fridays (weather depending) for a swim at their facility.
