Welcome to Sluggerz Summer Baseball Camp, a dynamic program tailored to both novice and intermediate players. Participants will be organized into groups based on their skill level, age, and, when applicable, gender. Our primary objective is to provide a positive and secure environment for newcomers to discover the joys of baseball.
For those with prior experience, we are dedicated to helping you refine your skills and deepen your understanding of the game. The program is meticulously crafted and led by Ottawa Gee Gee's varsity baseball players, along with other accomplished baseball specialists. Additionally, we're thrilled to announce that we'll have special guest speakers from the Ottawa Titans Pro Baseball Team joining us once a week to offer coaching and engage in practice drills.
Throughout the day, we'll immerse ourselves in a variety of baseball-related activities, with a strong focus on essential skills such as fielding, catching, hitting, and pitching. But let's not forget that this is, above all, a game, and our summer camp is designed to be incredibly FUN! Within our extensive facility, your child will enjoy a wide range of activities, creating unforgettable summer memories.
Join Sluggerz Summer Baseball Camp for a summer of growth, camaraderie, and, most importantly, loads of baseball-inspired fun!
Facilities and Activities
The Sluggerz Baseball camp maximizes the state-of-the-art amenities offered by the Ottawa Mega Dome's modern indoor facility. This impressive venue boasts a sprawling 100,000 square-foot field, complete with Sluggers batting cages equipped with brand-new pitching machines and pitching mounds. Our camp takes full advantage of this facility by providing two comprehensive daily schedules to cater to various weather conditions. One schedule is designed for sunny days, featuring outdoor activities and lessons, while the other is tailored to wet or excessively hot days, offering a full day of engaging indoor activities.
Rest assured, bad weather won't dampen the spirits of our campers. To keep things exciting, we also have access to Maxx Games' indoor inflatables, including Ottawa's largest inflatable obstacle course, a thrilling 50-foot slide, tug-of-war competitions, and weekly laser tag sessions. Additionally, weather permitting, on Thursdays or Fridays, we embark on an invigorating walk to the Cardel Recreation Center for an hour of swimming, ensuring a well-rounded and enjoyable experience for all our campers.
Off Campus Activites
We would like to inform you that during certain periods of the day, your child will be engaging in baseball activities at the Fringewood Park diamond. Fringewood Park is conveniently situated just a brief 10-minute stroll away from our location, accessible via community walking paths rather than roads. Rest assured that your child's journey to and from the baseball diamond will be supervised by our attentive counselors, ensuring their safety throughout.
Additionally, on Thursdays or Fridays (depending on weather conditions), we plan to take the children on a pleasant walk to the Cardel Recreation Center. There, they will have the opportunity to enjoy a swim at the facility.
Thank you for entrusting us with your child's well-being and enriching experiences.
