As a certified teacher and coach I understand and promote the importance of sport and being a part of a team or group, on a child’s social and emotional development. This is one of the many reasons that motivated me to start Field of Dreams in 2011. I am honoured to hold READ MORE...
Field of Dreams Baseball Camp (FOD) is the GTA’s premier baseball day camp, with four incredible locations in Thornhill, Aurora Vaughan, and Elite Camp, and new for 2019, a 5th location at Camp Zodiac in Toronto. Field of Dreams Baseball Camp originated in Thornhill at Thornhill Park in 2011, and this year will be celebrating it’s 9th summer serving the community with an incredible camp program!
Each camp location provides campers a choice of two different sections: A High Performance Camp and a Rookie Ball Camp (except for the Elite Camp which is exclusively for older and more competitive players). Both the High Performance and Rookie Ball sections include baseball instruction in hitting, catching, fielding and throwing, as well as pitching and catching clinics run by experienced instructors. All campers will have an opportunity to participate in live games/scrimmages, a mini wiffle baseball league, weekly skills competitions, along with an award ceremony at the end of each week.
At the Thornhill and Aurora locations there will be swimming 2-3 times a week (weather permitting).
FOD Baseball Camp is open to boys and girls age 6-16. No baseball experience is required
Camp hours are 9:00am to 3:00pm. Extended day camp is available for an additional fee and allows for drop off at 8:30am and pickup up until 4:30pm.
The Field of Dreams Baseball Camp is a fully outdoor camp and each location will have their own inclement weather procedure
Rookie Ball Section:
The Rookie Ball camp in Thornhill, Vaughan, and Aurora, provides less experienced, less competitive baseball players, and beginners, age 6-12 with the perfect mix of baseball instruction and other baseball related activities and games throughout the day. Rookie Ball campers will learn the fundamentals of the game (throwing, catching, hitting, fielding and pitching), through instruction, fun drills and scrimmages / live games.
**In both sections of FOD, our instructors are dedicated to the development of each camper’s physical and mental baseball skills, while also focusing on positive attitude, teamwork and having FUN at summer camp! Campers will also participate in the FOD camp favourite “wiffle ball league.”
Registration for Rookie Ball is for beginners, House League players, and those striving to get to the next level. Campers will be split up based on skill level and age. We reserve the right to move campers between Rookie Ball and High Performance programs as we see fit, for their safety and for the integrity of the program.
High Performance Section:
The High Performance camp provides 9-14 year olds playing competitive baseball (select, rep or elite) with advanced skill development at each of our three locations (Thornhill, Aurora, and Vaughan). This program run by experienced instructors, builds on fundamental skills already learned, and aims to take the player to a higher level of the game. Campers will be exposed to a high level of instruction and participate in fun and challenging drills, and live and modified games to improve their skills. This section provides the ultimate mix of learning and fun!

Registration for the High Performance Camp is only for those playing at the select, rep, or elite level. House League players and those striving to get to the next level will be in the more advanced “Rookie Ball” section.

This is our first summer offering an exclusive Elite Camp to players who want to train at a high and intense level, at Concord Regional Park. It will only be offered for a few weeks over the summer to give our select, rep, and elite campers an alternative skill development environment. The Elite camp will be run by high level instructors with college and professional experience. Campers should expect an intense training session providing them with high quality instruction in a challenging and exciting environment.
This camp will differ from our other camp locations in that it is only offered for competitive level players ages 10-15. It will be a serious environment with a high level warm up and challenging drills. During scrimmages/live games instructors will coach the players, analyze plays, and develop game strategies with the players. The Elite Camp will be a great opportunity for players and teammates to prepare for the season; where certain weeks are offered to prepare for playoffs and OBAs.
