The summer camp helps build strong communities by teaching life lessons about teamwork, leadership and fair play, on and off the field. Registered players receive a hat, water bottle, backpack, glove and t-shirt, imprinted with the name of a current Toronto Blue Jays player.

Lunch is provided to children daily and will make special accommodations for dietary restrictions. The kids go out to weekly baseball games where they play other Blue Jays camps in a fun game of baseball. Trips are provided every week for the children as well.
