The All-Star Baseball Camps are considered as the most popular summer collegiate camps in the country and have been existence for over 30 years. The Stanford All-Star Baseball Camp is widely recognized by college coaches as the best baseball camp in the nation!
This camp is much more than a showcase or identification camp. We describe it as a 3-day “BASEBALL EXPERIENCE”. You will live 3 days of baseball. You will receive college instruction, play games and experience campus life at Stanford University.
The Stanford Baseball Camps are the best way to be seen and evaluated by our coaching staff. On our current roster and with our 2020 recruiting class over 75% of those players have attended Stanford Baseball Camps. That roster won the 2018 Pac-12 Championship, advanced to last year's Super Regional, produced two first round draft picks and had 9 players drafted from last year's team alone.
This four day/three-night camp will have first class instructors from over 40 UNIVERSITIES. The colleges represented on staff vary with every session. This type of setup allows for exposure to many other schools besides Stanford University.
We have multiple objectives for our camp. First, we want to evaluate a player’s current level of abilities and identify what a player has to do to improve his skill level. Second, we want to expose your baseball skills to colleges from every region of the country. Thirdly, we want to give you our opinion of what level of baseball should be available to the player in his coming years. Finally, we want to give you access to some of the best baseball instructors in the country. Our staff is very “hands on” during the camp with the hope that our suggestions will lead to improvement in your game.

Camp Information Packet
A full packet of camp information and camp details will be emailed out to participants in April.
There will be a certified athletic trainer at all fields to care for minor injuries and illness. If a camper gets sick or injured while at camp, they will assess the situation and make the decision of what needs to be done. Parents or guardians will be contacted immediately if there is a serious injury or if a camper needs to leave camp early for a medical reason. Please make a notation on the medical portion of your registration if there is any medical condition we should be aware of in advance of the camper’s attendance at camp.
Insurance information provided on the Medical Waiver Form MUST be accurate. All campers must have their own medical insurance.
Camp Medical Wavier Form
Each camper must have a completed and signed Medical Wavier Form in order to attend camp. If you register for camp online, the Medical Wavier Form can be completed online as well. If you are mailing in a registration form, you will receive a printable version of the Medical Wavier Form when you receive your registration confirmation email.
Can I attend camp as a “Day Camper”?
You do not have to stay in the dorm or eat in the dorm, but we have just one rate for camp, $1150. We do not offer a separate “day camper” fee.
If I'm attending camp with friends or teammates—can we be roommates in dorm?
Absolutely. When your register online there will be a spot for your to request a roommate(s). In addition, we try (but cannot guarantee) to put friends on the same camp team.
