Shawn Anthony Camp (born November 18, 1975 in Fairfax, Virginia) is an American Major League Baseball relief pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays. Camp stands at 6'0" tall and weighs 200 pounds. He throws and bats right-handed.

Camp began his baseball career as a catcher at Robinson Secondary School in Fairfax, Virginia. He graduated from high school in 1994 and continued as a backstop in college while attending the University of North Alabama and George Mason University, the school from which he would be drafted. Struggling to hit collegiate pitching, Camp converted to a pitcher at George Mason with the help of then Patriots assistant baseball coach Dayton Moore.

The right-hander was drafted in the sixteenth round of the 1997 amateur entry draft by the San Diego Padres; the five hundredth overall selection of that year's draft. The newly converted reliever steadily climbed the ranks of the Padres' minor league system, collecting 25 saves in his first two years of professional baseball.
