One aspect of fulfilling our commitment to making baseball accessible is via our summer-long baseball camps for children in the outer city and inner suburb rings of Minneapolis and St. Paul for children ranging in age from 8-14. Our baseball camps provide children a healthy physical outlet and pulls them together in a team environment.
Our approach allows participants to develop a sense of belonging and creates an opportunity to experience positive relationships that reinforce critical life skills; accepting failure, perseverance, winning with dignity, and compassion for others. We understand it is difficult for kids to learn new skills or focus on a positive attitude when they are hungry. This is why the JP4 Foundation ensures nutritional snacks and lunches are part of our weekly camp sessions.
The JP4 Foundation has partnered with Play Laugh Love to bring the game of baseball to over 500 kids in the Twin Cities. All kids are provided with coaching, equipment, and an atmosphere of fun for any child that wishes to attend. After quality coaching and an exciting Sandlot game, every child is served a healthy meal to enjoy with new friends. All at no cost!
This invitation-only event provides a relaxed and worry-free afternoon getaway for the family and friends of some very special hometown organizations; Miracle League of Blaine, HopeKids, Crescent Cove, Reach for Resources, and Special Olympics of Minnesota. The JP4 Foundation introduced this event to support our mission of making baseball accessible to families and to provide an opportunity to bond over a shared love for the game of baseball.
