2012 ANNUAL YEAR-END APPEAL
The Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame & Museum envisions a culture which champions education, respect, diversity and healthy lifestyles across generations. The Hall is highly committed to this vision and incorporates it in all aspects of programming, especially for the younger generation. A healthy and respectful youth leads to a healthy and respectful Canada. At this time, we ask for your help to continue our work nurturing children and youth by teaching them life lessons through the game of baseball.
At the Hall, we offer the following programs for youth:
Kids on Deck Summer Camp
Kids on Deck is for boys and girls, ages 9-15, from beginners to more experienced players. We focus on the FUNdamentals of the game and use baseball to teach social justice and cultural awareness to the players.
A free six-session program open to boys and girls aged 6-16 with a wide range of experience. This program teaches the participants baseball skills and gets them ready for the upcoming ball season.
School groups are given the opportunity to come to the Hall of Fame to learn about the game and history of baseball and to play ball.
The Hall hosts more than 450 games at its site every year. A fourth ball field is currently being built to accommodate the growing need for space for children to play.
