HAITI :: Haitian All-Americans

The All-American sport of baseball was introduced to campers this summer. Thanks to our partnership with Physicians For Peace and the generous support of the Major League Baseball Players Trust, we were able to bring baseball caps, bats, balls and gloves to Camp Jake. 

Kids learned the basics and even played modified games on the beach. Seat cushions served as bases in the sand along the beach. Teams were created and the fun began, offering lessons in teamwork, following directions and, of course, exercise. 

Campers of all abilities participated, some ditching their crutches—like Remy—because they could hop faster from base-to-base. We continue to be amazed and inspired by the ability of these campers and relish the opportunity to provide new experiences to them at each camp session.

Interested in serving as as a counselor for Camp Jake 2014? 
Please fill out the volunteer interest form on our website and we'll get back 
to you! We're already looking for people for next year's camp.
