Phillies Phundamentals

A partnership with Philadelphia Parks & Recreation and sponsored by Chick-fil-A, Phillies Phundamentals is a summer camp program for children 6-12 years old that uses baseball to teach and reinforce academic skills.

Today, Phillies Phundamentals runs in 16 locations, reaching approximately 1,500 children annually.


Any academic subject can easily use baseball as a tool to educate. Phillies Phundamentals lessons have focused on mathematics by using player statistics, reading/literature, history, science, health, geography and art. During the 2019 summer session, the children will participate in exercises with a goal to eliminate bullying by encouraging them to choose kindness.
