The Boston Red Sox Summer Camps whisk young hardball habitués away on weeklong journeys into baseball fantasyland, complete with uniforms and coaching from professional instructors. Attendees (ages 5–13) matriculate into six professional-sounding divisions, where they can improve power swings during home-run derbies and compete in baserunning races with children of the same age. Inspired play surfaces after baseball campers mingle with a current or former Red Sox player, depending on the Red Sox road schedule, or return from the all-access tour of Fenway Park. Scouting reports from the professional coaching staff highlight each camper's strengths and weaknesses in order to cultivate a well-rounded portfolio of baseball assets. A list of what to bring keeps campers from showing up with embarrassing entourages or mistakenly bringing pet vampire bats.
Inside each Sky Zone location, a wall-to-wall half-pipe made entirely of trampolines gives children and adults a venue where they can safely hop, bounce, and somersault to their hearts' content. The vast, taut, springy flooring doesn't end at the walls, but instead the trampolines continue upward to form angles perfect for crawling up, springing off, or sliding down. Visitors can meander along the bounceable terrain in the open trampoline arena, throw themselves into giant foam pits, or sharpen their competitive edges in trampoline-assisted sports such as dodgeball. SkyRobics classes merge gravity-defying fun with fitness during instructor-led workouts that include calisthenics, core exercises, and strength-building aerobics to help guests shed calories without hurting their joints or taking a wrong turn on a treadmill.

In a golf career that spans more than three decades, Skip Guss has trained under World Golf Hall of Famer Sam Snead, CBS Golf Analyst Peter Kostis, and Jack Grout, a golf legend who coached Jack Nicklaus to 73 PGA Tour wins. The tools and techniques gleaned from this group of golf intelligentsia led Skip to considerable success on the course, fueling victories in more than 30 pro-golf tournaments and a stint as a PGA Tour contender from 1977–1978. These skills continue to drive his passion for the game at GolfRite Performance Center, where Skip combines his pin-hunting wisdom with modern technology to enhance his students' skills and bionic putter arms.
From Southborough Golf Practice & Learning Center, Skip and his team of instructors watch as golfers drive balls into a 300-yard driving range—which facilitates practice day and night—while video analysis helps the pros dissect swings without having to ask clients to swing in slow-motion. In addition, the Center's custom club-fitting equipment can pair golfers with their crooked-stick counterpart based on body dimensions, swing mechanics, and penchant for chewing fairway grass.
