What You'll Get
Baseball camp is very similar to regular camp, except there are coaches instead of counselors and the bunks are made of mascot mustaches. Hit a home run with today's Groupon: for $260, you get one enrollment in a Boston Red Sox Summer Camp at the Fay School in Southborough. Choose between Tuesday, July 5 to Saturday, July 9, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day; and Monday, July 11 to Friday, July 15, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day. When you click "Buy" you'll be redirected to mlb.com to complete your transaction. Please note that the July 5–9 option is currently sold out.
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.
At the end of each camp, a closing awards ceremony recognizes players and teams in front of friends and family while doling out special prizes such as throwing a first pitch during a Red Sox home game and special ticket opportunities. To rekindle summer rapports and heated rivalries, fans can buy tickets to September's Camp Family Reunion Night at Fenway Park, which places each camp graduate on the playing field prior to the first pitch to receive recognition, admire the bright lights, and build ball-trapping sandcastle moats at second base.
