"Thank you! And, I'd like to add that we were so pleased with the program. Your crew is extremely organized, friendly, and helpful. I would definitely recommend this camp to everyone interested. Thank you for a fabulous week. This was a very memorable experience for my son."
"Just wanted to let you know that Will has been at camp now for three days and is having a FANTASTIC time. The guys that are there are all kind, fun, and helpful. He is learning and having fun. Thank you for helping me get into the camp. He is already asking to come back next year."
"This was Evan's second year at Red Sox camp, and this year was even better than last (minus meeting a player, of course). Thanks to everyone who helps this camp run so smoothly...drop off, pick up and everything in between seems to be well orchestrated. Evan wishes he could go next week as well! Special thanks to his coach Jeff, who we heard lots of good things about. We will be back next year for more. For a kid who loves everything baseball, Red Sox camp is the best."
"I just wanted to write to thank you for helping Dylan get this week at Red Sox camp. He has been excited all summer and I spoke to his mother yesterday and she said that he leaves their apartment every morning excited to go and comes home from camp in a great mood (which isn't always the case!). So THANK YOU for all your help in making this happen!"
"I would like to say how fantastic my children's experience has been this week at Red Sox Camp at Fessenden. They are having a wonderful time, they are learning alot and gaining so much confidence in their abilities. My son Jack is playing summer baseball, and when he played this week, he was so much more focused and into the game. His throwing has really improved and his hitting is better too. I also think as a parent that this is one of the best planned and run camps I have ever seen. Every detail is taken care of, and the staff is great!!! It truly is the experience of a lifetime for these kids!!!!! A+++ to everyone!!"
"The way we were greeted every time we arrived at camp, with counselors waving all the way up the driveway to the Rashi School, and the way that they opened the car door, greeted Simon enthusiastically, and helped him out was also just a very nice touch. The photo from Fenway, arriving in real time, was also a really great thing. I immediately forwarded it to the relatives. I am sure it takes a major effort to take those photos and send them out in real time. I have nothing of a constructive nature to offer at all. It was just a great experience "around the horn." I regret that I did not sign him up sooner so we could have gotten the week at Fessenden (this week), which is literally half a mile away, but that is on my end, not yours. So please pass along our thanks to the entire team. We will surely see you next year."
"I just wanted to tell you what an incredible time Abe and Simon had at Red Sox camp last week.
For both of them, this was a first time playing baseball in any kind of organized way, and I worried that they might feel out of place or unable to keep up with more experienced campers. The boys came home each day tired and happy--and looking forward to returning to camp the next day, which is all that I could have asked for. There was a great balance of practice and game playing and both boys felt like a part of the team. And I think they both learned important skills for being a good player and also what it takes to be part of a team. And from registration to drop off each morning, staff was welcoming, professional and friendly. In every way, the experience exceeded my expectations."
"I just want to say how impressed we have been with this week's camp. We have 8 & 5 year olds and they have had the time of their lives... Each day they've been excited to get ready in their official Red Sox uniform and have been totally entertained by the organized activities and structured baseball coaching. Both boys came home excited to tell us what they've been doing during the day and were frequently mentioning the coaches and how 'cool' they are! It was the first camp we've done since we moved to America (from England) so we were a little apprehensive and nervous as to what to expect. From the first moment we arrived you could see how well organized the event is and we felt at ease leaving the boys in capable hands knowing they were going to be having a fun day! A massive well done to the coaching team - you do a great job... Many thanks..."
"Dear Coaches, Organizers and Staff of Red Sox Camps, we want to express our deepest appreciation and congratulations for the outstanding opportunity our son Andrés experienced at Red Sox Camp in Dedham July 15 - 19. He mentioned several times how fun and respectful all the coaches and staff were to all the campers, which really underlines the values development over technical skills that is so important in the formation of young athletes. Andrés felt very comfortable among all of you and his fellow campers alike. I felt the same comfort with the few staff I met and spoke with briefly; you all had an energetic and professional attitude."
"As we pulled in to the camp drop-off area this morning, my son recognized some of the same counselors from last summer and became excited. When I stopped the car and one came over to help him unload, the counselor commented that he remembered my son from last summer and welcomed him back. It certainly made the morning better that there was this mutual recognition and appreciation. When I returned in the afternoon to pick him up, my son had stories of how Andy (his same counselor from last summer) had challenged him to catch, dive and retrieve difficult balls but he had managed to snag them all. Whether it was all true or not, the color and enthusiasm with which he told the story made me happy as did the tell tale grass stains, corroborating his story, on his pants."
"Over the past two years I have become friends with some of the people that run the Red Sox Baseball Camp at the Fay School during the Summer. The camp and the people are amazing and my son has learned so much from attending. And not only baseball skills but life skills that help shape our children at a young age. Many of the moms that have sent their kids there agree that during the week they are in camp, they are better kids...the eat better, the listen better, they are nicer! We often ask if the staff can contact the kids all year long to remind them of these great behaviors!!"

"I wanted to thank you for a wonderful week at camp, Matthew had a fantastic time!!! He was literally in tears before bed tonight when he realized he was not going back on Monday. I was so impressed with every aspect of the camp and felt very comfortable dropping him off each day. Your staff was so engaging and responsible. It was run perfectly. I will be in touch for certain for August 8th-12th when you are back at Belmont Hill. Thank you again!"
- Jennifer Flaherty
"WOW!!!! My children are absolutely loving their camp this week. I would like to thank both the Director and all the staff at the camp for their kindness to our family. We are driving in over 2 hours each way to come to camp each day and they went above and beyond. My friend is racing to pick them up and was stuck in the fun traffic of Boston, they were smiling and laughing when she finally arrived and just made my kids feel great! I have been amazed with each and every person's positive and fun attitude each day and so happy that my children get to spend the week with such great influences. Thank you, thank you!"
"What a great experience it's been to see him so eager and read each morning, then arriving to the extremely well-organized and enthusiastic staffers as they welcome, encourage, and teach these children, and from what I see always in a refreshingly upbeat way. I hope Matthew can return next year, and that he'll bring along a cousin or two. Thank you Red Sox Camps!"
"When we pull up in the morning, Zac points out the kids and/or coaches he might know. He gets out of the car psyched up for the activities. At pick up the coaches are still smiling and greet the parents/guardians with a huge welcome. It's refreshing! Then around the corner comes Zac beaming from his day
Such a cool feeling for parents! As a recruiter for a large corporation, I seek talent that also possesses a great personality and these coaches are really great. I'd be happy to see their resumes come across my desk in the future! Thank you to everyone (administrators, leaders and coaches) who have made this week so enjoyable for our family! You are organized, fun and a group that deserves a huge high five. We'll be back next year and can't wait. Go Sox!!!"
- Gretchen Carrolla
"Personally, I think the camp is a well oiled machine. I thought the staff (Brian, Sarah, Lauren and Alex especially) were friendly, encouraging and hardworking. I never had a single issue with communication throughout the entire week. Brian will be back - he had a megawatt smile everyday and woke up every morning talking about how much he loved camp and went to bed excited for the next day. His only complaint on Friday when I picked him up - he didn't want to leave! So please beam with pride- your program is fantastic. Thank you for providing such a positive environment for my son and his friends."
- Kerri McKinnon
"THANK YOU for the best week of the summer according to my 7 year old son! He loved every minute and you all made him feel such a part of this amazing team experience. He gained such confidence and was SO happy all the way through the week. I will be recommending this camp to all our friends and you'll see Charlie again next year!"
"Thanks again for another great year! I have to tell you, the guys who greet us in the morning at Fay from the Red Sox Camps are just awesome. They are so nice and literally had me laughing every day. I will look forward to sending both my boys next year! You guys do a fantastic job across the board!"
- Christine Rossi
"I am simply emailing to tell you what a wonderful time my son had at camp this week. The camp was well organized, the coaches were friendly, helpful and respectful and the smile on my son's face this whole week was priceless! I appreciate the effort and thought put into this camp. It was a fantastic experience for John. Thank you"
"My 6 year old son just finished up a week of Red Sox Camp at the Fay School in Southborough. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with the experiences that he had during the past week - from meeting Wally the Green Monster, the great new baseball games he learned from his coaches, the trip into Fenway, meeting Jacoby Ellsbury, being named "Team Captain" for a day, to the smaller details like the energetic greeting that he got each morning at drop off ("Are you ready to rock, Peter?"). This past week was truly one of the best weeks of his life and also a special week for our entire family. We have ordered tickets and are looking forward to the camp reunion at Fenway in August. We are already planning ahead for next summer's camp experience! Excellent job Red Sox Camp, congratulations on a job well done!"
- Heather Smith
"This is the first time I have ever sent my son to any kind of summer camp and I could not have chosen a better one! His experience gets better by the day! The camp is run so efficiently with such a great staff we can't wait for our younger son and our nephews to go next year! It has been such an ego boost for his baseball skills, he comes home every night and makes us run him through the drills. We also love that you apply the behavior to the field and the home, Nik asks me every night how he can be a better "home captain." To top it off, he got to meet the man after whom he named his Hermit Crab - Jacoby Ellsbury. Thank you!"
- Karen Solomon
"My five year old son was overjoyed by his week at Red Sox camp. It truly was a magical experience for him and we hope to do it every summer. My husband and I were very impressed with the professionalism and courteousness of the coaches. If the camp was closer to our home we would have sent him for more than one week. Our commute was over 2 hours to the camp each day but was worth every minute. Additionally we feel it was a great value for the special experience (and extras!) that he received. We highly recommend this experience!"
- Amy Dowd
"We traveled from Atlanta to attend this camp, and I couldn't have made a better choice for my 8-yr old. From the time we arrived, the staff knew him by name and made him feel special. As an avid Red Sox fan, the trip to Fenway and interaction with Wally and the player made this camp a real treat. He actually celebrated his birthday at camp as well! The instruction was great, fun and not overly competitive. He can't wait to return next summer."
- Cicley Gay
"Overall I thought it was an amazing camp for a kid who loves baseball and the Boston Red Sox. We traveled from Connecticut for this camp. To see Bob come home every night from camp excited about the day he had and the events of the next day was wonderful."
- Melissa Holland
"My son Jesse had a wonderful time at camp this week and is begging me to sign him up for another week! I wanted to let you know how impressed we were with how organized the camp was. Whenever I asked a coach a question or to remind Jesse of something, they made sure it happened each time. There are not many camps around that take the time and effort to help parents feel comfortable in the way that you have. Jesse has been telling our entire family and neighborhood about how he was able to go onto the field and "jump against the Green Monster" and how Wally tried to steal his lunch! I can't tell you how special a memory this will be for him for many years to come - thank you for making this "magic" happen!"
- Audrey Hedoquest
"I just wanted to say how much my son enjoyed this past week at your Red Sox camp at Belmont Hill School! Your camp was extremely well organized and the instructors and staff were all very friendly and helpful. We have been to many camps in the area but never to one this well organized and exciting each day. Also, I wanted to thank you for allowing his him to be on the same team as his friend Sean. Sean is moving out of town in a few weeks and it meant a great deal for the boys to spend time together at camp. The photo of them, standing side by side at Fenway, is one that he'll always treasure. I'm so glad that my friend told me about your camp, hopefully, you'll be seeing Tyler again soon!"
