History and Overview of Camp

For more than 20 years, Sports Adventures has specialized in turning the fantasy of playing professional sports into reality. We have produced sports fantasy camps and events for professional franchises, including, The Boston Red Sox, Minnesota Twins, Baltimore Orioles, New England Patriots and Marquee Legends including, Brooks Robinson, Johnny Bench, Harmon Killebrew, Wayne Gretzky, Phil Esposito and more.

Many people have dreamt of playing professional basketball, baseball, football, or hockey, but the vast majority were never given the opportunity. Sports Adventures provides the next best thing.

Upon arrival at a Sports Adventures event, participants enjoy a welcome banquet and receive all of the information required for their stay. The participants are placed on several different teams and compete for a championship title throughout the course of the camp. Teams are coached by former pros and spend time on and off the field with their coaches, teammates and other campers.

Event Hotels are well appointed and there are a number of inclusive social events planned for campers throughout the week. There is usually also time allotted to explore and enjoy local attractions on your own or with new found friends.

While attending a Sports Adventures event, participants will enjoy the same playing conditions and amenities provided to their professional counterparts. These amenities include professional playing surfaces and venues, MLB uniforms, clubhouses, trainers, as well as access to several former professional athletes. 

In addition, Sports Adventures has worked very hard to compile a group of celebrities that are both popular, and sociable. The access to and camaraderie with our celebrity coaches, and attention to detail throughout the week creates an authenticity that is unmatched by other camps and truly sets us apart from other Fantasy Camp experiences.
