Looking for a way to get your kid out of your hair for a few days? We’re sure a few professional baseball players and coaches could keep them busy.


The Gwinnett Stripers, the Atlanta Braves’ AAA minor league team, are holding a camp for kids ages 7 to 14 from July 17 to July 19. The three-day baseball camp will allow young sports enthusiasts to learn skills from the pros, get autographs from potential future stars and see a minor league game.

Campers will work on baseball skills from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. each day, capping the half-day program with an included lunch. On the last day, July 19, they will get to participate in a pregame parade before watching the Stripers take on the Indianapolis Indians. Each camper will get two box seats to the game.

The program costs $125, and kids must be registered by July 9. Both boys and girls are welcome to attend. Find the application here.
