The Ron Burton Training Village Program is a reflection of the man who designed it, lived it, and passed it on. Ron Burton, Sr., had a dream to start a camp where kids would come to train and attain personal growth in such a way as to succeed in every facet of life. This success, he knew, was far more important than success on a football field. Even as the number one draft choice of the NFL, AFL, and Canadian Football League and the first draft choice of the New England Patriots, Ron, Sr., realized it was his positive lifestyle that helped him succeed even more than his physical training. His life was, and his legacy continues to be, a beacon of guidance and light.
The mission of the Ron Burton Training Village is to enrich the lives of challenged youth in the areas of dynamic character and leadership development, physical fitness, social and educational advancement, and spiritual growth.
Our vision is to be an organization that supports the development of the entire human being.
We equip young people with the skills, resources, and attitude to make winning decisions in life. Our programs are designed to build the core values of love, peace, patience, and humility.
The Boston Red Sox and the Ron Burton Training Village have joined forces to create an exciting youth outreach program which affords the opportunity for young boys and girls to attend a fellowship retreat. This retreat weekend is designed to spiritually, physically, educationally and socially teach and motivate children to be exceptional human beings not only in their homes and schools but in their communities as well.
