Kids & Pros work closely with the Atlanta Falcons to offer special camps in the summer for children in need.
In 2016, Kids & Pros worked with the Atlanta Falcons to run three special NFL Flag Football Clinics this summer for inner city athletes.
Designed specifically for boys and girls ages 5-17, NFL FLAG leagues are community-based, and can be a great option for boys and girls interested in participating in the sport of football without the contact.

In past years, Kids & Pros hosted CAMP EQUIP, funded by the Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation, a week-long football camp for boys and special basketball camp for girls called Camp Equip. Kids & Pros Co-Founders and former Atlanta Falcons, Buddy Curry and Bobby Butler incorporate safe tackling techniques into the camp along with character based lessons. Curry, a Master Trainer with USA Football, uses the safe, non-contact football instruction to teach campers the right way to play and how to avoid injuries, like concussions. Camp instructors include current and retired NFL players who provide hands-on teaching of skill fundamentals, as well as position-specific training. The basketball camp was specifically targeted to girls age 7 – 13 and teaches them basic basketball skills along with character-based lessons.
On the final day of camp, Kids & Pros hosts a festival to promote healthy lifestyle choices to the campers and their parents. The festival exposes campers and their families to the various organizations in the Atlanta community that promote positive and healthy lifestyle choices. Vendors participating in the festival provide information on positive and healthy lifestyle choices including nutrition, environment, social issues, health, and more.
