"I think it is very important for every young athlete to have a summer camp experience, as it is an opportunity for them to study their craft and learn about the game from experienced coaches," said Freeney. "The goal of my camp is to help young athletes help themselves by stressing the fundamentals of the game and the importance of education."

Each day at the Dwight Freeney Camp, campers attend a life skills education seminar where a panel of current NFL players and coaches lecture on personal life experiences, including how to become a complete student-athlete. Freeney, current Colts players, other professional football players, collegiate and high school coaches, will instruct both in the classroom and on the field. With 10:1 camper-to-coach-ratio, and a complement of professional counselors, campers receive the individualized attention and instruction.

The Dwight Freeney Foortball Camp was founded by Dwight Freeney of the Indianapolis Colts. The camp's main office is based in Phoenix, AZ. Freeney founded the camp based on his commitment to give back to Indiana Communities by providing young football players with this one of a kind experience. The camp hosts 250 children for four nights and five days of full contact football. With coaches from the NFL, the top regional colleges, and top high schools campers receive premium instruction both on and off the field.
