Packers to host Youth Football Outreach Camp at Stephenson Elementary School

Thursday's camp will have two sessions aimed at tackling childhood obesity

The Green Bay Packers will host a Youth Football Outreach Camp on Thursday, Sept. 4, for students at Stephenson Elementary School in Stephenson, Mich. The camp includes two sessions, one at 12:30 and the other at 1:45 p.m., with approximately 170 kids participating.

Packers alumnus Johnathan Franklin will assist with the camp, along with Packers youth football coordinator Tim Schroeder. Members of the media are invited to cover the event.

The Green Bay Packers Youth Football Outreach Camp program, coordinated in conjunction with the NFL Play 60 program, is complimentary and provides boys and girls the opportunity to test their football skills in various drills and obstacle courses.  Participants rotate through five drill stations (a relay race, kicking a ball, throwing a pass, leaping for a catch, and diving for a touchdown) that will last approximately 45 minutes.

The NFL PLAY 60 campaign is designed to tackle childhood obesity by getting kids active through in-school, after-school and team-based programs.
