GREEN BAY (NBC 26) — Monday marked one of several Football Outreach Camps the Green Bay Packers will host this month for local elementary students.

The camps will take place in Green Bay, Appleton, De Pere, Wind Lake and Waupaca. The Packers say the camps give elementary school students the opportunity to get active and have fun, in conjunction with the NFL Play 60 program.

The camps will each include between 150 and 300 student participants. The camps will take place on:

  • Monday, May 2, from 9:45 a.m. to noon at Pioneer Elementary in Green Bay
  • Tuesday, May 10, from 12:15 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Foster Elementary in Appleton
  • Tuesday, May 17, from 9:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. at Titletown, adjacent to Lambeau Field in Ashwaubenon (for students from Heritage Elementary)
  • Thursday, May 19, from 11:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. at Syble Hopp School in De Pere
  • Tuesday, May 24, from 11:15 a.m. to 12:20 p.m. at Lakeview Elementary in Wind Lake
  • Thursday, May 26, from 10 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. at Waupaca Early Learning Center

Packers football outreach specialist Ryan Fencl will assist with the camps, along with Packers alumnus and player/alumni specialist Tony Fisher.

The camps give boys and girls the opportunity to test their football skills in various drills and obstacle courses. Children 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 about 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.
