With former Chicago Bears like Robin Earl, Allan Ellis, Kris Haines, Al Harris, Jim Morrissey and Mickey Pruitt providing support, Chicago Bears Youth Football Camps will return this summer to more than 28 locations, including a camp at Elmhurst College.
Chicago Bears Youth Football Camps provide non-contact instruction to kids ages 6 to 14.
With professional coaches and Chicago Bears heroes, kids learn to run, throw, catch, defend and compete the Bears' way. All programs provide non-contact football instruction, athletic skill development, fitness and agility training.
“We are a great place for kids to learn football in a safe, well structured environment,” Executive Director Tom Finks says. “Experienced players benefit from our accelerated skills program. Newcomers gain skills and confidence from our comprehensive skills program. And we even host a significant number of kids that use our camps to cross train for sports like hockey and baseball.”
Chicago Bears Youth Football Camps trained more than 2,000 kids last summer. Bears Youth Camps plan to expand program options to meet the needs of even more kids this summer.
“We will be announcing three new programs after the first of the year. The Chicago Bears have tremendous resources and are truly committed to teaching kid through football.”
The Elmhurst Camp is Monday, June 25, through Friday, June 29, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The price is $399.
