(Posted May 11, 2001)

HUNTINGDON, Pa. -- The Juniata College football program will be running a total of three football camps this coming summer. The camps will run through June and the early portion of July.

A series of camps on College Hill will feature a "The Team Camp" on the weekend of June 15-17 for high school football teams. The Juniata College football team camp will have a host of college coaches on hand, just like all of the football camps offered by Juniata. The schedule of activity will have teams competing with seven-on-seven scrimmages, as well as inside run periods for linemen/linebackers. In addition, those in attendance will participate in optional instructional sessions for each position on the gridiron provided by all of the collegiate coaches on hand and they will be given team practice time. High school coaches on hand will also benefit from instructional clinics that will be provided each night of the camp. The price of the team camp, $150, includes six meals and two nights of lodging for the campers.

"The Quarterback/Receiver Camp" is targeted at players (grades 8 - 12) who are or who aspire to be receivers, defensive backs and quarterbacks. The camp will focus on each position and run one evening per week for three consecutive weeks. The dates of the sessions are June 7, June 13 and June 19. Campers will be given plenty of attention during each of the two-hour sessions (6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.). Cost for the camp is $40 or $15 per session.

"The Individual Camp" offers and intimate setting where attention to each camper will be a priority. The camp will focus on strengthening each individual's fundamental skills, while offering a workout each day that will help enhance each athlete's performance during the upcoming season. In addition to learning football skills, every camper will be exposed to the strength and conditioning program at Juniata. The three-day session July 6-8) is targeted for those in grades 8 - 12. There will be two workout sessions on Friday, three on Saturday and two on Sunday before the camp ends. The price of the camp ($150) includes six meals and two nights of lodging for the campers.
