Fun day hanging with @_BigBen7 and @ProCamps


“This was our grandson’s 3rd year at Ben’s Football Camp. He is 9-years old and we have seen him mature over the summers because of the camp. This year, his sister was too old to participate, and he sort of missed her, but got to spend time with us. Since we are all from Ohio, and it’s a 3-hour drive to the camp, we enjoyed our time alone with him. We highly recommend that grandparents bring their grandkids and leave the parents at home! Since this was a one-day camp, we really enjoyed the quiet time the next morning as we got packed and drove home. He even got to use his McDonalds french fry coupon he received at the camp on the Ohio Turnpike! There are lots of Steelers fans where we live in Toledo and Cleveland, so he loves to show off the pictures his grandfather takes at the camp.” — Don & Linda Hawk

@_BigBen7 @MaxMcHale1 had a great time at camp! #fromNeshannock


“What an amazing time! Our son, Derek Sanderson, Jr., is a huge fan of Ben. We signed him up for the camp and kept it a surprise until we arrived at camp on Monday. He did not believe us at first, but when he saw the man himself on the field, he could not stop smiling. This was our son’s first time attending camp and we look forward to attending every year. Very well organized and the fact that Ben took time to personally throw passes, was worth the trip! Thank you Ben, ProCamp and the Steelers!” — Virgen Perez & Derek Sanderson Sr.


“You do a wonderful thing for kids every year…thank you” — Donna Korchok DiebeLblauner

“I had a great time again this year working with Ben to photograph his Procamps youth football camp at Seneca H.S. in Harmony PA. Ben has such a tremendous interest in helping the kids that attend to understand the importance of working together as a team. The positive impact he has on these young lives is intangible. Great job Ben on your 7th annual camp!” — Fred Vero, Fred Vero Photography


You can see many more photos here (6 pages worth)!
