…it’s also the BIG day for the ProCamps Ben Roethlisberger Youth Fantasy Experience!
The camp will be held on Sunday, June 18th, 2017 at the Steelers Practice Facility.
Boys & girls, grades 1-8, will be working on their football skills on the same fields that the Steelers players work on theirs!
This one day camp is similar to a “two-a-day,” running from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM and 12:30 PM – 3:00 PM with a lunch break in between sessions.
And we can only imagine what Ben and the folks at ProCamps have in store for the fathers and grandfathers who take the field on this special Sunday!
Last year the camp was also held on Father’s Day weekend, and there was a special Dads-Edition of the 40-yard dash. About 30 fathers came down to the field to race, and only one injury — a pulled hamstring — came out of it:

@_BigBen7 @ProCamps @SunnyDelight Just met Big Ben!! The pulled hamstring was worth it for meeting him and running for my son!
And of course, throughout the day, Big Ben and his coaches will offer tips and hands-on instruction, including lectures, fundamental football skills stations, contests, and non-contact games in a high-energy, fun, and positive environment. Young campers will be placed in small groups by age to ensure that each child gets maximum instruction. Ben and ProCamps are both committed to providing your child with the experience of a lifetime at an affordable price.
“We do a lot of quarterback drills, some receiver drills, and a little bit of running back stuff, but mostly just catching and throwing.” — Ben.
But the man who wears the #7 insists that the more important lesson to teach at his camp is sportsmanship.
“Just a second ago, I was throwing passes and a kid dropped it and one of his teammates said, ‘It’s OK, you’ll get the next one,’” he said. “So to hear that kind of stuff already is just great.” — Ben, during last year’s camp.
