VU Football to Host Future Star Camp; Faculty and Staff Receive 15 Percent Discount

Vanderbilt Football has set up a special opportunity for families to share a unique football experience on Father's Day weekend with its inaugural Future Star/Parent & Child Camp, which will take place on Saturday, June 18.

Rising first- through eighth-graders of all ability levels and their parents are invited to join the Vanderbilt coaching staff as they develop and teach skills and techniques at all positions. Campers will also compete in the fast-paced game of Dore-Ball, putting their newly acquired skills into practice while learning the value of teamwork.

"Our football program is excited to offer the community this dynamic camp," Commodore Head Football Coach James Franklin said. "Very few camps offer the chance for parents, guardians and/or family members to not only go to camp with their children, but also participate in the activities. This will be a special experience for all involved, and we hope to make it an annual tradition."

The $55 registration fee covers optional participation by the camper's parent or guardian, teaching and instruction, fluids and snacks, end-of-camp awards and a camp T-shirt. Participants may register online  or in person on the day of the camp. All Vanderbilt faculty and staff participants receive a 15 percent registration discount.
