The camp is open to students entering grades 9 through 12 in July 2015. In accordance with NCAA regulations, a high school graduate is ineligible to attend a summer camp of this sort. All MHSAA guidelines for sports camps will be observed.

Individual Instruction

The camp will be staffed at the ratio of approximately one coach for each 7 to 10 campers by Coach Kreps, the entire coaching staff of Hope College and by outstanding high school coaches. Individual attention will be emphasized.

Team Offense & Defense

Come as an individual or participate as a team unit! The development of individual skills is the primary objective of the camp experience. Football is a TEAM game. Such team concepts as how to read defensive sets, how to play zone defense, team passing concepts, and how to read offensive keys will be stressed. There will be a daily passing league.

Developing Football Interest

Our most important objective is to build desire within each camper. Desire is built through lectures, intensive drills, and competition. The pace is quick and demanding, but you will return home with increased knowledge and a greater desire to become a top player.

What to bring to camp

Sneakers, grass football shoes, 6 T-shirts, 6 pairs of shorts, 6 pairs of socks, 3 supporters, swim trunks, toiletries, underwear, towels, and bed linens. A fan is optional, but a good idea.

Lodging & Meals

Campers will be housed in residence halls, located on the campus. These rooms provide comfort and enjoyment consistent with quality living conditions. Meals are served in our all-you-can-eat cafeteria.


Each camper is responsible for his own transportation to and from Hope College. Campers who drive themselves must turn in their keys to the camp director after unloading their belongings at the residence hall. Their keys will be returned on Tuesday afternoon. Failure to turn in keys may result in dismissal from the camp.
