C.J. Ham will hold his popular youth football camp at his alma mater Duluth Denfeld and registration is open.

The 3rd Annual C.J. Ham Youth Football Camp will be held this Summer on June 11th at Duluth Denfeld High School Football Stadium. This will be the 3rd year of the camp and fills up fast. The event is presented by Minnesota Vikings Pro Bowl Full Back C.J. Ham and the IFA.

According to the Eventbrite website, the event is open to 350 kids between the ages of 6 and 14. The 1st through 4th-grade camp will be from 10 am to noon, then the 5th through 8th-grade camp will be from 1 pm to 3 pm.

The write-up on the Eventbrite website says the camp will include things that C.J. Ham feels are important to be successful in football at any level and some skills as well. There will be one-on-one football instruction and also a focus on character development, leadership, and sportsmanship. Participants will receive hands-on training from some of the region’s most experienced players and coaches, while also being taught valuable life skills such as teamwork and dedication.

C.J. Ham will hold off-field conversations about leadership, work ethic, and education. As well as pointers leading to a healthy and successful life. One of C.J.’s main objectives in his initiative to give back is to ensure that each child believes in themselves. Something he finds leads to success along with sharpening their skills.

According to the website, proceeds will go towards diversity scholarships in the Duluth area which is something C.J. Ham is proud of.

To be eligible for 1st-4th Grade Camp, you must be in 1st grade through 4th grade during the 2022-2023 school year. To be eligible for the 5th-8th Grade Camp, you must be in 5th grade through 8th grade during the 2022-2023 school year. Participants will be divided into groups based on age and/or skill level. There are only 175 spaces so time is of the essence.

Kids are asked to bring shorts, T-shirts, and either tennis shoes or cleats, and prepare to work hard. Also, any kids participating must have medical insurance. You must also complete the consent and participation waiver to participate in the camp.

Every kid that registers will get:

  • Camp T-Shirt
  • On-the-field instruction by coaches
  • Signed C.J. Ham Autograph Card
  • Water and snacks will also be provided

This is something that I have always been proud of C.J. Ham. He is still involved in this community and remembers where he came from and always gives back.
