The 2nd & 7 Foundation Virtual Football Camp is free to all kids to enjoy football drills, contests and motivational speakers, with a focus on FUN.
We started our football camp 20 years ago out of a deep passion for football, paying it forward, and most importantly as a way to raise funds to support the mission of The 2nd & 7 Foundation.
Suddenly, COVID-19 has presented unfathomable and unprecedented challenges to all of our lives. Like you, the 2nd & 7 staff, board members, volunteers and coaches are all feeling the effects of this virus in one way or another. It’s been tough for everyone.
One thing that we continue to fall back on is gratitude. We are grateful for the joy and inspiration that you, our campers, have brought to our lives for the past 20 years. We are grateful to the parents for the loyalty and support we have felt from you during these difficult times. We are grateful to the teachers and administrators who continue to work selflessly to make sure that their students feel safe and cared for while learning from home. We are grateful to our sponsors and volunteers who have stood by our side in unshakable dedication to our mission to provide free books and positive role models to kids in need.
We have an extraordinary huddle.
Gratitude is what leads us forward and is what has motivated us to present to you The 2nd & 7 Foundation's first ever Virtual Football Camp. While we would prefer to be with all of you in person this summer, we know that your health and safety is the most important thing right now and we're not taking any chances. Our team is working on a camp website that will include fundamental drills and training, guest speakers, and even a virtual 'goodie bag.' We will also have a gear shop that will include the annual camp shirt, hats, socks, shorts and more.
Thank you for your patience and understanding, and stay tuned to our website and social media for more information.
We are truly all in this together. One Team. One Huddle.
--Your Friends at The 2nd & 7 Foundation

Yes, we will be able to give you a portion of your camp registration fee back BUT there is a non-refundable processing fee of $10. Please give us your name and mailing address so we can send you the refund.
We will try our best to accommodate requests on the first day of camp, but no guarantees can be made. We do not take requests prior to the first day of camp.
Your child should bring a water bottle with his/her name on it. (Water will be provided.) Your camper should wear shorts and a short sleeve shirt with his/her name on it. Some kids wear cleats but they are not mandatory. THERE ARE NO PADS AT THIS CAMP!
If this is the case, please seek out one of the camp volunteers and we will make sure that your child gets the proper snack and lunch during that time. It would be helpful for you to bring a snack if your child's allergy is severe.
THERE WILL BE NO OUTSIDE AUTOGRAPHS! The last day of camp, we will allow each camper to have one of the camp items (either the shirt or football that is provided) signed by the coaches. At that time, campers can try to take a photo but we ask that each camper respect the others, as everyone wants to get autographs on the final day.
We always leave this up to the parents. This is a non-contact camp and the children are divided into age-specific teams. As long as your child is comfortable being away from mom or dad for a few hours, they'll be fine! And please remember, parents and guests are always welcome to stay and watch.
To promote reading by providing free books and positive role models to kids in need while encouraging young athletes of the community to pay it forward.
The 2nd & 7 Foundation was founded in 1999 by three former OSU football players – Luke Fickell, Ryan Miller and Mike Vrabel - who wanted to continue to give back to their community. Since 1999, The 2nd & 7 Foundation has given away over 400,000 books to kids in need all across the country.
The 'Tackling Illiteracy' reading program began in central Ohio and is now being implemented in communities all over the nation. As a part of this program, college or high school student-athletes visit 2nd graders in local elementary schools to read to them, talk about the importance of their education and give every child a free book to take home. The focus is on schools with high populations of students on free or reduced lunch plans or communities that need it the most. A donation of just $25 allows us to ship 120 books to a school anywhere in the country.
