More than 3,000 youth will take part in the seventh annual NFL Play 60 Character Camps this summer. The camps are part of the NFL's year-round Hispanic outreach initiative, which offers young people the chance to play and experience the game of football.
The NFL has partnered with Hall of Fame offensive tackle, Anthony Muñoz, and several NFL clubs to host 12 NFL PLAY 60 Character Camps throughout the country. The camps' mission is to make a positive impact on youth through teaching football skills and reinforcing the importance of character in athletics and life.
“Unlike camps that focus simply on football, these take it to the next level,” said Anthony Muñoz, Founder of the Anthony Muñoz Foundation. “We use football as a platform, but bring more into it including team building and character traits. It is how I was taught as a kid growing up in Southern California and I'm proud to pass that on to today's youth."
The camps will teach character values that are core to the Anthony Muñoz Foundation and promote NFL PLAY 60's health and fitness message. The program works in collaboration with USA Football and its NFL FLAG curriculum.
