PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) -C.H.A.M.P. camp is making its way back to Bay County. Last year, the camp was cancelled due to the pandemic, but Champ Kelly, the President of Heart Power, Inc., the organization that hosts the camp, is excited to bring it back.

“We want nothing more than to spend time with you [participants],” said Kelly. “It’s just as important for us, as coaches, as it is for those campers that are coming to participate, and it’s much larger than football. Football is strictly the avenue, but we look forward to giving back and just investing, enjoying each other, spending time together, getting better at our craft, but also just learning how we can make better decisions in all that we do. Talking, communicating, having fun, being together, that’s what it’s all about, and we are excited to do it this summer.”

Kelly is from Campbellton, FL, in Jackson County, and went to the University of Kentucky on a football scholarship. Currently, he is the assistant director of Player Personnel for the Chicago Bears, and before that, he was the Bears Director of Pro Scouting.

The camp is two-days of non-contact training for players ranging from ten to 18. For the younger players, it’s all about basics and laying the foundation for the future of their game, and for the older athletes, it’s a little more advanced skill training. But for Champ, the camp is much more than learning and advancing on the field.

“If we can give back and impact the life of one kid, one kid, then we have done enough. I work with pro guys every day of the week and I enjoy that, but I love giving back to these kids because they mean so much to me. They mean so much to us and to our future.”

The camp will run June 25-26 at Mosley. You sign up right here.
