I was invited to this event a few years ago as a media member and I came away incredibly impressed. There are dozens of volunteers working on field with kids who are kept in constant motion. Ben himself makes it a priority to visit with each child as he goes around from station to station. The highlight for these kids is the opportunity to catch a pass from Big Ben at the end of the camp. Ben throws over 400 passes!
If you’re a Steelers’ fan and/or a Big Ben fan then I highly recommend this for your kids. They’ll learn some football and have some great fun too. Its an awesome experience that they won’t soon forget!
