Minnesota Vikings Players Given Grants For Youth Football Camps

According to a release from the National Football League, over $600,000 was given to 214 current and former NFL players so that they could conduct youth football camps over the summer. With so many players, it only makes sense that a few members of the Minnesota Vikings are a part of that generosity.

Former Vikings linebacker E.J. Henderson. . .and, yes, it's still weird referring to him as "former". . .held a camp in Minneapolis last month. Rookie tight end Rhett Ellison has already had his camp, as it took place yesterday in Houston, Texas. One member of the team still has a camp upcoming, as linebacker Jasper Brinkley will be hosting a camp in Thomson, Georgia on July 13.

As far as camps that are taking place in the nearby area, former Vikings' cornerback John Swain will be holding a camp in Minneapolis on July 14. Finally, former Buffalo Bill (and the pride of Oakes, North Dakota) Phil Hansen will be holding a trio of camps in the upper Midwest over the next few weeks. Hansen will be hosting a camp in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota on July 24, moving on to Fargo, North Dakota on August 6, and concluding with a camp in Wahpeton, North Dakota on August 13.

So, if you're looking for a football camp for your kids, there are still plenty of them out there. You can find a list on the NFL Youth Football Fund's website to see which camps hosted by which current and former players are coming up in your area.
