During the camp, athletes will be divided into small groups for offensive and defensive instruction and will be coached by volunteer college coaches representing schools from Ohio and surrounding states. Ohio State head coach Jim Tressel will be the featured guest speaker and address the campers after lunch.

All proceeds from the camp benefit Lauren's First and Goal Foundation, which provides financial support for brain tumor research and cancer services, offers financial and emotional support to families living with pediatric cancer, and increases awareness of the disease. The foundation is named after 13-year-old Lauren Loose, whose father John is the defensive coordinator for the Lafayette College football team.
The foundation held its annual camp at Lafayette College in Easton, Pa. on June 6 where camper donations totaled more than $67,000. For the year, the foundation has received more than $213,000 in donations, including a $100,000 commitment from the Center for Special Needs Trust Administration. With the proceeds from the camp, the foundation has raised more than $1 million since its creation in 2004.
