Maple Avenue Elementary School Students take part in Packers Outreach Camp

Second through fourth grade students at Maple Avenue Elementary had the opportunity to experience a fun afternoon of physical activity and team building while taking part in the Green Bay Packers Football Outreach Camp on Friday, September 29.

“This was the first time Maple hosted this camp and our students had a blast,” said Maple Avenue Fitness Education Teacher Chris Totero. “It was a great opportunity to get the students outside and increase their heart rates during the school day. Seeing the smiles on the students’ faces and the support they were giving each other was really fantastic!”

The five drill camp allows students to dive for a touchdown, kick a ball, leap for a catch and participate in a relay race.

The Green Bay Packers Football Outreach Camp is a complimentary, grassroots program, which features educational benefits as well as recreational opportunities for kids in a safe and fun environment. The camp is designed for second through fifth graders. Football Outreach Camps are coordinated in conjunction with the NFL PLAY 60 program. NFL PLAY 60 is designed to tackle childhood obesity by getting kids active through in-school, after-school and team-based programs.

“I had a lot of students come afterwards and tell me how much fun they had. Even the students that were hesitant to participate because they didn’t know anything about football or how to play had a great time,” added Totero.
