Donald Driver, a player for the Green Bay Packers, and winner of Dancing with the Stars season 14 hosted a 2-day camp for up to 500 kids free of charge. I was able to attend the camp with the kids from Star of Hope this Monday and Tuesday (June 18-19). We took a bus load of kids from ages 8-15 to Dyer Stadium where they participated in a tough, but fun camp.
There were several stations set up all over the field and the kids were grouped by age. They were able to complete each station that consisted of various drills and activities that related to football and improving and understanding the game.
Our kids had an absolute blast. We had 5 girls come between the 2 days and they did a great job keeping up with the boys. One of the coaches even told one of our girls that he was embarrassed because she beat his son at an activity and that she was doing a great job. Even though our kids were worn out from the first day, they still came back the second day and brought friends with them!
On the second day they got rained out around 10:30. Donald Driver lined all of the kids up in a line and autographed every single kids t-shirt and took pictures with them. Being able to participate in this camp meant so much for the children. I’m so thankful for organizations like the Star of Hope and the Donald Driver Foundation that stand for helping the homeless. It’s truly amazing how God works in the lives of those at the Star of Hope.
