The camp, which offers overnight and day camp options, will be held at the University of St. Thomas St. Paul campus and will feature Minnesota Vikings starting outside linebacker Ben Leber.

The camp is designed for players ages 7 to 18 and will feature daily instruction, lectures and demonstrations by Leber and members of the Minnesota Vikings. The college and high school coaches on staff will give instruction on both offense and defense.

Football newcomers and seasoned players alike will experience teamwork, self-discipline, the selection of correct role models and how to attain their sports and life potential. Even though this is not an “autograph camp,” members of the Vikings will be available for autographs.

Leber’s 46 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and a forced fumble in 2009 helped lead the Vikings to a 12-4 record and win the NFC North title. He was part of the NFL’s No. 1-ranked rushing defense from  2006-2008.
