JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas —
Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph is one of the 11 military communities chosen to host the 2017 ProCamps football events for boys and girls.
JBSA-Randolph will host Terrance Williams, a wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, June 26-27. Day 1 of the camp will run from 1-4 p.m. Day 2 will run from 9 a.m.to noon. The commissary meet and greet will be at 4:30 p.m June 26.
The winning installations qualified for a camp based on purchases of select items at commissaries. The two-day events are open for first-through eighth-grade youth of active-duty military, reservists, retirees and Department of Defense civilian employees.
“We are so excited to announce this year’s ProCamps locations,” said Sallie Cauthers, Defense Commissary Agency’s marketing and mass media specialist. “Our communities, especially the children, benefit from our partnership with industry that brings these football stars to their installations.”
This marks the fifth year the National Football League Military ProCamps program has come to installations worldwide, said Molly Fanning of ProCamps. “We are so excited to continue to grow the program with top NFL athletes.”
ProCamps manages and operates sports camps around the world led by professional athletes. This year they have already conducted camps overseas for military children.
“These camps teach the fundamentals of football, teamwork and how to make new friends,” Fanning said. “By the end of summer we will have executed more than 50 camps for military youth. We are excited to continue to support military families through this program.”
