The Mount Union football staff is in its 19th consecutive year of hosting residential football camps. Our camps have earned the reputation of being excellent techinque camps and well organized. Many of our campers are repeat attendees and many of our current players attend the camp.

All camp activities take place on Mount Union's beautiful 115-acre campus located on Route 62 in Alliance, Ohio. Techniques and drills specific to each campers position will be worked on by a Mount Union position coach. A major draw for these camps is the one-on-one interaction that campers get from coaches.

Camp instructional sessions are conducted on a newly installed FieldTurf surface in Mount Union Stadium or on one of the well manicured natural grass practice fields on campus. Each camper also gets access to the Gulling Training Center, a state-of-the-art training facility adjacent to Mount Union Stadium that is used for strength and conditioning for all Mount Union student-athletes.

Campers will enjoy recreation activities in the evening along with open swimming, highlight videos, speakers and campers have the opportunity to buy pizza and sports drinks at the concession stand.
