Jason Garrett Starfish Charities​ Football Camp

21st Annual Jason Garrett Starfish Charities​ Football Camp

Jason Garrett, through Jason Garrett Starfish Charities, has teamed with AthLife Foundation to host a 1-day free, non-contact football camp at Princeton University.  Area high school student-athletes from New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania are coached by Jason Garrett, current and former NFL players and coaches, and college and area high school coaches.  There are on-field practices and games as well as a life-skills component that emphasizes the importance of making good choices both on and off the field.​

​​Camp will be held on:

Saturday, June 17, 2023  (Schedule)
9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Princeton University
Princeton, NJ

Jason Garrett Starfish Charities and AthLife Foundation teach the campers both football and life skills that will prepare them for the next season and beyond.  The purpose of the day is to inspire the student-athletes to excel on and off the field and to focus on having college on their radar screen.

Jason Garrett Starfish Charities is a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable foundation whose mission is to strive to make our community a better place by enriching the lives of its youths.

The AthLife Foundation’s charitable mission is fueled by an unwavering belief in human potential.  Its national platform works to ensure that thousands of deserving kids from challenged communities can achieve academically and compete successfully in their future careers beyond sport.​
