Camp Town

There was a time when summer camps at colleges were a way for the coaches to make a little money on the side. They were overnight affairs populated for the most part by local kids looking to improve their blocking or tackling or spiral, a few alumni offspring and the occasional out-of-towner checking out the school.

These days a great many college football camps have morphed into one-day showcases that offer players a chance to show coaches what they are made of. It's not unusual for potential Ivy Leaguers to attend a handful or more Ivy camps. Some get "offers" while they are in town and some even commit.

A significant portion of the 2015 Dartmouth roster will have attended the Buddy Teevens Football Camp as well as other camps around the Ivies.

The 2014 Buddy Teevens camp was described this way online:
The skills camp is a 1 day prospect camp open to young men from rising 9th grade to rising 12th grade seniors in high school. Positions on the Offensive side of the ball are QB, RB, WR, TE and OL. On the Defensive side of the ball, positions include DB, LB, DL. Campers will be instructed and evaluated by the Dartmouth Coaching Staff and other college coaches.
