Broncos' Garett Bolles hosts second annual kids camp

By  | 

Colorado Springs, Colo. The second annual two-day Garett Bolles Cheer and Football Camp kicked off Thursday evening. Kids from ages 5-13 came out to Don Breese Stadium at Lewis Palmer High School to run drills and hang out with Bolles.

"Southern Colorado always plays a special part in my heart. I love everybody here. I love the community, I love the people, everyone is so nice, so anytime I get to give back and come out here and be with the kids and see the parents and see how happy they are that I am out here working with them it's just awesome. It is a great community to be apart of and hopefully I am here for a long time."

The 2017 first round draft pick partnered with Pikes Peak Pop Warner Little Scholars and South Colorado Springs Nissan to assist in hosting his camp. Bolles who suffers with ADHD started these camps as a way to give back to the community.

"This is always awesome," Bolles said. "Anytime I can give back to the community of Colorado, the place that is home to me now. When I play for the Broncos and see kids all the time coming to our games and anytime I can give back to them, it's awesome, it puts a smile on my face for sure."

The camp consists of high intensity, hands-on instruction, fundamental football and cheer skills stations, contests, and non-contact competitions in a high-energy, fun, and positive environment.

Bolles biggest message of the day to the kids is just to walk away being able to do the little things but being able to do them well and when they are asked.

"Details. It is just details. Details is everything in your life," Bolles said. "If their mom or dad tells them to clean their room, they want them to clean their room and not throw everything under their bed. So it is the same thing out here. You can learn about details about doing everything right every single day and if you do that, your life is going to be great."

The camp will continue Friday, June 7, from 5-8 p.m.
