Camp Week 2!

While many people are just focusing on one thing, our players continue to be renaissance men who are both focused on Football, Academic Development, Community Service/Engagement, and growing in general. We have been VERY busy during the first 10 days of camp!

Here are some updates:

On Monday of last week, for the second year in a row, the guys trained with the HEROES of Ruck Endure. Being lead in physical training, team building, and other activities by Navy Seals continues to help the brotherhood of our program grow. Here is a short video displaying some of the activities!

On Thursday, the guys participated in the annual Twitter Scavenger Hunt (#TheHunt) after dinner at local restaurants (no chains) the boys navigated Lake County to fulfill the requirements for the event. Here are some of the highlights:

It was a great evening out and about for out guys-- their creativity was spectacular.

On Monday evening last week, the boys did a great shift at Feed My Starving Children, a charitable organization in Libertyville that has a strong connection with the LFC Community.

Here is a brief video and some pictures:

On Friday, despite the threat (and eventual arrival) of Thunder and Lightning, the Foresters helped with Freshman move-in day. This assistance helped get all incoming students into their dorms with a helping and caring friend. Proud of our guys, they definitely made a great first impression!

Just in case you forgot what it was like when you moved your son in-- here is a video to remind you!

Most guys had the true highlight of their camp this morning when Ruben returned to the cafeteria and opened his world famous "Omelette station."
