Dare to Play Football & Dare to Cheer Game Day @ CU

October 6, 2018

The Dare to Play Football Camp is affiliated, and runs simultaneously, with the Dare to Cheer Camp with the CU Buffs. The camp provides individuals with Down syndrome (males and females) ages 7 and up the opportunity to learn core touch football skills and team-building activities. The Dare to Play Football camp is a collaboration between Global and the University of Colorado football team and is held on the University of Colorado Boulder campus. Each camper is paired with a CU football player for one-on-one attention, assistance and fun.

The camp consists of 3 practices and culminates in a football scrimmage and cheer performance during a home football game at Folsom Field in Boulder, with thousands of fans in attendance. At the game, the campers are paired with a college student from the Sigma Nu fraternity for extra support.
