Jacob's Soccer Camp 2018


Jacob's Soccer Camp & Fun Bunch Soccer



  

 Jacob's Soccer Camp 2016, Richard Montgomery High School
                                                       Jacob’s Soccer Camp was originally started by Jacob Cohen, a youth soccer player from Philadelphia, PA.  During his time volunteering at the Variety Club in Philadelphia, Jacob observed that many of the physically or developmentally challenged children he was working with demonstrated a real enjoyment of the game of soccer and he felt that these kids would likely enjoy the opportunity to receive more specialized training.  At the same time, he felt that many of his soccer friends would gain a great deal of satisfaction and enjoyment out of helping other kids.

 


 

Hale Lieberman (BSC 2000 Blue) learned about Jacob’s Camp in Philadelphia and was so inspired by the concept that he took on the task of starting the first Jacob’s Camp outside of Pennsylvania.  With field time and equipment donated by Bethesda Soccer Club, last year’s first run of Jacob’s Camp in Bethesda was a rousing success.  This coming summer, Hale is looking forward to growing the camp to include the Bethesda Soccer Club Fun Bunch players as well as other campers with disabilities, in addition to more volunteers.


“Volunteering at Jacob’s Camp is very rewarding and a great environment to make new friends.  Each volunteer is paired with a physically or developmentally disabled child, and has the opportunity to build an unforgettable relationship with that camper during the course of the week.  It's a great way to leverage Bethesda Soccer’s training for community service.”

 

This year, Jacob’s Camp runs from June 25 - June 29 at Wootton High School.  Campers are signing up now and volunteers are needed every day from 9am - Noon ET for the camp.  For more information on Jacob’s Camp including camper sign-up, click here.  To sign-up as a volunteer at Jacob’s Camp click here.
