It was cold, it was foggy and for a short time it even drizzled. The first weekend of summer was ultimately dreary for most of West San Francisco but you couldn't tell by the smiles on the faces of the 300+ kids at Colin Kaepernick's ProCamps weekend. 

Once a year Kaepernick gives the kids at ProCamps unfettered access with him to work on their football skills, ask questions and just have fun. It's a two day camp for kids grades 1-8 where they are broken up into small groups by age. The day begins with warm ups and position drills and concludes with two hand touch games. 

ProCamps is a complete marvel at organizing the 300+ kids that attend each camp. By the end of the two days, each camper has had one on one interaction with the athlete featured at the camp. 

In Kaepernick's third annual camp, he threw a pass, handed off, high fived, and huddled up with every kid in attendance. Parents were allowed to watch from the stands at St. Ignatius College Preparatory as their kids learned from the many coaches, Kaepernick included. 

Along with honing their football skills, the kids get great messages from Kaepernick, and the coaches and staff of ProCamps. When asked what he would tell his 'younger self' to do better, Kaepernick replied he 'would tell his younger self to have a better attitude.' He also talked to the campers about competition and overcoming adversity and challenges in life. 

The most notable aspect about Kapepernick when at his camp is his relaxed demeanor and permanent ear to ear grin. The usually stoic and quiet QB laughed and joked with the campers and at one point even explained spider 2Y banana. (Gruden would have been proud) He talked to the older kids about the read option and how to hold the football correctly during the process. At the risk of sounding like a promotional commercial for Kaepernick, it would be fantastic if more of the football world could see him with the kids of ProCamps, he still doesn't get tired, but he's also having a great time during the journey.

Nice article. Too many people are holding on to those old cliches about young quarterbacks when they talk about Kaepernick, but he's gonna have a great year this year.
