NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Interested in going back to college for a couple days? And, waking up the echoes at the same time?

Well, if so, the 2011 Notre Dame Football Fantasy Camp is for you. The camp not only enables you to live out your childhood Irish football fantasies as an adult, but also will completely immerse you back into the collegiate atmosphere.

The Notre Dame Football Fantasy Camp will be directed by Irish head coach Brian Kelly, as well as his entire Notre Dame coaching staff, current Irish players and plenty of other former Notre Dame legends. They will provide daily hands-on instruction and interaction. They also will share priceless personal experiences from their time under the Golden Dome and in the NFL.

Camp dates are Tuesday, May 31, through Saturday, June 4, 2011. You will stay at the Fairfield Inn & Suites located across the street from campus and adjacent to the new Eddy Street Commons, and mere steps from the shadow of Notre Dame Stadium.

The Notre Dame Football Fantasy Camp will allow you to develop a personal and active association with all of the Irish football facilities – including Notre Dame Stadium, Guglielmino Athletics Complex, Isban Auditorium, Haggar Varsity Fitness Center, Morse Recruiting Lounge, LaBar Practice Complex, Monogram Room, Naimoli Family Club Room in Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center, Schivarelli Alumni Players’ Lounge, Basilica of the Sacred Heart and many other notable facilities around the historic campus.

You will become a Notre Dame football player. You will go through all the practices, training tables and meetings during the week. On Blue/Gold game day, you will dress in the Notre Dame Stadium locker room donning authentic ND gear head to toe – from the famous gold helmets to adidas cleats. After mass and the traditional pre-game speech, you will slap the “Play Like A Champion” sign and sprint out of the tunnel onto the field at Notre Dame Stadium in front of family, friends and fans.

You will be provided with all practice and game apparel, as well as other Notre Dame memorabilia and gifts, including a team photo and keepsake DVD from the Blue-Gold Fantasy Football Game to relive the memories.

Cost for this year’s camp is $4,995. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Notre Dame Monogram Club. The Notre Dame Monogram Club provides support to current student-athletes and engages both former and current student-athletes in service, scholarship, support, recognition and fellowship and to maintain the rich tradition and legacy of Notre Dame Athletics.
