The Charleston Southern Buccaneers are excited to host our annual football summer camps on the campus of Charleston Southern University in the city that has been named the #1 tourist destination in the United States, Charleston, South Carolina.  The goal of our camps is to provide an exciting, positive experience for everyone involved.


The camp season kicks off with the Buccaneer Youth Football Camp, June 5-8, 2017.  The “BUCS” in training is a four-day camp designed to teach the fundamentals of football. Boys and girls ages 5-13 are eligible for participation. The camp is a non-contact camp, providing a fun learning experience for all campers. This non-contact camp is designed to improve a child's beginning, and intermediate skill level. Fundamentals of all positions on offense and defense are taught in addition to life skills such as respect, responsibility, sportsmanship, teamwork and the importance of education. Participants are grouped based on age and skill level. The camp is run by the Charleston Southern Football coaching staff, as well as current Buccaneer players.  Lunch will be provided each day.   


The Rising Stars camps focuses on position-specific fundamentals, technique and skill development for QB's, WR's, RB's, TE's, LB's, DB's, OL, DL, and Specialist while working with the Charleston Southern coaching staff.  Through a series of individual drills, and spirited one-on-one competition, players will learn the Buccaneer way of preparation and practice. Two-way players will have the opportunity to work with both sides of the ball.


This year the Buccaneers will host their second annual Buccaneer Kicking Academy.  This One Day Clinic will to help fine tune your kicking, punting, and long snapping abilities.

Our philosophy is simple — teach each athlete to be the very best kicker, punter, or long snapper they can be! 


The third annual Buccaneer QB/WR camp will once again focus in its primary goal: To build a solid football foundation through the development of the fundamentals of throwing and catching a football.  Head Football Coach Mark Tucker (QB), along with several Buccaneer players will be on hand to instruct campers on drills, fundamentals and technique training.
