Over the years, the BC Lions have been tremendous partners with Football BC in hosting the annual Senior Bowl camp at their practice facility.
One of the great benefits of this camp is the Lions, through their committment to the community and growth of grassroots football, have also been active participants in the camp.
The Senior Bowl camp traditionally kicks off with an address from a senior member of the BC Lions management team. In recent years, that has included the likes of Wally Buono, Dennis Skulsky, and Geroy Simon.
Senior Bowl camp also features a number of active players joining the camp as guest coaches throughout the week.
This year, Senior Bowl is proud to welcome the following BC Lions (and perhaps a few more surprise appearances):
- Adam Bighill
- Shawn Gore
- Manny Arceneaux
- Cody Husband
- Jas Dhillon
- Eric Fraser
Senior Bowl also dedicates a portion of the camp for the BC Lions "Be More Than A Bystander" presentation. The program aims to break the silence surrounding violence against women and girls by providing tools, language and practical ideas about how to be more than a bystander, how to speak up and how to communicate that violence and abuse is not acceptable.
