NFL wide receiver Anquan Boldin is keeping busy this summer hosting a youth summer camp.

Wednesday, the Pahokee graduate brought over 60 kids from his foundation, Q81 to the Xtreme Action Park in Fort Lauderdale.

The visit is part of the foundation’s eight-week program that teaches sporting techniques, lessons in life skills, career choices, and etiquette training.


Boldin says it's always been his desire to “pay it forward.”

“You’re kind of in a box, there’s not a lot of opportunity there (Pahokee),” Boldin said. “I mean, I know firsthand.”

Jejuan Campbell is one of 60 enrolled in Boldin’s program and is a senior at Pahokee High School.

“He’s showed me there is a way out, he taught me how to become a better man,” Campbell said.

Each week has its own set of lessons over the eight weeks of the course. Lessons which Campbell says he will remember for his entire life.
