CAMP OFFERINGS (July 8, 9,10, and 11, July 15, 16, 17, 18, 24, 25)


Al Bagnoli

COVID 19 INFORMATION: Due to COVID we will be taking registrations for our camps with $0 down payment and an automatic payment scheduled if camps are confirmed. Registration will be on a first come first serve basis, and is never limited by skill. For more information on Columbia's current summer camp statement, see below.

"The University is still considering whether 2021 summer camps can safely be offered. Our first priority is the health and safety of all participants and staff; no official decision has been made at this time. We are closely tracking New York City and State guidelines and collaborating with University leadership in order to make an assessment.

If it is determined that camps can safely be operated, we will open registration. In the meantime, click here to be added to our email list.

Please note that if camps are approved to operate, additional safety requirements may be implemented, such as negative COVID test results, daily health screenings and attestations, and more.

We will update our website and communications as more information becomes available."

Welcome to the official website of the Al Bagnoli Football Camp at Columbia University. This is a light contact camp for all positions. The camp is open to young men entering the 11th, or 12th grades in high school.

Coach Bagnoli, Columbia’s Head Football Coach, and his staff will oversee and instruct all activities and techniques the entire day. The Columbia Coaches will be joined by college coaches from dozens of other elite academic institutions located around the region. (Names of schools, coaches will be released closer to the dates of camps)

The Al Bagnoli Football camp provides each camper not only the opportunity to learn new skills and techniques to improve as a football player, but also the chance to showcase his ability in front of Columbia University Football coaches as well as coaches from multiple other academic Universities.

We would love for you to take advantage of your time at Columbia and have you learn about one of the world’s most prestigious Universities. NCAA regulations prohibit us from including any recruiting presentation in summer camp. The best way for you to see all that NYC and Columbia have to offer is to plan an unofficial visit through the admissions office on the day before or after your camp date. New York City has an endless supply of amenities to make your time in Manhattan both a valuable and enjoyable experience.

Thank you for your interest in the Al Bagnoli Football Camp at Columbia University. We look forward to seeing you in NYC this summer.
