Summer Camp with a World Champ! - 2016

Kids from Waterloo Region had a chance to live what legends are made of by spending time with local World Boxing Champion Fitz The Whip Vanderpool.

Completing his sixth successful year, "Summer Camp with a World Champ" is a program that Fitz and The Whip Boxing Academy have run for youth who don't have the resources needed for a week at camp. Annually, and despite a packed schedule, Fitz coordinates his efforts with like-minded others such as those from Big Brothers, Big Sisters, and Family and Children Services. The goal is for kids to enjoy the benefits of 5 full days of fitness and friendship.

These boys and girls have a chance to learn the sweet science from a real World Champion as well as to play football, soccer, basketball, throw Frisbees, and to swim. But why is it so important to learn from and play with a legend? Per Fitz: "I worked hard to earn my world championship belt and I want to share what winning means with those kids. And while I'm honored so many people remember what I've accomplished inside the ring, I would truly like that these young individuals remember who I am outside it."
