In response to the declining economy, the As One Foundation seeks to continue the mission to help unlock and unleash the full potential of young people through athletics, education and spiritual enrichment on a scaled-back basis this year.

While we are forced to considerably reduce our normal full camp operation down to an abbreviated version in order to achieve our mission this year, Devard Darling is dedicated and determined to fulfill the mission of the As One Foundation even with limited funding.

Participants are encouraged to arrive early with a completed application with them on camp day. More Information about DDDFC

As with the full multi-day camps of past years, the 2011 clinic is free of charge to 11-17 year old boys and girls who will also be provided breakfast, snacks, lunch, beverages, camp gear, football instruction, and other camp activities and supplies.

The DDDFC operation comes at a significant cost and would not be possible without the generous cash and in-kind contributions from individuals and businesses.

About the Camps:
The As One Foundation and the The Devard & Devaughn Darling Football Camps (DDDFC) were started by Bahamian Native and NFL Wide-Receiver, Devard Darling, in memory of his late identical-twin brother, Devaughn Darling who died during spring football practice at Florida State University in 2001. The Darling brothers grew up loving American football and dreamed of playing collegiately and professionally. The fulfillment of their shared dream began after moving to the Houston, Texas area as 12 year-olds. They would excel academically and athletically as products of the Fort Bend Independent School District. Devard’s determination to not allow Devaughn’s death be in vain is demonstrated through the work of As One, to expose young athletes to the American game in a safe environment – instructed by coaches and professionals – leading way to the opportunity for the young Bahamians to be considered more seriously for intercollegiate athletics scholarships and higher education.

Darling Family Days Fundraiser:
After the camp the As One Foundation will go to Nassau to conduct “Darling Family Day,” a one-day FUNdraiser with activities for the whole family including a flag-football tournament, 10am-4pm, $250 per team; a steak-out (with a jumpy castle & face-painting for kids), 12noon-4pm, $10 and a party boat cruise, 9pm, $15, Potters Cay Dock in Nassau.
