The camp is split into two separate formats based on age. The Malcolm and Me camp is for children in grades 1-6, and features less intense drills. The Malcolm Butler Football Camp is for grades 7-12 and features more football-oriented instruction from camp staff and coaches.

The camp is hosted by Malcolm Butler, a Vicksburg native who played seven seasons in the NFL and won two Super Bowl championships with the New England Patriots. He will be joined by Vicksburg High coaches and college players and coaches as instructors.

The camp is sponsored by the United Way of West Central Mississippi, Nike and BSN Sports.
