THANKS from the Ben Elo Camp Family for 8 Great Years!
We announced in the spring that this last Camp in June would be our Final camp.  We always said we'd follow where GOd leads us and when we feel it's time to stop we will.  We are 'stepping back’ in order to 'step forward’ and God has provided by leading some of our College Coaches and Jack Poison, MHS Coach, to 'step up’ and build a new camp that resembles the goals and principals of Ben’s Camp.  So for all those who were saddened to hear of the finality of Ben’s Camp, we invite you to visit Ben’s website ( for a link to the PATAS SOCCER CAMP which will be held the same week and location as Ben’s Camp.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank the SPONSORS and VOLUNTEERS and CAMPERS who've supported us and let you know what we've accomplished in Ben’s name and with honor and glory to God.  Since the first camp in 2009 Ben’s Camp has: more here

Welcome to the Ben Elo Memorial Fund website, 

Home of the ONE and ONLY Ben Elo Memorial Soccer Camp where College Coaches from across the State and Country spend the week coaching  your kids. Ben Elo was an amazing young man of faith, determination and leadership with a deep love of God, family and soccer.  Playing for the Carmel United Soccer Club MRL team he achieved a lifetime goal of winning the U14 State Cup Title in 2008. Ben died suddenly and without known cause on July 21, 2008.  While we don’t know what caused his passing, we do know he impacted others in profound and dramatic ways.  The Ben Elo Memorial Fund was created to honor God and remember Ben in a number of ways: 

​                  * A $5,000 annual college scholarship   
                  * Character in Leadership Award,
                  * The Ben Elo Memorial Library and
                 * Grief Ministry to parents who’ve lost children.  

Thanks for visiting the site.   We invite you to learn more about Ben, his Soccer Camp and the Ben Elo Memorial Fund.
