I do not coach D1 prospects and have no interest in the "Big Camps" or money grabs for my players.
I'm looking for local camps (Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Missouri) that would either be great for individual instruction or good for showcasing them to smaller schools (FCS, DII, DIII). Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I have had positive experiences with Jeff Trickey's camps. Also, Central College (D III in Iowa) puts on a great Linemen camp.
First post for me. Check out Chicagoland Showcase. Held at Northwestern. I have no first hand knowledge, but one of our o-line went last year, tons of D2, D3 and Ivy. I will be going this year, I guess it is quite the production but lots of exposure.

Check out the WIAC schools (Wisconsin--Div III conference)--most of them, if not all, do camps that are instruction oriented. Kids have had good learning experiences (as well as some fun) over the years at these camps.
showcasing to smaller schools in midwest= MAC school camps like Toledo, Bowling Green, Miami Ohio will have plenty of D2, D3 and NAIA schools present
Smaller camps focused on great skill instruction- Darren Slack QB Camps, there used to be a Midwest Lineman Camp in Michigan although I am not sure if it takes place anymore. I have personally never been but I have heard great things about Jamie Kohls Kicking Camps as well
