WHAT TO EXPECT

A low-pressure & super-fun introduction to running for young athletes grade 1-8! Sure, we’ll take the kiddos running, but it’s beyond just logging miles & sweating away the summer. Our program focuses on instilling joy & enthusiasm for running & building knowledge and appreciation. Here’s what to expect.

  • Each week features a different theme to keep the content new adn fresh for those athletes and families looking to participate in more than one camp.
  • Intro to workout structures, including proper stretching, warm-ups, and basic workout terminology.
  • Basic nutrition concepts for helping fuel your run.
  • Games centered around running to make it fun!

COACHING

Our coaches collectively have decades of experience leading all ages and abilities. We also have assistant coaches from area high school XC & track programs to add excitement & knowledge. Our ideal ratio is 10-15 athletes to 1 coach.

SAFETY DURING COVID-19

We take the risks and challenges of operating a camp during the time of COVID-19 very seriously. We also recognize how important physical exercise and movement is to our immune systems, especially our children. We will be adhering to current state and county guidelines at the time of the camp opening.

  1. Splitting our small camp into 2-3 smaller groups based on ability/age when applicable.
  2. Requiring all kids to bring their own water bottles.
  3. Requiring masks if athletes are unable to maintain distancing when outside. When they can maintain distance outside, masks will be able to be pulled down.
  4. Operating games and running activities that limit close contact.
  5. Only offering outdoor activities in the open air, where the risk of infection is close to zero.
  6. No shared snacks.
  7. Our coaches are all vaccinated!
