This is a triathlon developmental camp for youth in grades kindergarten through fifth grade (age 6-11). The camp is one-week long, four hours per day, Monday through Friday, with a mock triathlon on Friday. The goal of the camp is to build the skills and confidence to complete a youth triathlon. Each participant is also encouraged to register for the IslandKids Triathlon, a local youth triathlon, which takes place the day after camp ends.

Your child does not need to have any prior experience in triathlons, this is open to all ability levels.
