Looking for a great way to wrap up your triathlon season?  Looking to get to know some of your fellow triathletes in a cool unique venue?  Look no further!  We've got everything you're looking for at French Creek!

Please note that we have a DISCOUNT CODE available for SCHUYLKILL TRI CLUB MEMBERS.  Additionally, all campers will receive a comp code good for one free race at Sunday's Fall SwimFest at French Creek on 9/29.

This tri camp includes swim/bike/run coaching, primitive cabin accommodations, home cooked meals, and sag support for designated bike rides.  You'll have the option to stay at group camp after workouts to exchange war stories by the campfire.  Plus, you don't need to lift a finger after a hard day of training.  We've got it all covered.

PLEASE CONTACT CAMP DIRECTOR, JOHN KENNY, IF YOU HAVE ANY SPECIFIC QUESTIONS.  If you have specific training goals, we'll work with you (and your coach, if applicable) to get you your ideal training weekend.  We understand that not everyone is in the same place in their training journey and scaled workouts will reflect that.
