About Camp:
Our twice a week, 4-week camp is geared toward kids entering grades 4-7 for the 2018-19 school year. During the 2 hours we’re together, our coaches will teach running form, pacing and technique, but we also want to have fun. We’ll encourage team building, try healthy snacks, and play games that will have your child laughing until you pick them up from camp!

  • Water and healthy snack provided at each session
  • Commemorative Junior Running Camp shirt at the end of camp
