Junior Summer Ski Camp

August 4-8, 2014

Building on the success of our BKL daycamps, we're excited to offer our Junior Ski Camp for U16-20 skiers (born in 2000 and earlier).

Skiers will be doing two workouts a day, with rollerskiing, running, weight and circuit training, technique work, biking, canoeing, kayaking, biathlon, and sculling. Thursday's morning workout will be the run up Elmore Mountain in Elmore State Park. This run has been used in the regional and national elite camps we've hosted the past several years for skiers to benchmark their fitness. Green Racing Project skiers will be doing this and other workouts with the kids, staying the night as counselors, and sharing their experiences and knowledge in evening talks.

In addition to the work will be play! Campers will have daily time to relax and unwind in between sessions, hanging out at the HP waterfront, swimming at the Center or picnicing and swimming in Lake Elmore after the run. Days close with relaxing activities like movies, campfires, or dances.
