Summer Dryland 2018

In addition to our popular summer BKL camps and junior ski camps, we offer annual members dryland training programs for skiers ages 8 to 98! Our sessions for younger kids focus primarily on being active, having fun, and working on fundamentals. As skiers move up through our programs, they embark on more focused training, including rollerskiing, running, strength, and more. Get the full scoop (including registration costs and information) over here.

Don't forget that Craftsbury Outdoor Center Membership is a prerequisite for registering in our summer training programs!

Skiers are made in the summer; come bank your fitness for a winter of fun!

SBTC is now GRP U23

To connect our sculling programs more clearly, we have changed the name of our U23 summer developmental program from Small Boat Training Center (or SBTC) to GRP U23.

GRP U23 is designed to provide a summer training opportunity for college-aged athletes with a focus on small boat skill development, and a particular emphasis on sculling. It is one of our core beliefs that the development of small boat skills can only improve an athlete’s long-term development and ability to excel in all boat classes. The program's goal is to help athletes improve both physiologically and technically over the course of the summer, while also aiming to place athletes on the U23 World Championship Team via trials and to race successfully at Canadian Henley, to continue to identify athletes for the ...

Caldwell posts impressive Boston time

It was a historic day at the Boston Marathon this Monday, April 16, with American Desi Linden winning the women's title, the first US woman to do so in 33 years. Among the rain-soaked finishers was another female runner, this one with Craftsbury ties: newly announced running coordinator Heidi Caldwell finished an impressive 29th in the women's field, with a time of 2:54:31. She was also the first Vermont woman across the line.

Caldwell trained for and raced Boston while working on her master's degree in counseling at UVM this spring. As a former Division I cross country and track runner at Brown University, she has a background in shorter races and is a multiple school record holder at Brown. Caldwell will start a new position this May as Running Coordinator at the COC, which will ...
