2019 Craftsbury Intro to Running Middle School Camp

We’re adding a new running camp to the mix this season: Intro to Running Mini-Camp! This weekend-long overnight camp will serve as an introductory camp for kids aged 10-14 who are excited to learn more about the fundamentals of training and to develop a healthy, sustainable, and positive approach to running. Campers will learn proper dynamic warm-up routines, how to pace runs by effort, and effective post-run strengthening and stretching habits, plus they'll enjoy a whole lot of summer camp fun in between! The camp will be held at Hosmer Point Camp beginning Friday evening (June 7) and ending Sunday mid-day (June 9) and led by Craftsbury Outdoor Center Running Director Heidi Caldwell.

Camp is limited by our cabin space to 10 boys and 10 girls, so register here early! We hope to see you at camp!
