Event Description


It would be hard to find a more fitting setting for cross country runners. Come train among 1000+ acres of forest and meadows of the Green Lake Conference Center located two miles west of Green Lake on Hwy 23 and on the north shore of Green Lake. This camp is a co-ed distance training camp for high school cross country runners.

A secret to success in competition is to be better prepared than your opponent. This camp emphasizes learning both theory and application of successful cross country running. Workouts will be appropriate for each athlete’s experience and condition. This is a camp where each athlete can combine learning and training while experiencing the joys of running.

The cross country camp offers a limited enrollment with an athlete-to-counselor ratio of 9 to 1. This unique grouping fosters a “team” atmosphere.

Through staff members sharing their extensive running knowledge, you will gain experience in training methods, exercise physiology, psychology of training and racing, racing tactics, mechanics or running, nutrition, cross training, injury prevention, and rehabilitation. Recreational activities include swimming, volleyball, tennis and softball. Canoes, bikes and sailboats can also be rented. Campers are also encouraged to bring their own bikes and games to play.

Meals are served buffet style. Campers are welcome to bring their own snacks. The camp concludes on Thursday at noon.
