CROSS COUNTRY CAMP

INFORMATION ABOUT THE CAMP:

Campers (available for rising grades 3-8) will be introduced to the basic skills and techniques associated with Cross Country. These include: dynamic and static stretching, plyometrics, core strength, balance, running mechanics, speed development, endurance development, and race strategy. We will also explore running-related topics like nutrition, hydration, proper running equipment, and keeping a running journal. 

The joy of running will be emphasized by encouraging campers to have a blast while pushing themselves physically. A positive and encouraging environment will be promoted by team games and friendly competitions that emphasize that you strive to do your best! This camp wants to inspire life-long runners!

God has blessed all of his children with many awesome gifts. For athletes, the ability to train, compete, and encourage teammates is a great way to express the gifts we’ve been given. Camp will have an interactive daily devotional time that shares what scriptures say about running (e.g., Hebrews 12:1; 1 Corinthians 9:25) and communicate how self-discipline and focused physical effort can bring us closer to our Savior.
