The Smarter Training for Faster Running Camps are open to all runners, coaches and teams in 8th grade through high school wanting to improve themselves in a positive learning environment. The camps will allow each athlete, regardless of age or ability, the opportunity to learn and grow as a runner, individual, leader and team member.
Our youth cross country summer running camps started as a single running camp in 2002 in Pueblo, CO. Each year the Colorado camp has gotten both bigger and better. The demand is such that there is a waiting list each year for the camp. In fact, during the last few years there has been an overwhelming demand for another camp to be held somewhere in the Midwest. It is our great pleasure to announce that we will be holding our first Midwest camp in the Chicago area.
Our camps are unique in that we teach the runner to take responsibility for his/her training while having fun. Our goal is for all campers to become better leaders, team members and productive members of society. Each camper and coach will be OmegaWave tested so that they can utilize heart rate, anaerobic threshold and VO2Max to optimize their individual training. Our camper to staff ratio is at most 7 to 1 and has been as low as 5 to 1.
Runners, teams and coaches from around the world and the United States have attended our camps. The following countries have each been represented at camp; England, Japan, Germany and South Korea. Traditionally the Colorado camp has a strong following from Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas and Wyoming. While both camps are open to everyone we encourage you sign up for the camp nearest you.
