This unique camp is designed to give campers (ages 13-18) a realistic wilderness running and camping experience. To enjoy and respect wilderness beauty through running, hiking and exploring, at high altitudes are the major objectives of this camp. Group and individual instruction will be given in all areas of distance training and racing, with emphasis on performance improvement through self reliance, personal accountability and teamwork strategies. To enhance personal growth, campers must be willing to adapt to lack of urban conveniences not found in the great outdoors. (i.e. cell phones, iPods, tablets, DVD players, and other technos just invented.)
Camp Director, “Futon” Ron Smith, and his wife Carma celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary by renewing their vows on Thursday during session 1.
Ron and Carma met in the 7th grade, married each other at 19 before Ron shipped off to serve in Vietnam, and have spent many of their anniversaries on the mountain.
Congratulations Ron and Carma – you’re an inspiration to us all!
