Why Jeni continues to return to Steens Mountain Running Camp each summer:
I enjoy taking care of active, healthy people.
I especially like being there as they complete things they never thought possible – like the last 3 hours of the big day.
To see campers grow from one year to the next, physically, emotionally, and competitively.
