Note:

To you, the 160 campers from Summer 2020 who chose to roll over your deposit/fee for a Guaranteed Spot in 2021 Steens Mt. Running Camp.

The purpose of the early Re-Registration is for you to update your personal information. 

To include address changes, shoe and apparel sizes, emergency information, etc. You can also switch into a different session other than the one you were going to attend in 2020.  

To all other prospective campers who wish to attend Steens 2021.

This registration is a first come, first serve for all campers until we reach our fill point. Last year both sessions filled in late January. But, this being an unusual year, we already have a head start and are almost half filled with “Guaranteed Spot” campers.


About Camp

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.)
