well as education about strength training.
The next three days of the camp will take place
at the O'Hara Campground on the Selway River, approximately 100 miles East of
Lewiston, Idaho and 110 Miles West of Missoula, Montana. We hope
to have the group camp site at Johnson Bar on the Selway in 2009.
The camp will have daily training sessions for
runners of all abilities as well as group dynamic activities,
educational sessions, games, swimming, beach and other competitions.
Although the camp is to assist in the development
of young runners, we will be emphasizing fun and team building in most,
if not all of our activities.
All campers will receive a camp shirt and
