Summer Running Camp
In this camp, beginning and experienced young runners alike will approach the sport from an understanding of running as both a mental and physical sport. We will begin the day with a morning distance run. Other activities throughout the day will include additional running training such as sprints, stretching, and active games such as kickball, ultimate frisbee, and capture the flag. We will finish the day with a shorter distance run and make goals to improve runners’ abilities throughout the week.

Campers in Innovation and Design Camp will have opportunities to tinker, question, experiment, try something new, challenge themselves, work in teams, and get a little messy! Join us for a week of “making” awesome projects, virtual "field trips," and connecting with like-minded young makers from around the world on Google+. Innovation and Design Camp will inspire your camper to embrace their inner maker, get their hands dirty, fix some things, break some things, and have a lot of fun doing it!
