We’re going to camp! This year’s team camp will take place in Eugene, Oregon - Track Town, USA. Camp is an opportunity to get away for a few days, enjoy your teammates, establish expectations for the upcoming season, run a lot, and take advantage of our time in Eugene to spend time learning about our sport’s rich tradition.
When is camp? June 27-30, 2019
Where is it? Eugene, Oregon
How are we getting there? Coaches and chaperones will be driving personal vehicles
What are we going to do? We’re going to be very active. Plan on running twice a day, playing games, doing some hiking, exploring Eugene, relaxing at our house, and capping it all off with a race at the storied Eugene All-Comers meet on Thursday night. We’re going to live the lives of professional runners for a few days.
What will we eat? Each runner is responsible for bringing some money for groceries to buy groceries for their own breakfasts and lunches. Coaches will provide dinner each night.
What do I bring? Lots of clean running clothes, extra deodorant, running hat, sunscreen, your favorite pair(s) of running shoes, clothes for lounging around and exploring town, all toiletries, a towel, water bottle, snacks, a sleeping bag, and a pillow. The goal of our camp is to get away together and spend time as a team. Bring items that will assist in this goal and leave items that will detract from this at home.
Who can come to camp? Every member of the Columbia River Cross Country team is welcome to join if you have demonstrated that you have been training and desire to work hard while having fun. We are limited to 25 runners this year. The first 25 to turn in their paperwork and money will have a spot at camp.
How much does it cost? This year’s camp will cost each runner $275. This includes transportation, lodging in our huge house, a camp t-shirt, your race entry fee, and all of your dinners. Runners are responsible for bringing an additional $30 to contribute to buying groceries with your cooking group and for purchasing groceries for breakfast and lunch for three days during our camp. Money for souvenirs is suggested, but not required.
If money is an issue, please send an email or talk to Coach Christensen. We are happy to provide some partial scholarships for those who'd like to go but are not in a position to pay at this point in time. We want you at camp.
More Questions? See Coach Christensen or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
What’s next? Fill out and turn in all of the attached paperwork along with a check for $275 made out to Columbia River High School to Coach Christensen. The first 25 who turn everything in will have a spot at camp.
