"At camp, running became a social outing, adventure time, meditative time, therapy and self-esteem building…. running was so much more than running.”
-Maddy Poor, 2012 camp attendee, Seattle Preparatory School
Celebrating 10 years of welcoming runners from across Alaska, the U.S. and the World: Juneau, Gustavus, Skagway, Haines, Petersburg, Ketchikan, Anchorage, Soldotna, Kenai, Palmer, Wasilla, Houston (AK), McGrath, Nome... even Oregon, Washington State, Idaho, Minnesota, Vermont, Massachusetts, Dawson City (Yukon, Canada) and Italy!
The Lynn Canal Running Camp is a week-long opportunity for high school runners (as of September of the year you register) to meet and develop a life-long passion for running. The Eagle River Camp, located 30 miles north of Juneau, Alaska in the Tongass National Rainforest, serves as home for both campers and counselors. This is where runners sleep, make meals, play games and listen to guest speakers. Running activities will occur throughout the Juneau trail system.
“When I first started this camp a week ago I didn't know what to think. Then, it just blew my mind. I made so many amazing friends and got closer to the friends I already had. I honestly have a hard time thinking about what would've happened if I hadn't gone. This has been one of the best (and toughest) weeks of my life!”
-Isaac Schlosser, 2018 camp attendee, Juneau-Douglas High School
Events each day vary, but the focus will remain the same: a holistic approach to healthy running. Activities include breakout sessions on nutrition, healthy relationships, sports psychology, running technique, running after high school, and core strengthening. Runs will be wide-ranging, but all runners can expect to run between 25 and 50 miles during the camp depending on prior experience and ability. Physicals and a medical release are required for all runners.
