Through group runs, guest speakers and group activities, each runner will leave with a positive attitude, tools to become an improved runner, and a better understanding of running. The XC camp will be held Tuesday, July 28th through Saturday, August 1st from 8am till 12:15 pm at Shore Middle School in Mentor, Ohio. The camp is open to boys and girls grades kindergarten-12th.
