2020 Girls Running Camp Cancelled (6.01.20)
It is with a heavy heart that I am writing to announce the official cancellation of The Girls Running Camp in Tillamook, OR. While Covid19 has altered plans for 2020, it has ignited an even greater passion for elevating the lives of girls who run and and I hope you will mark your calendar for June 27th – July 2nd, 2021, for next year’s edition of the one and only camp for girls on the Oregon coast.
If you’ve already signed up for camp, we will be refunding your money in full within the next two weeks. If you signed up for cancellation insurance, we will contact you directly and will request that you officially request a refund from your insurance policy–this will help our non-profit meet our operating expenses thus far.

” Melody is an inspiring, driven, and positive person and as a guide, coach and mentor, had an amazing impact on my career. She taught me not only how to overcome obstacles, but how to face them with courage. In the face of adversity, Melody constantly reminded me to “Soar High,” allowing me to clearly see the big picture while remaining in the moment. Thanks to Melody, I found myself soaring higher than I ever had and I owe much of my success to her.”
“Melody fosters an environment at camp in which I immediately felt at home. She approaches the sport with a reverence and respect not just for the physical challenges it poses, but for the internal, mental strength it demands. She seeks to support and strengthen the soul of the runner by giving each girl access to new ways of thinking about her inner resources: her strength, talent, desire, competitiveness, vision and gratitude for the ability to put on her running shoes each day. As a result, I left Melody’s camp energized, excited and eager to lace up my shoes for any challenge the sport may throw my way. Her ability to support young female athletes is exceptional and rare.”
Week 1, July 5 to July 10
Girls camp, ages 12-18, will be treated to a one-of-a-kind running immersion experience. Each camper discovers her own true north, through guided writing, meditation and breathing exercises. We strengthen our running will and hone our grit muscle with challenging team and individual training runs. We learn how to support the running journey through talks from experts on nutrition and sports psychology. This camp speaks to the wise-woman within, who wants to pause and take notice of the energy around and within her, to inform her next step on the journey.
Co-ed camps, ages 12-18. Featuring two weeks of original Ultimook camps. The Ultimook’s mission is to develop long distance runners in both mind and body. We offer a REAL cross country experience with a unique mixture of beautiful runs, great training, knowledgeable speakers, and team building challenges called the Sasquatch Games. Each day will bring a different type/variety of training runs, races, and challenges in a variety of terrains—sand, hills, trails, cross country, etc. with a heavy emphasis on developing character, leadership, and teamwork.
