Passion – Courage – Commitment – Resilience




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.

Week 2 & 3, July 26 to Aug. 1 & Aug. 2 to Aug. 8

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.
