Wildwood Running is hosting a Girls Virtual Running Camp (without any running)! As we know, athletes are experiencing this sport in new ways. With COVID regulations, many programs are able to come together to run but more than that is hard!
What's missing from programs right now are those big conversations around mental health, nutrition, confidence building, leadership, menstrual health, being a good teammate and so much more!
We feel this is an opportune time to reach young female runners from all over the country to support them in becoming not only the best runner they can be but the best person as well. Like most things Wildwood Running, this camp will cover many topics around being a great female runner without any of the running!
Our sessions will focus on providing girls with information to better themselves as a runner. This camp will have experts in the field teach particular topics, then campers will move to smaller breakout sessions with camp counselors to talk and debrief each subject. We will also have a reflection piece where athletes will take a couple of minutes to respond to writing prompts geared at supporting their growth in these areas. If you miss any sessions, they will be recorded and available to watch.
Our sessions are geared toward three types of learning: Informational, character building & FUN!
All sessions will be recorded & available for campers to watch if they miss a session.
SEE BELOW for our full line up of speakers, elite athletes and fun activities!
Scholarships: We will provide scholarships to anyone who cannot afford it.
Coaches are encouraged to join their teams.
The first 100 athletes to register will receive a goodie bag with items that we will use throughout the camp as well as some fun swag from partners.
