This camp is made for all female distance runners. At Wildwood running we support Anyone who loves this sport, wants to continue to grow as a runner and a person no matter their pace! As many athletes are gearing up for their cross country season, we will model our five days together after a typical week of practice. We will not be running hard every day but inturn will practice different types of workouts and recovery days simultaneously. We want athletes to leave camp feeling like they put in some good work but most importantly learned more about themselves and their athletic journey.
Like most things Wildwood Running, we will take time to reflect and discuss being a great runner as well as a great person. We will talk about athletic identity, mental health, puberty, building confidence, menstrual health, and so much more. Our hope every girl leaves camp feeling like they’ve grown as an individual and are proud of the journey they are on!

We are excited to host our camp at Cedar Ridge retreat. This property encompasses many sleeping areas, a dining hall, swimming pool, fields, slip and slide and 1 mile trail around the perimeter of the property. The property is located in Vernonia, Oregon which is about 1 hour west of Portland.
Simultaneously a youth boys soccer camp will be occurring on the property. During our camp we will not be with them. Our schedule will be coordinated appropriately so that our groups do not overlap on the property. The property is large enough that we can find our own space. A couple times during the week, we will take a bus to various running locations.
We ask that camp be a technology free zone. Athletes may have 30 minutes in the evening to connect with their families but we want to encourage all athletes to enjoy nature, meet friends and have fun!
All of our Covid protocols will be developed using the Oregon overnight camp guidelines. We will work with Cedar Ridge retreat to make sure all of these are met. (Link to camp protocols). We ask that all campers are either vaccinated or present a negative COVID-19 test 48 hours prior to camp. Campers will remain in cohorts of 30 or less. Cabins will maintain appropriate spacing per guidelinesset by the Oregon Health Authority.
We are excited to have some of our favorite runners as counselors. All counselors will be vaccinated or have had a negative Covid test 48 hours prior to arrival. They also will have completed a background check. These counselors believe in the power of living a well rounded life full of running and other things.
