Hi Everyone! This is co-director Fran Cusick, I wanted to write this blog to talk a bit about the 2016 version of Stowe Running Camp. As hard as it is to believe, summer is getting closer and closer, and before you know it school will be over and, depending on your motivation level, either putting in your summer mileage or posting up on the couch watching Netflix.
At any rate, a couple announcements regarding the camp:
-If everyone reading this could follow Stowe Running Camp on Twitter (@StoweRunCamp) as well as on Instagram (just search for Stowe Running Camp) and then finally like us on Facebook. I wouldn’t consider myself a social media guru by any stretch, but we are trying to increase the audience of the camp a bit and the more likes and followers we have, the better.
-I put this on Twitter and Facebook, but 8th graders (current 7th graders) are allowed to attend the camp. So if you’re a parent of a 7th grader right now and thinking about it, go sign up!
Finally, I am really excited about camp this year, so please spread the word to your friends, teammates, competitors, etc. I’m going to address this in a future blog post, but the main concern that I hear from most kids is that they don’t want to pay to attend camp. This is certainly a legitimate concern and if you are in a situation where you want to go, but aren’t quite sure that you can afford it, please reach out to me! You can get in touch with me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by Tweeting at me (@fc1345).
I am a high school cross country and track coach at Tewksbury HS, and we plan on taking a big crew to Stowe this year, but we also plan to do a ton of fundraising to help pay for the trip. So please let me know and I can try to give you some ideas or point you in the right direction.
My final message is if you are reading this and you are a potential camper, go sign up now! Here is the link: Stowe Running Camp Signup Page. I promise you it will be a rewarding, fulfilling experience that you will never forget.
Ok, that’s all for now. Happy running!
