With Lee county students heading back to school on August 8, summer vacation is nearly over. But if you have a runner in the family, there is one last summer camp opportunity that might interest them.
Florida Gulf Coast University will host a cross-country camp at their campus in Estero from August 1 to August 5, 2011. Under the direction or FGCU cross country coach Cassandra Harbin, the camp is open to students 8 and up. Campers have the choice of commuting daily or staying at the camp.
Participants will get individual and group coaching and guidance in sport psychology, race strategy, strength training, injury prevention and nutrition. Aside from the training, campers will have other activities like swimming at the Lee County/FGCU Aquatics Center. This is also a great opportunity for kids to meet others who share their interest in running. This shouldn’t be discounted. It’s not always easy in school when your sports interests are different than the majority.
