More Important Camp Details
Each day at camp you partake in a rigorous and exciting daily running schedule that keeps you busy from dawn until dusk. After waking up, you begin each day with a 24 minute shakeout jog. This helps prepare your body and mind for the long day of training ahead. The evening program marks the conclusion of each day. You watch movies, play games, have talks with your new friends before heading off to bed. Teams of 10 boys or 10 girls that register together receive a $25 discount on their camp tuition.
Surrounded by miles of almost never traveled roads and running trails, Five Star Cross Country Camp has found a truly five-star facility at Iroquois Springs Camp in Rock Hill, NY. We have a small lake on campus for boating and canoeing, two swimming pools, and a modern, quality field house. The modern cabins have knotty pine walls, ceiling fans, and hot showers. We hold activities, lectures, and other programs in the field house. Iroquois Springs is located about two minutes from exit 110 on Route 17. It is a short ride to Stewart Airport in Newburgh and less than two hours from the major NY airports.
Check in: Sunday, August 6th from 10am to 12pm.
Check Out: Friday, August 11th. Campers will check out of the cabins at 11:00am and store their luggage. We will have closing skits, a cook-out lunch by the lake and field house with campers departing by 3:00pm.
24-hour supervision is an important feature of every NIKE Running Camp. Staff members reside in campers’ quarters and participate in all activities.
The Five Star Cross Country Camp is pleased to announce the launch of its new camp website. You can visit this website by clicking HERE.
