  • Nike Running Camp T-shirt
  • Camp is open to ages 10-18
  • Individual and group instruction

The facility is designed for teaching, boasting three shot circles, a discus circle, four separate jumping pits, and separate high jump areas.  Just this year, the facility was fitted with lights enabling us to do evening sessions.

Nonstop Fun!

"The camp is just nonstop fun! From the intense track sessions to the friends you meet, you will love this camp. The staff is great and provides expert insight to your running technique. They are so good that even after a hard week of training I ran a PR in the 1600. The grounds are pristine and after track sessions we often played ultimate Frisbee in the courtyard. There is no question that I am going to return next year"

Has Attended 4 Years in a Row

"Loomis Chaffee Running Camp has been a wonderful experience for our son Jameson. He has attended for four years in a row now and this was his first time staying over night. He had never been to overnight camp anywhere before and absolutely loved it. We felt so confident that he was taken care of and had no doubts the coaches would look out for him. His running improved and he built more endurance over the week."

Fantastic!

"I had a fantastic time. I learned tons of different workouts I'd never heard of before. The instructers were polite. They explained workouts and stretches in a detailed and easy to follow manner. I liked that they took a vidio of us running so we could look at our form. From the wonderful staff to the exiting workouts Nike Track Camp was the best experience ever. I would love to come back and as an overnight camper next year."
