Summer 2019 Nike Running Camp Schedule & Locations
Nike Running Camps, a division of US Sports Camps, the largest organizer of sports camps in the world, has announced its 2019 summer running camp dates. This summer the Nike Running Camps will be held at 31 locations in 19 different states.
The Nike Running Camps has camps that offer both track & field and cross country programs and are geared towards boys and girls, ages 9-18. Full day, extended day, and overnight camps are directed by NCAA college coaches, elite high school coaches, or experienced professional coaches. Campers train with other motivated individuals, sharing their love of the sport while receiving instruction in a safe, competitive environment and making new friends.
“We have rolled out an amazing line-up of cross country camps and track & field camps. Our lucky campers spend a week away, living the lives of a student-athletes, doing what they love to do… run, throw, jump. Some of the best coaches in the country train with our kids,” states Jan O’Connor, EVP of US Sports Camps. “They become better, faster smarter athletes.”
