Duke-Track&Field-Camp-Feature

The training facilities at Duke University are among the best in the nation. Morris Williams Track and Field Stadium is located on the west side of Kennedy Tower, sharing the press box with Koskinen Stadium, and is the new home to Duke Track and Field.

The track features a BSS 1000 track surface, constructed by Beynon Sports. Encompassing the track is a walkway, allowing spectators to view any event in the stadium, and bleachers are located next to the finish line.  For field events, two long/triple jump runways are located inside the home straight with sand pits on both sides to accommodate changes in wind. Inside the back straight are two pole vault runways, with two additional runways located in the D-area. The D-area will also hold dual high jump pits. The infield also accommodates all throwing events, boasting two shot put areas, a javelin runway and a combined hammer and discus cage. Protective nets have been placed along the long/triple jump and pole runways for added safety.

Campers experience campus life on one of the most beautiful college campuses in the nation. They stay in air conditioned double dorm rooms on Duke's Gothic style West Campus. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the main cafeteria (Great Hall). All meals are buffet style.

    Great experience

    Loved being on the Duke campus, meeting new people, interacting with different coaches. At the end of the 3 days she was exhausted and sore but really happy with her experience.

    See you again next year

    Thank you and your team for conducting an excellent Track and Field Camp. When I picked up my daughter today she could not stop talking about how much she enjoyed your Track and Field Camp. She learned a lot (particularly in the high jump), met new friends, had the opportunity to be coached by your great team and had fun staying in the dorms…she told me to sign her up for your Camp again next year. So...we will see you again next year.

    The coaches did a good job at teaching new techniques and skills while still maintaining an element of fun and freedom to the camp experience.

    Great experience

    Great experience for a High School student preparing for a college career as an athlete in the Track and Field Sport.

    Taste of running in college

    I enjoyed my time at the track camp. It gave me the opportunity to experience what college track and staying in the dorms will be like. I also liked meeting and training with other runners from all over the country and world.

    Disappointed with conditions

    Due to bad weather one day we lost 2 of our 3 instructional periods. 50 percent of the hurdle training that I expected was eliminated. Adding one more day to camp would decrease the impact of one weather day.

    Great learning experience

    I highly recommend this camp to future campers. It's great for beginners to experienced track athletes. As a pole vaulter, I experienced a positive environment with my event group as well as other friendships via dormmates and the people I ate with at meals - great opportunity to meet people from all over the U.S. and possibly elsewhere. The counselors (college athletes) were encouraging and easy to make conversation with for any questions about athletics, college, or anything really

    Disappointed with the conditions

    Was disappointed to hear when it rained that the campers only hung inside the dorms doing team building activities. Not sure why they cold not have an alternative inside space for inclement weather. Since they are not all on the same 'team', no instruction for track & field was given. For the price of this camp, I was hoping for more 'instruction' on specifics. My daughter loved the hurdles but that is all she did. She also felt as if the older campers got more attention.
