    Learned a lot

    My son learned a lot during the small group breakout sessions. He enjoyed his one-on-one time with the coaches working in the long-jump pit. The camp worked on his technique and increased his confidence in the sport.

    Only way to go!

    If you seriously want to improve upon and grow in your running, going to a Nike Running camp is the only way to go. The Nike Running camp is the only camp in all sports that I've gone to that has drastically improved my skills. The coaching is very individualized and specific for each camper and definitely allows each camper to fulfill their potential.

    Efficient planning and execution

    Future camper, Nike running camps are a great opportunity to meet new athletes and gain skills and knowledge. This camp is efficient in planning and executing activities and sessions. They focus on each different event or sport and work to discuss each individual's experience and help with their troubles.

    Amazing camp

    This is such an amazing camp. You have so many options to choose from. From 40s all the way to eight miles or more. At this camp you have the chance to meet a lot of new coaches that are fun and will try their best to help you.

    Coaches genuinely care

    The camp was constructed very well and I would recommend it to other athletes. They did a good job on really pushing the drive phase so I can better understand and improve of it. They also commented on individuals and offered ways they could improve individually. The coaches seemed to genuinely care about everyone who was at the camp.

    Lots of one on one with the coaching staff

    The Nike Running Camp at Hillsdale College was a great experience. The coaching staff offers a lot of one on one time with the athletes and they make sure that you understand everything.

    One complaint

    The only complaint I had during the camp was how the group activity was after dinner. While I enjoyed every group activity, I feel like if they had been before dinner I would've been able to fall asleep faster because everyday without fail I was tired after dinner but the group activity woke me up again. Overall though, the camp was great!
