    I'll be back next year!

    I liked learning about the college process related to our sport. I also liked learning about how to personally better my event. The highlights for me were definitely working hard and being pushed to do our best at all practices while still having fun.

    Wonderful experience for our son

    Loomis Chaffee Running Camp has been a wonderful experience for our son. 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.

    Excited for School Track Season

    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.

    "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."

    Benefited greatly

    Our son came home with far better training methods (he's a sprinter, and needed some work on his initial starts). My husband and I think he benefited greatly from attending camp this summer.

    Tough mentally and physically

    When I got to the camp I loved the way the day is set up so you can have fun with your new friends and still have a hard 3 workouts. Speaking of workouts, the workouts are tough mentally and physically. I like thus because it trains me to be better and get stronger.

    My daughter wanted to reach out and express her gratitude to you for the work you did with her last summer at the Nike Track and Field camp at Loomis Chaffee School in Windsor, CT. She was a HS freshman and had never thrown before. You worked with her and she liked the discus and javelin. She worked hard over this Spring season and made good strides. She feels that a lot of her inspiration and results started with your lessons. She wanted me to let you know that she won her conference meet last night in discus and javelin. The conference has 13 schools. She won the discus with a throw of 95’5 ( her PR this year so far is 97’10”) and for javelin for the first time she exceeded 100 feet, throwing 101’ 6” a PR for her of almost 10 feet. She also qualified for the State meet in both events. She also continues to run sprints and has done well there too. Thanks for your work with her!
