High Latitude Cross Country Running Camp - Grades 9-12

 

This camp will not be offered for Summer 2021.

Camp Overview

Our goal is to provide athletes the knowledge and understanding of distance running in a fun and motivational atmosphere in order to prepare athletes to have success in future seasons. Train with runners from around the Midwest, learn from collegiate coaches on practical and technical aspects of the sport, and run with collegiate athletes that have experienced top levels of training and racing. Lecture topics will cover proper goal setting, successful mindsets, and training theory, along with a Q&A session with current coaches and student-athletes.

Important Information for Live-In Participants

Residence Hall for Live-In Participants

Live-in participants stay in Wadsworth Hall on Michigan Tech's campus, just a short walk from the Student Development Complex (SDC), where Michigan Tech Sports Camps are held. Rooms in the residence hall are furnished with bunk beds, dressers, and desks. Dorm rooms are not air-conditioned, so students are encouraged to bring a fan. Linens, pillows, and blankets are provided. Students must bring two to three towels. Restrooms and showers are conveniently located on each floor. The residence hall has lounges, cable TV, and a recreation room. Laundry facilities are available. Students must bring their own laundry supplies. Participants receive round-the-clock supervision. Note: Lost key $75.

Room Occupancy Policy for Live-In Participants

Participants living in the residence hall will room with members of their own age group. Rooms are equipped for two people. We do not take requests for 3-person rooms. Participants also do not room alone. Roommate requests must be made by both participants and will be asked for on the confirmation packets that participants receive after being accepted into camp (not at time of registration). Participants not requesting a specific roommate will be paired up with another person in their age group. All roommate assignments are prepared ahead of time and do not happen at time of check-in.

Check-In Procedure for Live-In Participants

All live-in participants will first check in for camp at Wadsworth Hall. (DO NOT GO TO THE SDC!) See individual camp schedule for specific check-in time. Upon arrival, park in Lot 15W at the front of Wadsworth Hall and come in through the main entrance. There will be directional signs to follow for check-in which will take place on the basement level. Please leave all personal belongings in your vehicle until after the check-in process has been finished. Photo IDs, handbooks, room assignments, keys, medicine check-in, etc. are just a few items that will be taken care of during the live-in check-in process. Once participants are settled in their rooms, welcome meetings with counselors will take place on-floor. Again, see individual camp schedule for further details. Lunch in the cafeteria on the first day of camp is not included in your camp fees, but is available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Family members are welcome to purchase meal passes at the Wadsworth Hall front desk.

Check-Out Procedure for Live-In Participants

At the end of camp, parents should communicate with their participants to arrange when and where they would like to meet after check-out. Parents should park in Lot 15W at the front of Wadsworth Hall. Participants will be checking out on-floor with their counselor (packing up/cleaning, turning in keys, etc.) and will need to be signed out by an approved parent, guardian or authorized release person. Lunch in the cafeteria on the last day of camp is not included in your camp fees, but is available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Family members are welcome to purchase meal passes at the Wadsworth Hall front desk.

Late Arrival Procedure for Live-In Participants

When our participants are set to arrive late, arrangements MUST be pre-approved or an emergency delay must be called in to the Summer Youth Programs 24 Hour Emergency Line, 906-483-7651. Parents and participants first must report to the front desk at Wadsworth Hall to check in and meet with a head counselor who will have materials ready for them when they arrive. The parent and participant will go through signing in and dropping off their stuff to their assigned room. Once this is taken care of, a counselor will escort the participant to wherever it is they need to be.
