Viking XC Summer Camp Info


As part of our continued work in building the Evergreen Cross Country program, we are holding our inaugural Viking XC Summer Camp this year.  High school athletes will be leaving Evergreen High School on July 25 at 7:00 am and will be traveling to Pokagon State Park by bus. We will be returning to the high school around 7:00 pm on July 27. The cost for camp will be $30 per runner. If you collected pledges for the car wash last year, your fee will be adjusted (Coach Hesson will be letting individuals know).

The goals for camp include:

  1. To strengthen your relationship with your teammates and coaches.
  2. To establish a foundation of training for the upcoming season.
  3. To learn things you may have not known about yourself.
  4. To both have fun and train in a relaxed environment outside of your home.
  5. To be safe in everything you do.
  6. To set goals for your upcoming season.
  7. To learn to work together as a team.
