It is both super fun and extremely motivating for just about any Junior athlete, whether you’re an experienced racer or an up-and-coming young competitor. Based out of  (where else?) beautiful June Lake in the Eastern Sierra, activities will include some challenging & scenic runs, great roller skiing on spectacular roads, and also an incredible hike to the top of a 13,000+ ft. peak, where you will truly feel “on top of the world.” Combined with traditional fun games, swimming, and great camaraderie, the June Lake Camp is the one must-do training session of the summer.

Open to all Far West juniors age 13-19. A super fun and motivating camp for the ‘old hands” to the ‘newbies’. Camp consists of amazing hiking, rollerskiing, sightseeing, and technique-ing. Coaches will be Nancy Fiddler, Mark Nadell, Marie French, and others. Catering by Mac Gastronomaganza.
