The Warhawk Cross Country Camp experience is one which has helped educate and train long distance runners for the past 34 years. Campers will be involved in discussions and demonstrations related to the sport of cross country. Topics will include: training schedules, running mechanics, strength training, stretching, nutrition, race strategy, peaking, cross training, mental preparation, leadership skills and workout design.
There will be two workouts a day with the amount of running based on each individual's level of fitness and running background. The Warhawk Cross Country Camp is one of the best offered in the Midwest as we emphasize both the mental/ learning part of cross country/distance running as well as its physical demands. We have a high number of runners return as they feel the camp offers them a great start towards preparation for the cross country season. Students are encouraged to enroll early to ensure a spot. This camp is available to players entering grades 7-12 in Fall 2018.
Registrations accepted online until noon on 7/10/19. We do NOT accept walk up registrations at event check-in.

Be aware that we recommend that all portable electronic devices be left at home (iPod, Fitbit, cell phones, etc), but ultimately it is your decision. We will not be responsible for any lost or stolen items and we do not have open Wi-Fi for electronic devices.
We would advise those going to any cross country camp to do some running before camp. Those people who do no running at all and then come to a running camp tend to get very sore or injured. Make the experience as enjoyable as possible by first preparing yourself for the demands that running will put on your body at the camp. I would suggest running a minimum of 20-30 minutes 5-6 days a week from now until the camp starts with many of you, hopefully, doing more.

Trails are located on campus which includes the UW-Whitewater's home cross country course. We will also be using the cross country ski trails located in the Kettle Moraine State Forest in LaGrange. Having access to these areas will allow campers the chance to do a lot of natural surface running.
There are many other activities that take place during camp: Untimate Frisbee, Kickball, Sand Volleyball, Pool Workout and skit night, to name a few. We feel very strongly that the camp experience needs to involve work and play. Those who have attended the Warhwaks Cross Country Camp come away with a treuly enjoyable experience and make new friends in the sport of distance running.
