warhawkCross Country Camp

The Warhawk Cross Country Camp experience is one which has helped educate and train long distance runners for the past twenty-eight years.

Campers will be involved in discussions and demonstrations related to the sport of cross country. Topics will include: training schedules, running mechanics, weight 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 individual¹s level of fitness and running background. The Warhawk Cross Country Camp is one of the best offered in the Midwest as we emphasis both the mental/ learning part of cross country/distance running as well as it¹s physical demands. We have a high rate of returning runners 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.


Running Area

Trails are located on campus for off-road running. We will also be using the Kettle Moraine cross country ski trails in La Grange. These are some of the best running trails in Wisconsin. Also, the cross country course on campus will be used for runs. This will give campers the chance to do a lot of natural surface running.



Housing for resident campers is provided in a University residence hall located in close proximity to camp activities and dining facilities. Housing is two persons to a room with single beds for each. Campers will provide their own linens (sleeping bag and pillow are encouraged). Boys and girls will be housed on separate floors and supervised at all times. Camp staff members will be staying in the residence hall to supervise during non-instructional periods.

Campers will have the use of campus recreational facilities. Special hours will be posted and campers will be able to use equipment from the University with their identification cards issued at registration.
