    During the past two summers, I have been able to attend the Cape Cod Running Camp in Brewster, Massachusetts. This is always an amazing five days, as I get to attend the camp with other members of my team. Although the running part of running camp is very difficult, the amount of time spent hanging out with friends really helps our team bond and become more focused on the team aspect of the sport instead of the individualism. The camp is run by Roy Harrison, the former Head Cross Country/Track Coach at Fairfield University and Assistant Cross Country/Track Coach at Quinnipiac University. The co-director of the camp is Sean Robinson, Head Coach at Morris Hills High School in New Jersey. Mr. Robinson is very knowledgeable and passionate about the sport, as are the college-aged counselors. Cape Cod Running Camp is a great experience that I am looking forward to attending next summer. The best thing about Cape Cod Running Camp is all the time spent with my teammates, or the team bonding aspect. The camp is held at the Cape Cod Sea Camp facility, right on the beach. Campers are allowed to go to the beach during their free time, and they are allowed access to the Cape Cod Sea Camp facilities, which include basketball courts and a pool. One of the best things about camp is walking to Colbies to get some Ice Cream after a hard day of running. We run twice during the day, once in the morning (an easy run, sometimes on the beach), and once in the afternoon. At the end of the week, there is a 2.5 mile race on the beach, the Snake River Run. The camp also has a dance and a talent show. Along with the great social aspect, the camp brings in college coaches in the evenings to talk about everything from running essentials to the college running experiences. College-aged counselors also provide insight onto the college running scene and share their experiences. The past two years, I have had great experiences at this camp. During the large amount of time with my teammates, I had a great time playing ping pong, poker (although my twin Jared never ceased to win in the end), and basketball. Spending six days (the camp starts on Tuesday and ends on Sunday) with many of my best friends is a great experience that I will never forget. My brother and I were even able to place second in the talent show with our “Twin Telepathy” trick. Another of the numerous great things about this camp is that the counselors stay involved in your running even after your experience at the camp. Mr. Harrison has come to several of our meets this season to support our team. The Cape Cod Running Camp is a great experience that I would definitely recommend.
