Upcoming Sessions

Logging miles, building chemistry and developing passion are crucial to a Cross Country team’s success. Strong Cross Country teams and runners are built in the summer off-season, not in November.  The All-Ohio Cross Country Camp has been designed with this philosophy in mind.

The All-Ohio Cross Country Camp is open to all high school student-athletes who enjoy running with and learning from the best. Instructors include Olympians, nationally recognized physicians, physiologists and coaches. Campers will receive guidance from counselors from universities and campuses across the country. Campers will experience a bit a campus life while learning the latest training and physiological advances in distance running. All campers will also be videotaped and analyzed for proper running technique.

Housing and Meals

Hosting camp at Denison University allows campers to experience a taste of life on a college campus in a safe, structured environment. Denison University is settled on top of the hills in Granville, a small, eclectic Ohio town.  Campers will be served three great meals a day (all you can eat) and share a living area. Meals are prepared daily by an outstanding cook staff that focuses on nutritious meals.  Campers will be housed in the Denison Universuty dormitories, which host a majority of the students that attend the University during the academic year.  Each camper will have a bed, which may be a bunk bed or portable roll away bed (we do house campers on the same team in the closed-off common rooms also).
