Strathcona Nordics hosted a successful Teck Regional Camp at Miracle Beach Campground, just outside of Courtenay, from Sept. 13 to 15.
The camp, which is part of a regional initiative by Cross Country BC and Teck Resources Ltd. to get more youth participation in cross country skiing, attracted 36 participants between the ages of eight and 17.
For many the highlight of the camp was simply camping and staying together for the entire weekend. The campground was ideally placed close to ideal training locations, including trails for running and roller skiing and the beach.
“Having all of the athletes training together was really special,” notes camp coordinator Andrea Stapff. “Some of the younger kids got to try roller skiing for the first time, using equipment loaned by the older kids.”
Strathcona Nordics will host a Teck Regional Snow Camp from Dec. 27-30 at Mt. Washington ski area. For more information on this camp, or to register, contact the Strathcona Nordics at info@StrathconaNordics.com
