The Princeton Girls Cross Country Camp is a five-day program that will serve as an excellent preseason running camp. In addition to conditioning and motivational instruction, the camp will emphasize the importance of being a healthy female student-athlete.  While running cross country may appear to be an individual competition, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about the team dynamics that can be found within the sport. Come learn and run with the nationally ranked Princeton Tigers!

Cross Country is a TEAM sport! The Princeton Girls Cross Country Camp is a great place to establish bonds with teammates before the school year begins. Discounts are given to groups of 5 or more campers from the same school or teams that register together. To receive the group rate, please send an e-mail to camps@princeton.edu with the names and e-mail addresses of all team members. We will then send a unique code to each individual that can be used to register online.
