Girls Cross Country Camp
Girls Cross Country Camp
All Princeton University Sports Camp participants are required to provide copies of immunization records from a physician’s office or a valid medical and/or religious exemption from immunization. All campers must provide records that satisfy the immunization schedule set forth at Immunization of Pupils in School, N.J.A.C. 8:57-4 or provide an official letter from a physician indicating that immunization is in progress. Your camper WILL NOT be allowed to participate without the appropriate medical records.
The online registration system works best with Firefox and Chrome.
Due to high demand, many camps fill prior to the registration deadline and early registration is recommended. Once a camp reaches capacity or the registration deadline, we are unable to add additional campers. Walk-up registrations are not accepted for any camp or clinic.
In the event a camp does not reach capacity, the following registration deadlines apply:
- Overnight Camps close 2 days prior to the camp.
- Day Camps and Clinics close at 11:59pm the night before camp.

Cross Country is a TEAM Sport! The Princeton Cross Country Camp is a great place to establish teammate bonds that will progress throughout the season. Discounts are given to groups of 5 or more campers from the same school or team who register together. To receive the group rate, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
The camp will be held on the Princeton University campus, one of the most beautiful and historic campuses in the world. Campers will utilize Princeton's 6000 meter on-campus cross country course, numerous outdoor trails surrounding campus as well as the William Weaver Track Stadium and indoor track. Overnight campers will reside in Princeton University dormitories and dine in one of the school's dining halls. All dormitories will have adult supervision with a minimum of a 10:1 camper to counselor ratio plus a Health Director.
Camp dorms do not have air conditioning. We recommend you bring a fan with you to camp.
