Camps feature on-snow technique and strength sessions, race preparation and strategies for Junior National Qualifying races, and the upcoming high school racing season.

The goal for each camp is to have those in attendance leave with a sense of preparedness and improved skiing skills.

Each camp will have a specific training focus including strength, volume and intensity while still maintaining all elements of ski training.

2016 CXC Dream Camp Athletes Named

Following the end of another successful CXC Youth Cup season, seven U14 girls and eight U14 boys were selected to attend the second annual CXC Dream Camp, July 5th through the 11th, at the U.S. Olympic Training Site – NMU in Marquette (MI).

“As summer training and camps get underway, I am particularly excited for the second annual CXC Dream Camp in Marquette,” said CXC Junior Development Coach, Karmen Whitham. “Having the Dream Camp in Marquette is especially rewarding for these younger athletes, because it sets a precedent for how athletes can have really cool adventures outside as ski training, without compromising the quality of the workout.”

The 2015 CXC Dream Camp Athletes.

These athletes were chosen based on their results from the 2015-2016 Youth Cup season and will join together for six days of tough training.

The goal of the Dream Camp is to bring together top U14 boys and girls to train and receive feedback, educational materials, while offering a glimpse at the bigger picture of Nordic ski racing. These collaborative camps provide a motivating environment for the athletes to positively push and improve together.

“Activities during this camp include: beautiful trail running, agility and technique rollerskiing, early morning runs, and, of course, hill bounding up Marquette Mountain,” said Whitham. “Each workout usually ends with a highly anticipated dip in Lake Superior. Overall the location, roster, and schedule sets us up for a really fantastic week of training!”
