If you will be attending camp with a friend from another team - let us know and we will house you together. Q. How will I be housed if I attend camp on my own? A. We house all athletes who attend camp on their own with others who attend on their own. We also place the individuals with our most outgoing counselor - and the group bonds very quickly. You will make a new set of friends at camp! Q. Are coaches really free? A. Yes, one (per team) 1st time to Runner's Workshop camp attends free with 2 or more registered athletes. Additional coaches from the same team pay 50% of the camp tuition. This fee is waived if the team has 14 runners registered, 21 for a third coach. We will also pro-rate this 50% for teams that bring over 7 runners but less than 14. Coaches attending with no runners pay 50% tuition. For coaches returning to Runner's Workshop for a second or more summer- one coach attends free for every 7 runners they bring, and the additional coaches works the same as mentioned above for the 1st time coaches .
