Ground Up Adventures’ Girls Adventure Running Camp is a 4-day experience for young girls that focuses on building physical and mental skills through an engaging curriculum and fun, accessible running and adventure-based activities.
The purpose of the camp is to teach skills that facilitate physical activity, adventure, positive mental health, and empowerment. The camp is open to all girls ages 9 - 14, regardless of athletic ability or experience.
Each day will include a lesson targeting specific mental skills that are then applied during the adventure running activities for the day. Camp activities will take place on the Grand Forks Greenway near Lincoln Drive Park and Turtle River State Park (transportation will be provided to and from the park by the camp directors). Campers should be dropped off and picked up each day at Lincoln Drive Park (120 Euclid Ave, Grand Forks, ND).
