13 Reasons Why You’ll Love NKRC

Why Northeast Kingdom Running Camp? Here are thirteen reasons why we think you’ll love NKRC in Lyndonville, Vermont.
  1. Miles and miles of safe, scenic running. We keep things fresh with a mix of on-campus trail running and bus rides to incredible destination runs. The optional post-run creek soak? That’s just icing on the cake.
  2. A safe, beautiful campus set in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom—named by the National Geographic Society as the most desirable place to visit in the country.
  3. All-star counselors who know the campus, know the running venues, and love sharing the Lyndonville running camp tradition with campers.
  4. A brand new curriculum for today’s camper: interactive breakout sessions, instruction from on-staff PhD candidates (nutrition, biomechanics, and sports psych), and a mix of time-tested and cutting-edge training techniques to help you run your best.
  5. Exclusive use of the Lyndon State College campus throughout both camp sessions.
  6. A program built around the things that make a great running camp experience, rather than those that just make a great running camp brochure. This helps us deliver the best camp experience at the lowest possible cost; we pass the savings on to campers and their families.
  7. Great recreation facilities, including dorm lounges, soccer fields, a beach volleyball court, theater, and “The Hex,” a centralized courtyard perfect for relaxing and meeting up with friends.
  8. Top-notch guest speakers, including Boston Marathon winner Amby Burfoot and nine-time NCAA DI All-American Nicole Blood.
  9. All-you-can-eat dining hall with options for everyone, including vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free. Salad bar? Check. Real Vermont maple syrup? You better believe it.
  10. The educational amenities of Lyndon State College, including its classrooms, state-of-the-art auditorium, and dedicated A/V staff.
  11. A well-marked meadow for pacing practice (we keep you off the track so you can prepare for actual cross country racing).
  12. An unbeatable location in the beautiful Green Mountains, blessed with perfect temperatures, views, and running venues. We offer charter bus service at cost and our full-week program makes the trip well worth it.
  13. The best nightly recreation program on the planet, led by seasoned college staff and expertly trained boredom-busters. You’ll laugh so hard your parents might have to sign a waiver. Your friends will take a photo of you doing something completely ridiculous, and it will be awesome.
