Registration for the Craftsbury Outdoor Center’s High School XC Running Camp (June 28-July 4, 2015)  is open and is filling fast.  If you are interested in going, let Pierre Mikhail know to reserve a spot in our vans then contact Craftsbury after completing their online form. We will depart the morning June 27 and return late July 4.  Registration details can be found here.  One great way to have a great XC season is to do some running in spring and summer.  Cross country is a summer sport played in the fall.
