Junior Loppet Athletes at Adventure Camp and LNR Juniors
June 23, 2015

Through our first years at Nellie Stone Johnson, Anwatin and Northeast Middle Schools we tried many forms of practices to keep kids involved through the summer. Then we realized, we already run all the programs we could ever need. So for the past two years, summer practices for these teams have consisted of taking athletes to Adventure Camp, FAST KIDS, and for those that are really getting fast, to LNR Juniors. This year, Anwatin and Nellie Stone Johnson have each brought five kids per week to Adventure Camp so far, and are each bringing 3-5 kids to LNR Juniors. Being able to work with smaller numbers and have the kids interact with other coaches and counselors has really helped us increase their motivation and give individual attention that will let some of our most motivated athletes really make huge gains this summer.
