For track athletes, camp or school attendance is a common way to broaden horizons, hone skills, and learn by doing from specialist coaches and veteran athletes. It's a chance to meet new friends and become immersed for a week or two in track & field or running, an experience which can have noticeable effect on an athlete's progression in the sport. Publication of the following camp/school names and information should not be construed as a recommendation of any camp by T&FN. This listing is offered as information only about available camps. Parents and athletes should acquaint themselves more fully about facilities, staff, etc., before deciding which camp is best for them. Some of the camps exclude graduating seniors. The listing below, with many detailed display ads, originally appeared in the May 2010 issue of Track & Field News.
