Cross Country University Reviews

See what campers have to say about their experiences at XCU!

“The time at cross country camp was one of the best weeks I’ve ever had. Hands down, smartest decision I have ever made. I have pushed myself in running, at least I thought I have, until I ran with much faster kids then me, but glad so I have to push myself. I loved the fact that motivational speakers come in to tell their story just touched me. It made me realize why I love running so much. Also, when the nutritionist came in, I must say it was a huge EYE OPENER! I learned about so many things that it really pays off to eat healthy. After the nutritionist spoke, I was literally on the phone with my mother telling her what to get at the grocery store. I knew that I was going to stay dedicated when I get home, and I did and I still am. This camp changed me to be a better runner. Beside running there were so many activities I was always busy. I was exhausted at the end of the every day from running to running around playing all the games. Also a huge part I liked was getting closer to my teammates. I barely knew them coming in to camp, walking out of camp on the way home they felt like brothers. It is a shame it is only one week because it flys by. I had an amazing experience this year as a senior and when I was a freshman. I highly suggest to give it a try!” – Jason M., Steinert HS (Senior)
