Camp Information

Cross Country Camp is Monday, August 21 through Wednesday, August 23, 2023. 

In order to attend cross country camp:

  • All athletes need to attend the first week of practice (August 14-18) to attend camp.  In other words, an athlete cannot miss the first week of practice and expect to attend camp.  This is out of safety concerns and well-being for the athlete.
  • It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that 9th Graders complete 150 miles, 10th Graders complete 175 miles, and 11th and 12th graders complete 200 miles of summer running. This is imperative to handle the rigors of the workouts at camp. 
  • All athletes need to be able to run 2 miles without stopping.  This is a requirement to help ensure safety and supervision while at camp.

We will meet at the West Entrance of the high school on Monday morning. A packing list is below. 

Camp is located at: Faith Haven Camp, 38360 N. Eagle Lake Rd, Battle Lake, MN.

Camp phone number: 218-864-5303

The camp is located on Eagle Lake, located 7 miles South of Battle Lake on Highway 78, then 1 mile East.

DIRECTIONS: From the cities, take I-94 past Alexandria about 25 miles to the Ashby exit, then take Hwy 78 approximately 10-11 miles North. There will be Faith Haven signs, then take a right and the drive 1 mile East to camp.
