The 2020 High Performance Adventure Camp is scheduled to take place between July 27 and July 31 at the Stratton Mountain School campus. It will provide a fun week of conditioning, education, field games, and adventures in the mountains of Southern Vermont.
Mornings will focus on circuit training, where campers can work with certified coaches and trainers across disciplines. Alpine coaches, Jim Sullivan, Naga Kusumi, and Will Horstmann, will guide workouts and lifting techniques to develop strength and endurance. Campers will also participate in physical testing during this time, the results of which will be utilized to create an individualized program for each athlete to follow throughout the remainder of the summer and fall.
Campers will also have access to our Air Awareness Center during this time, the best facility of its kind in the Northeast, including a foam pit, Ross trampolines, a Max Air Super trampoline, and a full-size indoor skate park. Freeski and Snowboard Directors, Jesse Mallis and Ross Powers, along with coaching staff, will teach on-tramp fundamentals that are useful in all programs, such as proper trick progressions, improving trampoline skills, tumbling, and air awareness.
Afternoons will be dedicated to fun, with adventures including hiking, swimming, and mountain biking planned alongside visits to a ropes course and alpine slide. Campers will also enjoy daily games on the Stratton Mountain School's Luckenbill Field.
This year, the camp will be restricted to day-campers only, and campers should plan to arrive on campus by 9 a.m. each morning. Activities will begin at 9:15 a.m. and continue until 5 p.m. with lunch served on campus daily. On Friday, July 31, the morning will proceed as usual; however, campers should plan to be picked up at 1 p.m. following lunch and a camp wrap-up session.
All campers should come equipped with the following:
- Day pack
- Running shoes and hiking shoes, or two pair of running shoes
- Water Bottle
- Extra T-shirt
- Bathing suit and towel
- Raincoat if the weather calls for it
