Our mission is to create a unique full-team sleep-away camp experience by offering an optimal environment and running community for high school cross-country athletes and their coaches to foster collective success.
TrailHeads XC Running Camps value collaboration among experts in the areas of coaching, teaching, athletic training, running equipment, endurance nutrition, sports psychology, strengthing, cross-training, etc. while having time to experience traditional summer camp activities beyond running such as campfires, aquatic sports, gaming, fun team competitions, and trail hikes to name a few.
TrailHeads XC Running Camps, originally The Cape Cod Running Camp, was established in 2021 after the COVID-19 pandemic had caused our previous facility on Cape Cod Bay to shut down. For over a decade The Cape Cod Running Camp was an integral part of the high school running community. TrailHeads embodies the motto coined by The Cape Cod Running Camp,
“I can and I will”. Now nestled in northern New Jersey, TrailHeads XC Running Camps hosts over 130 runners ages 13-18 of all experience levels annually. Our camp aims to foster a positive relationship with running while teaching valuable life lessons such as perseverance, team work, and self-trust.
TrailHeads XC features an award-winning camp staff. Among our coaching staff are former NCAA and New Balance Nationals (NBN) All-Americans who will serve as counselors. Collectively, our staff features over 200 years of running, racing, and coaching experience, led by Camp Director Sean Robinson, a 2015 New Jersey State Coaches Association Hall of Fame Coach, and his team of NJSIAA State Championship coaches.
Our supporters mean the world to us. Do you have questions or comments about our running camp? Send us a message, and we will get back to you soon.
