Salisbury Parks and Recreation will present a camp for children 8 to 14 years of age who are interested in becoming runners. The camp will be at Catawba College, and will run Monday through Friday, July 11-15. Campers will meet 9-11:30 a.m. all week; lunch will be provided. Parents should pick up their children by noon.
There will be individual and group instruction on running technique and form, stretching and strengthening, nutrition and running shoes.
Campers will need to bring appropriate running apparel and a water bottle each day. On Friday, they will go swimming and should bring a swimsuit and towel that day. Cost of the camp is $40 for Salisbury residents and $60 for non-residents.
Instructors are David Freeze, U.S. Association of Track and Field Nationally Certified coach and licensed personal trainer, and Kim Miller, avid runner. For more information, call Parks and Rec at 704-638-5289 and 704-310-674. Information is also available at
