Trail Camp for Big Kids

We will be staying at River Falls Lodge. River Falls Lodge is a dance hall and event space located on the Saluda River in Marietta, South Carolina. River Falls Lodge is a beautiful mountain dancehall built on the banks of the Saluda River around 1950. The hall has power, water, showers, a fire pit, and is based right along the river with easy access to trail systems all along the foot hills. There will be plenty of space to spread out along the field for camping under the stars but enough shade and cover under South Carolina summer weather! 

  • From Base Camp we will visit the following trail systems and state parks
    • Jones Gap State Park
    • Caesars Head State Park
    • Table Rock State Park
    • Devils Fork State Park (for some swimming and running)
      • State Park Passes will be needed
 
Have you ever been jealous of all the kids who get to go on camps every summer? It sucks being a big kid with responsibility but here at the annual Trail Camp for big Kids, we are now inviting you, the big kid! This camp will focus on a variety of things, team building, navigation, community service, friendship, and of course a bit of running! 
Trail camp is for adults to get away from the busyness of life and a chance to play in the mountains for a long weekend. This camp welcomes all levels of runners and even non-runners! Camp consists of sharing campfire stories, trail stories, bad jokes, and miles throughout the weekend. Camp is a no pressure weekend so you are welcome to run as much or as little as you like. As a coach, ultra runner, and race director I will touch base on all facets of my passions at this years camp! We are eager to fill the spots so if you know anyone that would like to attend please feel free to send them to our website!
