We’ve wrapped up our June Camp in Marine and are now back at our respective homes. One of the highlights of the camp was getting together with the St Croix Valley Ski Club, a Minnesota Youth Ski League club, for an afternoon of skills development and games. This is the third summer we’ve worked with these young athletes and it’s cool to see so many familiar faces of kids that are getting older and faster.
The kids really enjoyed running the ladders, jumping the hurdles, and passing the medicine ball, which served as a baton in the relays.
It was one of the only clear afternoons we had all camp. The kids just finished their last day of school the previous day, so they had a little extra energy to burn off.
Our afternoon with the St Croix Valley club was a highlight of the camp. Thanks to CXC Youth Director Everett Myers for getting this event organized. It was cool to see the building blocks of a strong ski community taking shape.
