My girl isn't a big runner; is this camp for her?

Yes! We are much more than a running program, and every participant can benefit from the experience of building confidence through accomplishment while participating in our rich, curriculum-based, age-appropriate, interactive lessons. Expect lots of games, talking, laughing and processing in addition to movement activities each day. When we say run, we mean run, walk, skip, roll or push, just as long as you are moving foward!

What does the registration fee include?

Your camp registration fee includes all lesson materials, including Camp GOTR curriculum, a journal, activity sheets, a Camp GOTR t-shirt, a Camp GOTR water bottle, a GOTR bracelet and sunglasses. In addition, your fee covers afternoon experiences like movement classes, art classes, and special guests. 

We can't afford the camp registration fee, but our child would love to participate. How does the scholarship program work?

Don't let cost stop you from participating! We are committed to making Camp GOTR accessible to all who want to particpate! Thanks to generous donors and community supporters, camp scholarships are available. Please contact Executive Director Emily Clark at emily.clark@girlsontherun.org to request a discount.
