The Naperville North Girls' Cross-Country 2020 Camping Trip Page!
The 2020 Trip has been cancelled, but join us on August 13th for our overnight!
WHAT:This will be our 25th ANNUAL CAMPING TRIP! It is a chance for us, as a new team, to run, swim, play games, eat, and generally have fun TOGETHER before the season and the school year get underway! We will be moving the camping trip to the FIRST THREE DAYS OF THE SEASON. We will leave on Tuesday, August 11th and return on Thursdy. We will head to Macomb, Illinois for the camping trip. We will camp in tents in Macomb that weekend for two nights. WENEED YOU TO ATTEND!
WHEN:This year's trip will be from Tuesday, August 11th to Thursday, August 13th.
WHO:ALL INTERESTED CROSS-COUNTRY RUNNERS (Freshmen, you too!) But please note the following:
AGAIN THIS YEAR -- IF YOU ARE A RETURNER, YOU MUST HAVE RUN CONSISTENTLY ALL SUMMER LONG. FRESHMEN AND NEWCOMERS ARE EXEMPT FROM THIS REQUIREMENT. PLEASE PLAN AHEAD IF YOU WANT TO GO. WE NEED RUNNERS COMMITTED TO OUR TEAM'S SUCCESS IN ATTENDANCE.
WHERE:Spring Lake Park, Macomb, Illinois (This is Mr. Iverson's home town!)
WHY: This is a VITAL part of our development as a TEAM! It allows each athlete to get to know her teammates! EVERYONE HAS A ROLE IN THIS PROGRAM, NO MATTER HOW FAST SHE RUNS! The camping trip allows us to get away and discuss what we'd like to accomplish over the course of the season. Cross-Country is truly a TEAM SPORT, and most people don't understand that. If we are to accomplish anything this year, it will be done as a team and not as a group of individuals.
HOW:The cost is $120, and forms and checks (made out to NNHS) should be given to Mr. Iverson by Friday, July31st -- the last day of summer camp. Please also note that cost should NOT be a factor in the decision whether to go! If cost is an issue, please privately contact Mr. Iverson and arrangements can be made. NOTE THAT WE ARE STILL GOING OVERNIGHT TO THE PLEASANT VALLEY INVITATIONAL. TO THAT END, WE ARE WORKING THE NAPERVILLE TRIATHLON ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 1st AND SUNDAY, AUGUST 2nd. THIS WILL SERVE AS A FUNDRAISER FOR THIS WEEKEND AND SHOULD PAY FOR THE HOTEL ROOMS ON FRIDAY NIGHT! THIS IS ON THE CALENDAR IN THE XC BOOKS AND MUST BE ATTENDED BY ALL TEAM MEMBERS WHO CAN ON THAT MORNING!
This page is dedicated to convincing each and every one of you to put in a GREAT summer and then come on this very special trip. It will provide some memories to last a lifetime!
