Threshold Athletics is excited to offer a unique cross country camp experience in the summer of 2019. Campers will receive elite coaching and athlete-education from established NCAA and professional coaches while touring some of America's finest universities.  Campers will also experience the rich history and culture of the city of Boston.

Who Should Attend?

Why Should I Attend?

This camp is designed to give cross country runners that are interested in attending an Ivy League institution the opportunity to tour and visit multiple campuses while also improving their training and athletic profiles. 


Sample Schedule:

Any rising 9th through 12th grade cross country athlete that is interested in a cross country camp that delivers elite athletic, academic and cultural experiences. There are no specific academic or athletic requirements to attend this camp. 

Parent Inclusion:

This camp will promote academic and athletic achievement among the campers. And, by providing a group experience, we are able to provide an itinerary that is more fun and more affordable than traveling as a small group or family.  

We offer two options for parents interested in participating in our camp as chaperones. Space is limited and restricted to one parent per camper.

  • Option 1: Parents receive Room and Meals only. This option is intended for parents that are primarily interested in travelling with their students. 

  • Option 2: Parents receive Room and Meals and participate in all camp activities, including campus tours. 

June 23-29, 2019

This year's camp will visit the campuses of Harvard University in Boston, MA; Brown University in Providence, RI; and Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH.

Sean McManus, Director of Threshold Athletics and Olympic and national champion coach in the sports of cross country and track, will serve as camp director. Additional counselors and staff will be comprised of current and former NCAA athletes and coaches, with a specific focus on those with Ivy League experience. 

A full list of counselors will be shared with campers prior to camp.

All campers, staff and chaperones will be housed on the campus of Boston University. Camp fees include all dormitory housing, meals, local transportation, facility access, campus tours and activities.

Arrangements are made so campers will be in dorms only with other minors and associated chaperones. There are no college students housed in summer dorms. 

Campers are responsible for travel to and from Boston. For those arriving by air, campus is accessible by public transportation or taxi. 


Camp fees include all local transportation. For out of town campus tours, this will be by private charter. Activities in Boston are accessible on foot or via short trips on public transit. 

In addition to training and campus tours, campers will also experience some of the historical and cultural activities in Boston. Planned activities include: 

  • Boston Duck Tours and/or Freedom Trail

  • Boston Museum of Science

  • New England Aquarium and Whale Watch

Campers will receive education in several areas to prepare them for their cross country seasons. These areas should include:

  • Foundations of Training

  • Nutrition

  • Mental Preparation for Cross Country

  • Preparing for College

Training runs will be conducted in a variety of locations, both in Boston and during the campus visits. Additional training may consist of strength, core or cross training conducted outside or in the Boston University Fitness Center.
