This first training camp for the new year is held at Eumeralla, the Scout Camp located in a great bush setting in Anglesea on the Surf Coast. It is a popular 4 day camp held in the Term One school holidays depending on the date of Easter. The Team and the Development Squad get together with their ski buddies after a long summer and have fun while doing ‘some’ of solid cross training. It’s a chance to get to know other athletes, get motivated and become more XC Ski focused heading into term 2. Activities usually include Surfing, swimming, ‘fun’ long pole walking session from Bells Beach to Anglesea, Running, beach Olympics, ski specific strength, mobility & ski yoga, hill bounding, mad games and more. In 2013, parents set up a “Rogaine” course and taught athletes the basics of navigation. Night sessions are full of variety and will include a focus on a variety of topics related to being an athlete.
