So...Who Attends and What do we do?
The camp has evolved from a strictly running camp for high school cross
country athletes to a fitness camp for anyone. We have more non-cross
country athletes than hardcore runners. We have also attracted about an
even split of middle schoolers to high schoolers.
The mix of talents levels, sport interests and ages has made for an unique
and very entertaining summer camp. The first hour of the camp is mostly
stretching, agility and strength activities. The second hour is mostly running
intervals, repetitions, circuit training or relay races. We have different
distances for different sport interests. So, not everyone runs the cross
At least every other day, we have watermelon or hot dog parties after running.
We often break for soccer or dodge ball games. The camp takes several
detours to other BREC parks for adventure runs and swimming. There will
be MANY opportunities to have fun while getting fit.

Who are we?
Coach Borel's Summer Fitness Camp is an opportunity
for 5th through 12th graders to get off the couch in the
summer, join similar age students from area schools
and experience a challenging yet entertaining physical
exercise camp. We have been doing this for over 12
years and have grown to serve over 115 athletes in 2012.
Coach Borel is the 16 time LTFCA La. Coaches Award
recipient in Cross Country and also serves as distance
track coach for a local high school. Coach Borel has
coached 6 individual state champion runners, 9
individual state champion runner-ups, 16 state champion
CC teams and dozens of All-State and All-Metro athletes.
What's new for 2013
In 2013, Coach Borel's Summer Fitness Camp will be adding new circuit training stations. These
new stations will strengthen athletes and make them more flexible and agile. All fall sports (football,
cross country, soccer, basketball and volleyball) use these physical traits. We think that these
stations will make you a better athlete.
We will always meet by soccer field #2 at Independence Park. There will be a large tent for us to
get protection from the sun and rain. There are restrooms available on site.
