KMS and Elite Camp welcome youth athletes

KILLINGTON—Last week, Killington Mountain School (KMS) and ELITEAM partnered to host Elite Camp, a six-day summer cross-training program for kids 12-14 led by former Olympian Doug Lewis.

Elite Camp is in its 13th year, but this is the first time KMS has hosted. Forty-three campers from around the country came to Killington for a week of athletic conditioning. Athletes included Alpine racers, freestyle athletes, and mountain bikers.

KMS Development Programs and Event Coordinator Alexis Voutas described Lewis’s style as “high-intensity fun.” Campers competed in exercises like burpees, box jumps and pushups, filling every minute with some sort of activity. While there aren’t currently plans for Killington to host the camp again, Voutas said that “KMS hopes for the opportunity to host camp again in the future.”
