The Killington Mountain School Dryland Camp recently wrapped up for the session. The camp was for local athletes interested in getting in shape and keeping fit for the upcoming ski and board season. It was made up of six weeks of training on Tuesdays and Thursdays afternoon at the Johnson Rec Center on River Road.
Athletes participated in high performance fitness training, stretching, soccer, hiking, running, and of course kickball.
The camp used a “drop and go” and a “pick up and depart” system for parents and athletes, along with modified practices of mask wearing and social distancing with daily health checks.
In total 23 students participated from Killington and surrounding local towns in the 12-session camp. The town of Killington Recreation Department and Director Sarah Newell helped with guidance and scheduling the camp sessions. The Camp Director was Alexis Voutas and KMS Coaches included Greg, Craig, Claire, Tyler, Pete G., Nori, Kip, Pete D., and Tanner, all who helped to make the camp a big success.
