What does a day of Camp GOTR look like?

Camp GOTR days are packed with tons of fun activities! 

During the first half of the day, trained volunteer coaches lead girls through our research-based Camp GOTR curriculum. Girls will build life skills through dynamic discussions, exciting games, physical activity, and arts and crafts. Session 1 focuses on emotions, and Session 2 focuses on friendships.

In the afternoon, campers and coaches will embark on a new adventure each day! Activities include scavenger hunts and nature walks, trivia competitions, community service projects, Zumba dance parties, outdoor lawn games, and more!

My girl isn't a big runner; is this program for her? OR My girl is already a skilled runner. Is this program for her?

Yes! We are much more than a running program, and every participant can benefit from the experience of building confidence through accomplishment while participating in our rich, curriculum-based, age-appropriate, interactive lessons. Expect lots of games, talking, laughing and processing in addition to running at each practice. And know that when we say run, we mean run, walk, skip, roll or push, just as long as you are moving foward!

What does the program fee include?

Though our cost per particpant is $280, through generous donors we're able to offer the 10-week, 20-lesson program for $185. Your program registration fee includes all lesson materials, including GOTR curriculum, activity sheets, lap counters and more, a GOTR t-shirt, a bib entry into the end-of-season 5K, a finisher's medal, a GOTR water bottle and a healthy snack at every practice.

We can't afford the program registration fee, but our child would love to participate. How does the scholarship program work?

Don't let cost stop you from participating! We are committed to making Girls on the Run accessible to all who want to join. As of the Fall 2022 season, program registration fees are based on income. The online registration form will walk you through a few questions to find the fee that is right for your family based on a sliding scale.

When does the 10-week season begin?

Practices will begin the week of September 26th. The culminating event will be the 5K on Sunday, December 11th. More information will be shared by the GOTR staff and by your girl's coaches once the season begins.

Do girls need to attend both days each week in order to register?

Yes! Since most of our teams fill up quickly, if your girl will be unable to attend all the sessions, please save room for a girl who can, and consider joining us in a future season when she can enjoy the entire program.

Is there a way for me to sponsor a participant for a season?

Yes! As a mission-driven 501(c)3, Girls on the Run relies on generous donors in order to provide more than $135,000 in program scholarships each year for families in need. If you are interested in sponsoring a participant or team of girls, email info@gotrhr.org.
