A Burpee Mile?
Want something to train for?
Each camp features this optional event. Campers who complete the burpee mile individually will spend 1-3 hours completing a burpee + broad jump movement. This isn't a race, it's a slog. Rain or shine, this event is on. Those who complete the entire event as an individual get a free Finisher shirt and bragging rights.
If you'd like to do a burpee mile as a relay, we encourage you to find friends at camp and form a relay team. Average time to finish a burpee mile as a 4 person relay team is 40 minutes - 1 hour. Joining a relay team? Don't worry, you'll still be sore. That's a lot of burpees.
The burpee mile is all-terrain: Bring Gloves!
We support the Campership Funds (scholarship funds) at each location where we stay based on finishers of the burpee mile. The more campers who complete the burpee mile? The more cash goes to help underprivileged kids go to camp where you did.
