A song by two Steens campers

Steens Mountain High Altitude Running Camp

This unique camp is designed to give campers (ages 13-18) a realistic wilderness running and camping experience. To enjoy and respect wilderness beauty through running, hiking and exploring, at high altitudes are the major objectives of this camp. Group and individual instruction will be given in all areas of distance training and racing, with emphasis on performance improvement through self reliance, personal accountability and teamwork strategies. To enhance personal growth, campers must be willing to adapt to lack of urban conveniences not found in the great outdoors. (i.e. cell phones, iPods, tablets, DVD players, and other technos just invented.)

It’s always a pleasure to hear how Steens has affected campers in a positive way. Sienna and Ruby, from Boise High, were campers Session 2, 2012 and wrote a beautiful song influenced by their experience at camp.

They and their band, Calico the Band, have released this song as well as two others as an EP. Check it out and show them some support. You can purchase the entire EP or just the song “Steens”.
