HHS XC Paws Up Team Camp

Our site may not be quite as posh as the Resort at Paws Up (right next door), but it’s the company you camp with that makes the adventure meaningful and memorable. Every Bengal runner is expected to attend camp. This is a great team building opportunity and a great way to get to know each other, whether eating, running, star-gazing, collaborating on skits or playing games.
