Event Description

Every summer, dozens of Camp Menominee campers and counselors gather together on the last Sunday of Camp for "Doc's Run". Years ago, camp doctor Ken "Doc" Miller was on his annual visit to Menominee and wanted to start getting in shape. So he started to walk around camp. That walk eventually turned into a jog, which then became a run as his endurance grew. Each day he would go out for a run, and eventually he took that run off-campus. His favorite path was one that began at the corner of County Roads O and D and ended at Menominee's basketball courts. It was 4.5 miles of joy. He loved the serenity of his morning run which takes you over the Wisconsin River at the 1 mile mark, winds up and around to a perfect rest/water stop at 2-miles, let's you wave hello to the girls camp just before mile 3, and tricks you into thinking you are close to the finish line when you turn on County D...but you still have 1.5 miles left!

Over time, the counselors and campers started joining Doc on his run and it became an annual tradition at Camp. In 2021, we saw over 100 participants (the most ever) in Doc's run! We had runners, walkers, and people on roller blades do their best to complete the 4.5 miles. 

In 2022, we hope to top it AND add an element of fundraising to the mix. We are going to run/walk to raise money for camp scholarship funds, the Nate Wasserman Camp Fund and Camp for All Kids. We hope you will support your friend or family member on their run/walk this year!
