Athletic Training Camp

If you had already registered for camp, you should be getting a refund within the next couple of weeks. We are working to get that to you as soon as we can!

The information below will remain posted for future reference. Although camp has been cancelled for summer 2020, this is very likely what camp will look like in summer 2021. 

We are offering two levels of athletic training camp that will run concurrently.

  • Level one will be for students that have not yet attended athletic training camp.
  • Level two will be for students who have attended camp and are returning to advance their skills even further.

Below is basic information on this year's camp. For more information, contact our department at

Applications for the Letendre Student Athletic Training Summer Camp Scholarship is open now through April 1, 2020.  This scholarship provides funds for high school students interested in careers in the sports medicine field of athletic training to attend a summer camp. The scholarship recipient may select the camp s/he attends. The award will have a $750 cap.  

The 2019 Bertrand & Blanche Letendre Memorial Student Athletic Training Summer School Scholarship has been awarded to Sydney Spenard. Sydney is a junior at Manchester Memorial High School in Manchester, NH. Sydney’s athletic injuries led her to the care of her high school athletic trainer where she discovered the field of athletic training and piqued her interest in helping injured athletes as a future career. She currently participates in field hockey and lacrosse at her high school, though she has dedicated time to many other sports throughout her youth.
