This summer, a 16-year-old Londoner successfully hosted her own summer camp in Fernie.

Silver medal winner of the London Youth Games, Georgia Fear, brought her strong passion for running to Fernie last week, hosting a four-day running camp.

“I love it,” she said after running a relay on the Fernie Secondary Track last Wednesday.

“The kids work really hard.”

Ten children between the ages of eight and 13 came out to run with Fear at her ‘Catch Me If You Can’ running camp last week.

“There’s so many more than I thought,” she said.

“I want to try and do it every year.”

The four-day camp ran from August 5 to August 9, with children participating in relays and sprints.

The camp catered to all children, regardless of their fitness level.
