What a great holiday gift idea for the speed merchant in your family!

The camp is designed to accommodate individuals seeking an exhilarating experience. The coaching staff, made up of Olympic and World Cup medal winners including 1998 Olympic silver medalist Gordy Sheer, offers its knowledge to help experience the sport of luge with an emphasis on fun and safety.

The camps also provide businesses with a one-of-a-kind opportunity for corporate outings, team-building, congratulating top employees or rewarding loyal customers.

The USA Luge Fantasy Camp has been recognized by AOL as one of America’s Top 11 fantasy camp experiences.

The fantasy camp, on Lake Placid’s world class venue which has hosted many World Cup and World Championship events, is also a great chance for the individual interested in experiencing the thrill of a lifetime while supporting the athletes and programs of USA Luge.

The camp is a fund-raising activity for USA Luge (a non-profit organization). A portion of the $2,000 registration fee is tax deductible.

Each participant will spend two to three days on ice, and receive the full Olympic treatment with housing provided at the United States Olympic Training Center, just around the corner from USA Luge headquarters.

Instruction includes proper start, steering and racing techniques, with video review of each training session. A strong emphasis is placed on safety.

Prior to departure, there is a race and farewell banquet attended by all campers and several current members of the U.S. Luge National Team.

Subsequently, each new luge racer will be sent a video review of the camp. Everyone also receives a one-year membership to the U.S. Luge Association.
