Campers are encouraged to come to five days a week; the classes are offered Monday through Friday at 5:30 a.m., 6:45 a.m., 9:15 a.m., 12:15 p.m. (30-minute class), 5:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m., and 7:30 p.m., and on Saturday mornings at 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. For less extreme participants, thrice-weekly attendance may also yield a sizeable crop of results.
