Boot Camp in the Park FAQ
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
WHAT IS THE COST TO PARTICIPATE?
WHEN IS THE PROGRAM OFFERED?
Consider a walk, jog or run around beautiful Centennial Lake following Boot Camp in The Park. If you decide to walk, jog or run the lake before the workout, most walkers would complete the loop on time if they start by 7am. Joggers and runners would likely complete the loop if they started by 7:15am. Our location is Corporate Pavilion H which can be accessed by turning onto Woodland Road off of 108 and taking an immediate left turn into the park. We will post signage near the gate and on our website if the location should change. Once you enter the park, just follow the Get Active Howard County signs.
WHAT IS THE GENERAL FORMAT FOR THE BOOT CAMP?
Every exercise and activity can be modified for those that prefer a slower paced workout and to accommodate all fitness levels. Just as important, the trainers are always ready to kick it up for participants who are up for the challenge.

In 1771 four Quakers from Pennsylvania arrived in the Patapsco Valley to take advantage of the area’s steep slopes and fast running river (and cheap land, for it was poor for farming). The Ellicott brothers established a flour mill here and soon other mills, businesses, and settlements followed. Come join with a local naturalist and author on a walk to discover why geological and geographic features of the Patapsco Valley caught the eye of the Ellicott Brothers, the B&O Railroad, and other settlements followed. Ellicott City and its surrounds have been called “the Silicon Valley of the 1700s and 1800s,” as it sparkled with innovation brought on by bright engineers improving their milling operations.
For this tour, co-sponsored by Patapsco Heritage Greenway and Baltimore Heritage, Inc., we will journey through 450 million years of environmental and social history in two hours to discover why geological and geographic features of the Patapsco Valley caught the eye of the Ellicott Brothers and the B&O Railroad, and encouraged others to settle in this spot. Our tour guide is Mr. Ned Tillman, author of the book Saving the Places We Love: Paths to Environmental Stewardship. (His book is available for reduced price purchase at time of tour reservation.) The walk will include some hills but also plenty of breaks. With thanks to the Howard County Office of Tourism and Promotion, we will start and end the walk at the Welcome Center, with parking behind and a restroom within at the Old Post Office, 8267 Main Street in historic Ellicott City.
Purchase a bucket full of enriched ore, and use the water flume to discover gems you can take home with you. Fun for all ages. Geode cracking, too. For more information about gem mining, check www.mobileminingexperience.com. The petting farm and the rides will also be open on MEMORIAL DAY, Monday May 25th.
