Attire for campers is simple: sneakers or sandals, cotton socks, tee shirt and a long-sleeve shirt, and shorts (baggy shorts are discouraged as they may become entangled in the equipment).The fee will be refunded if, after the initial session, the camper decides to withdraw.
The Camp will emphasize basic rowing technique, equipment familiarization, and water safety. Emphasis will be on sweep rowing (one oar), but all campers will also experience sculling (2 oars).
