The goals of the camp are to increase technical ability, strength and aerobic conditioning, with an emphasis on skill acquisition and learning to train. This camp will introduce incoming varsity rowers to the way the varsity women train, how we row and the culture we believe leads not only to athletic success but to well rounded strong women.
