Help out with Summer Learn-to-Row Camps

Helping the coaches at Learn-to-Row summer camps is a great way to get back on the water and to teach new rowers over the summer.

The camps are a valuable source of capital funds ($$ to buy/maintain boats and stuff) and new rowers for Fall season.

We’re offering 6 sessions again this summer, but need at least 4 newbies per session to make it work (or that session will be canceled.) Coaches find it helpful to have 4-5 experienced BRC rowers to fill the boat and recruit!

Camps run 2 hours, morning or afternoon, Monday-Friday for 2 weeks.

Sign up here, so we know when you’re available.  Get your friends, neighbors and cousins to register!

Download, print and distribute these flyers to promote LTR.
