Awesome Camp

My son had an awesome time at camp this year! The Cal Men's Rowing staff was tough yet encouraging and extremely helpful in working on my son's fundamentals and knowledge of the sport. He felt challenged and pushed but beyond his limits. He made a few friends with the other rowers and developed a great rapport with the coxswains he worked with. Looking forward to next year!
