    Beneficial training with lots of great people

    August 25, 2019: My daughter had a great time at camp. She made improvements and learned things she has been able to put into practice when she came home. She also made new friends that she has kept in touch with. She’s already looking forward to returning next summer.

    Special experience with a fun group of people

    August 22, 2019: My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the multiple practices each day. She said the campers always had something to do whether it was on the water in the Duke boats learning new techniques and drills or visiting the Duke athletic store. Her favorite parts of the camp were the erg session and the strength and conditioning class in the weight room. I wish the lineups were varied more, but a great camp for rowers who want to experience what it’s like to row in college
