The USD campus, built in Spanish Renaissance style, is situated on 180 acres of mesa overlooking San Diego’s beautiful Mission Bay. It has been rated as one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. In 2017, it was ranked #1 for most beautiful campus in the country. The USD campus provides a safe, secure environment, and add an exciting cultural dimension to the total rowing camp experience. Crew camp participants really absorb the college environment, since they are staying in the college dorms and dining at the Student Life Pavilion, where all college students eat regularly throughout the semester. We always incorporate a tour of the campus during one of our evenings, so that the kids have an idea of the size of the campus and beauty they are surrounded by!
