Camp Argo

Camp Argo

This activity has finished and is no longer running.

Camp Argo is a week-long program in which participants will row every day. The camp day runs from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.

There is also an After Care Program of games, activities, and time for individual pursuits such as reading offered from 3:00 – 5:30.

In this week-long program, participants ranging in age from 11 to 16 will learn the basic technical aspects of sweep rowing or sculling. They will be given both on-land training using rowing machines and on-water experience in crews of four or eight. They will learn basic rowing terms and the importance of crew rowing. More advanced rowers will be able to fine-tune their technique in both sweep rowing and sculling.

We emphasize this by incorporating fun games that require working together effectively. The Camp Argo experience builds self-confidence, develops skills and above all, new friendships.

Camp participants will be supervised by both an experienced athlete/coach in the boat and by a qualified coach in a well-equipped motorized coach boat.

After-care is supervised by the Head Counselor, and if necessary to maintain ratios, assisted by one of the Junior Counselors.
