Campers will be instructed on the basic skills required to succeed at a top rowing college. Our campers represent a variety of athletic backgrounds. Many have never rowed before, while some have extensive high school experience. We will tailor the camp experience to fit the needs of the individuals.

Health services staff will be on call to offer assistance. All sessions of Badger Sports Camps are open to any and all entrants, limited only by number, age, grade level and/or gender.
