Lake Casitas High Performance Sculling Camps

Intensive Coaching for Rapid Performance Gains

Personalized training with elite coaches is the best way for experienced rowers to make rapid performance gains and improvements in technique.

Our high performance camps take place in scenic Southern California and include three consecutive days of six highly-personalized water sessions, typically starting on a Friday afternoon and ending Sunday midday.  

Our August 2011 Camp sold out quickly and was
rated by participants.

No camps currently scheduled; contact us to hear
