Q: What if my child has never rowed before?
NO rowing experience is necessary for our Day Camps. They are designed to teach kids of all skill levels how to safely enjoy the sport of rowing.
Q: Is it safe?
Yes. We have at least one coach per boat on the water and spend extensive amounts of time covering safety. Our coaching staff will never put a camper in a situation that they are not prepared to handle. In general we set the pace of the camp to be interesting and challenging but we only advance to more complex skills once the campers have demonstrated and ability to handle it.
Q: Is the camp coed?
Our day camps are open to all kids ages 11 - 18. We typically get an even balance of boys and girls. When possible we try to keep kids grouped together with other campers of the same age and strength. Decisions for groupings are not made specifically on gender, but rather to make sure everyone is in a group that they can learn in.
Q: What should my child wear to camp?
Campers should wear comfortable clothes appropriate for exercise. Shorts, tshirts, socks and running shoes are the basics they will need. We also recommend hats and sunglasses for our time on the water as it can be sunny and hot. Some campers also prefer to bring workout gloves or athletic tape to help prevent some of the blisters that can arise from handling an oar. This is not required, but can be helpful.
Q: Is lunch provided at the day camps?
No. Campers are required to bring their own lunch. They should also bring water bottles so they can stay hydrated throughout the day.
Q: What is Stanford Rowing Camps' Tax ID number?
Many parents request our Tax ID number for their taxes. It is 94-1156365.
