Campers are housed in the Midshipmen’s dormitory, Bancroft Hall. Rooms are doubles, triples and quads complete with sink, shower, and lockable closets for valuables. All meals from Sunday dinner to Thursday breakfast are provided in King Hall, the Midshipmen’s dining facility.
During the day, campers are under the guidance of experienced coaches and college-aged counselors. At night, counselors and coaches stay in the campers' dormitory, providing 24-hour supervision.
Please note that as 2022 will mark a return to our residential overnight camps, all campers and camp staff must be fully vaccinated (2 weeks past their second dose or booster) against COVID-19 to participate.

Our camps strive to fulfill two primary goals:
1. To foster a love of rowing in our campers.
2. To aid in the personal development of each individual camper.
To attain these goals, we boat campers in eights according to ability and experience and maintain a low (10:1) athlete to coach ratio. For water practices, campers are kept with the same coach and boat of athletes for the week to allow a consistent platform for improvement. The boats are brought together as one group for land seminars covering a range of topics including – but not limited to – land/erg training, nutrition, mobility, strength training, coxing, and collegiate recruiting.
