Learn to row for free this summer on the Mississippi River!
The Golden Gopher Rowing Team in collaboration with the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) offers a limited number of free registrations for a one-week rowing camp hosted by current athletes and coaches from the University of Minnesota women’s rowing team. These elite rowers will be on hand to teach their championship skills to the campers. All kids ages 11 years old and older are encouraged to send in their application for this great opportunity!
Applicants will be put into a lottery system to be selected for the camp of their choice. Selected campers will receive a one-week camp. The camps are free, but space is limited.
