Reviews Add Review
Craftsbury is a much larger and more professional operation than many rowing camps. It's difficult to compare it with others because of that - but I'd say it was on another plane.
Craftsbury is a wonderful, special place, but the coaching and organization can be inconsistent and frustrating.
I'm posting this for my father, who as a masters' rower has experienced some of the politics and sluggishness the sport is known for - Craftsbury was a retreat for him into pure rowing. Exactly what he needed.
LOVED IT. As a Masters rower I wasn't sure where I should go - but Craftsbury provided everything for a world-class experience.
