Lake Union Crew Junior Summer Camp


Camp Details

Looking for something to do during the summer that is fun, exciting and challenging? Then come row with Lake Union Crew and do something different and positive with your summer vacation. Meet new friends, learn a cool sport, and spend the day on the water. We are dedicated to providing a fun, unique, and challenging experience that you will not forget.

We accept rowers as young as 12 years old in our sessions. All campers are required to pass a float test which LUC must keep on file- it's always a good idea to have the lifeguard stamp/sign a few float tests in case you need an original for another activity.
