This camp is amazing. With years of experience it is insane how much you can still manage to learn and correct. This camp is able to help coxswains achieve any goals imaginable regarding coxswain skills. The coach directors are incredible and do whatever they can to help you become better. I would recommend this camp to any coxswain whether you are looking to improve, learn, or advance themselves in the sport.
