Rowing develops teamwork, cooperative skills and positive character traits, while building physical strength, endurance, coordination, and self-confidence. During the summer, new rowers are introduced to the sport. All rowers must pass a swimming proficiency test that is offered the first Monday evening of each two week session, at Locust Lane pool. Many rowers return in the fall to row with the Shen Crew Club.
Wear snug fitting exercise-type pants and bring socks and water bottle.

The golf camp at Van Patten Golf Club will serve as a great entry level oppotunity for kids to experience the game of golf. The program will be geared towards those that are looking for a first time exposure to the game as well as those that will be looking to sharpen their skills. It will be both fun and rewarding. The program will be staffed with a PGA professional as well as at least one PGA Apprentice, guaranteeing a high level of instruction. There is a 16-player maximum this year to each class, insuring a productive student to teacher ratio. We will also be offering a second session if you are unable to make the first. Both sessions are identical in progression; therefore we recommend that you choose one or the other, not both as we will be starting from square one at the start of the second session. We will be playing on our course at least once! Bring a drink, snack, and sun protection. Each player should have his or her own equipment; however a limited amount will be available.
This program is designed to introduce children to the fun and excitement of tennis. Children who are new to the game and those with experiences are encouraged to attend. We utilize the United States Tennis Association's Youth Tennis format. This innovative program scales down the adult game to fit the size and abilities of young players. The game utilizes smaller courts, smaller racquets, a lower net, lower and slower bouncing balls and easier scoring. This enables kids to start playing right away by "playing to learn" rather than "learning to play".
