Crew: Learn to Row Camp
Rowing develops teamwork, cooperative skills, effective communication and positive character development through building physical strength, endurance, coordination, and self-confidence. This camp will introduce children to the sport of rowing.  Many rowers choose to continue through the Summer and return in the Fall to row with the Shen Rowing Program.  All rowers must take a swim assessment to evaluate comfort and proficiency in the water in the rare event athletes end up in the water.    

All rowers must pass a swimming proficiency test which will be held on the Friday evening prior to each session start from  6:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. at the Locust Lane pool.

Wear snug fitting exercise-type pants and bring sneakers, socks and water bottle.  Sunscreen highly recommended.

Junior Golf Camp at Van Patten Golf Club
Junior Golf Camp at Van Patten Golf Club
The golf camp at Van Patten Golf Club will serve as a great entry level opportunity 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 working on all aspects of the game which will also include 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.

Kids Summer Tennis Program
Kids Summer Tennis Program

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".

This program meets two days per week for 4 weeks.  A child may be registered for all eight days or any six of the eight days.  Attendance will be taken daily.  

Highly Recommended: Sunscreen and water 
Equipment Needed: Junior tennis racquet.
Racquet size is determined by the child’s age and ability.      Ages 7-8:  21”-23” racquet,    Ages 9-10:  23”-25” racquet.
Choose the smaller size unless your child makes consistently good contact with the ball with both forehand and backhand.
