This camp in Vernon, BC is exactly the experience for the weekend-warriors in BC’s rowing population. The camp will include two and a half days of rowing, cross-country mountain biking and hiking. Experienced Masters coaches will facilitate technical focused rows and video analysis each morning, followed by an exciting non-rowing experience each afternoon on Silver Star Mountain. Participants will have the chance to bond over their new sport experiences and enjoying a group dinner each evening. If you’re looking for an active way to spend the Labor Day Long Weekend, this is it!

Guest Coach Jessica Lowe learned to row at Boston University and from 2000 – 2010 was a member of Seattle’s Pocock Rowing Center where she helped obtain several wins for the club as stroke and team member of the Women’s 8+ including a Bronze in the Head of the Charles Club 8+, 1st place at the San Diego Crew Classic and several wins at the Opening Day regatta, Canadian Masters and US Masters National Rowing Championships.  As masters coach at the Vancouver Rowing Club she shepherded  the W 40+ 4+ to a 2nd place finish at the 2017 Head of the Charles Regatta. Jessica has also competed in sculling and appreciates the differences between the two disciplines. At the Vancouver Rowing Club she coaches both sculling and sweep. She is passionate in helping rowers establish a strong technical and fitness base that will allow them to successfully pursue any level of rowing they desire.

Registration includes a limited-edition Rowing BC Masters Camp long-sleeved technical shirt for all participants. All participants must be confident rowing a single or pair.
