What’s new for 2011 so far…

For two years we’ve run the Wild Goose Rowing Camp and built what we think is a really good camp that takes the time to teach proper rowing techniques and give rowers a chance to row in boats they normally wouldn’t.

This winter Wild Goose Rowing became a part of The Chesapeake Camps, and will be known from here on out as “Chesapeake Crew Camps”. There has been a Chesapeake Crew Camp for girls for a number of years, and we’re excited to team up and run some great camps in the coming summers.

The boys camp will run just the same as the Goose camps did, and even better in many ways. We’re lining up some great new coaches for our staff this summer, and have some other things planned that we’ll talk about as the summer creeps up.


First session camp staff

Hugh McAdam will be joining us this year as a coach for the first session of camp, July 5-9.  Hugh is a 2008 graduate of Washington College, where he was captain and MVP.  In his senior year he was part of the lightweight four that made the finals at the Dad Vails, finishing 4th, the highest finish for Washington College in over a decade.

Hugh has continued to compete since graduating.  He has rowed for Undine in Philadelphia, and is climbing the ladder of ranked lightweights in the United States on his quest for a spot on the US National Team.

He is currently an assistant coach at Skidmore College in Saratoga, NY.
