Charlotte Hollings and John Dunn have spent more than 70 years immersed in the sport of rowing.  Charlotte began in high school while John first picked up an oar as a freshman at Cornell University.  Both have rowed on the U.S. National Team, winning several international medals.  Charlotte’s coaching career has taken her west to Stanford University before heading back east to Boston University and then Cornell University. John remained close to home, coaching at his alma mater, first as the frosh lightweight coach, then varsity lightweight and finally varsity women, for 18 years.  It was at Cornell that Charlotte and John first met and then married in 1995.  In 1998, Charlotte and John tried something a little different and started coaching sculling at a master's camp.  They enjoyed it so much that they immediately set out to start a sculling camp of their own.  Calm Waters Rowing is the culmination of two years of extensive searching and planning.

Each 2-day camp will begin at 7 am and finish at approximately 3 pm. The camps will include rowing and video review. There will be two on-water rowing sessions per day.  Breakfast and lunch are included. Sculls are available or you may bring your own boat and/or oars if desired. Instruction can be in singles or doubles. Quads are available upon request and availability.

This is very much a technique-oriented camp, but you'll have plenty of time over meals to talk with John and Charlotte about racing, training, erging or other issues.

Out of town rowers may find accommodations at a number of hotels within 2 miles of the club.

 Lockers and showers are available on site.

Space is limited to 12 rowers per session.
