Name of Camp: Sparks Summer Rowing Camps 

  • Hosting Organization: Sparks Consulting
  • Dates: July 21-July 25, 2015; July 28-August 1, 2015; August 9-13, 2015
  • Location: Middleton, CT and Seattle, WA
  • Cost: $1295
  • Age: 14-19
  • Body of Water: Connecticut River and Lake Union 
Camp Description: 

Our camps' mission is to inspire and raise athletic and personal awareness via access to a large array of top quality head and senior assistant coaches in a smaller summer camp format to meet campers on their specific level. 

Why Middletown? 

Our camp in Middletown is based entirely at Wesleyan University, was our first rowing camp, and is still our flagship. Middletown has an apt name in that it is right smack in the middle of the biggest rowing population in America, and offers easy access for campers and coaches alike. Wesleyan's dorms and dining facilities top in class, and the boathouse is walkable from campus. 

Why Seattle? 

Although we basically offer the same camp in Seattle and Middletown, we thought it was important to briefly differentiate between the two locations. We like Seattle given the weather in August, the accessibility to the Seattle airport, and the growth of rowing on the midwest and on the west coast. Our setup is similar to Middletown in that campers will stay in college dorms and walk to the boathouse, but it is also different in that our Seattle camp is not entirely based on one university campus but instead spread between Seattle Rowing Center and Seattle Pacific University.
