A few notes on the camp:

·        Please do not have a big breakfast just before 7AM.

·        Boys need to be picked up and dropped off between the morning and afternoon session. Please be on time with pick up and drop off as our volunteer coaches have work and other commitments to get to and will depart promptly at the end of the session and cannot wait around.

·        Day 3 (Friday, 2 February) we have our standard morning session. The afternoon session starts at 2PM. We will travel by bus to the Cusack’s Farm for our annual Rowing Challenge.

·        We will wrap the camp up with dinner for rowers and their families at the Cusack's Farm from 6PM with parents taking their boys home at the conclusion.  All families are welcome and encouraged to attend.  Food will be provided but please BYOG. If you are not attending the dinner then please arrange to pick up your boy(s) between 6:45PM-7:30PM. The Cusack's Farm is located on Sutton Road between Sutton and Gundaroo, just after Mulligan's Flat Road. The property name is "Bywong". A google map showing directions from CRC to "Bywong" is at the following link.

·        If your son has an injury we ask that you encourage him to still come along, but advise the coaches of the injury so they do not undertake activities that may cause further injury. Boys with injuries will be able to assist with the running of activities and for rowing, they can observe from the coaches boat and learn a lot.

·        On Saturday (ie the day after rowing camp) we have a rowing regatta to put into practice the hard work from rowing camp.
