We are donating 100% of our new monthly membership profits in November 2021 to the Camp Lucy Program by George Pocock Rowing Foundation.
Camp Lucy is a new program by the George Pocock Rowing Foundation for middle school girls from diverse backgrounds in the Seattle, WA area. “The Ultimate Learn-to-Row Experience,” Camp Lucy includes an introduction to erging, rowing in team boats, strength and fitness, life skills workshops, and mentorship.
We support opportunities for young women in rowing. By providing a free, bilingual program focused on middle school girls, Camp Lucy is an exciting opportunity to get young people excited about rowing, physical fitness, and healthy lifestyles. Camp Lucy honors the legacy of Lucy Pocock, George Pocock’s sister and a pioneer of women’s rowing and coaching. Through rowing, GPRF empowers confident, strong, healthy young women and share the Pocock philosophy of “harmony, balance, and rhythm” for rowing and life.
Thank you for helping support youth development initiatives, increase diversity in the sport, and change lives through the sport of rowing.
