Hello! My name is Ricardo, I am currently a junior in high school with a passion for the sport of rowing. I have been accepted into a summer rowing camp in Philadelphia at Upper River Boat Club. Upper River has been generous enough to give me a 50% discount on the camp's expenses, however, I still need your help to come up with the rest of the money.
Why Upper River? Upper River offers a 7-week long summer development camp for high school athletes who are serious about the sport of rowing. I will get the opportunity to train under elite coaches, and use top notch equipment. I will also get the opportunity to race at some of the most competitive summer races in the U.S. and Canada!
How will I benefit from this camp? Rowing at Upper River will allow me to increase both my aerobic fitness and experience in the sport. It will look great in my college application and hopefully help me get recruited to my dream school. Apart from rowing, this opportunity will give me a taste of what being an adult is like. I will have to take care of myself for 7-weeks in an environment full of people that I don't know, and learn how to manage my time well so that each and everyone of my days there is productive.
Thank you in advance for all of your support!
