Join us in Figueira da Foz on Portugal’s beautiful west coast to complete your Duke of Edinburgh`s Gold Residential while taking part in group rowing on a 2km championship lake, led by our fully qualified coaches and enjoy the sun and fun of the beach just 5 minutes walk from the accommodation.
We provide accommodation in our townhouse, all meals, boats, coaching including video analysis and an individually designed programme to maximise your time with us and complete your Gold award requirements.
We have run many camps for schools and clubs for all standards from novice to Henley and Head of Charles Champions. We have equipment suitable for all abilities including for beginners designed to keep the boat afloat while you take your first steps on the water to get used to rowing to normal fine boats for more advanced rowers.
We assess you at the start of camp and agree with you a personalised programme of training which we monitor daily and at the end of your camp we provide a completion report which details your progress and provide tips for how to continue to improve in rowing. This report is also what you can submit to the DofE for completion of your Gold residential award.
As an optional extra we can arrange surfing lessons and practice including suit and board hire and lifeguard supervision at a nearby beach. Many of our clients have done it – everyone loves it!
Our camp is running from 2nd to 16th August, 2020 and we row on weekdays. You can choose either an 8 day camp with 5 days rowing or a 5 day camp with 3 days rowing.
We offer a free chaperone service by train on Sundays (times to be agreed) and can accompany transfer by train on other days for a small fee (dependent on numbers).
